The Prokart Africa 24 Hour Endurance event is proud to announce MG Tires as the official tyre partner for the 24 Hour race, 2018.
The Prokart Africa 24 Hour committee have embarked on extensive research and testing since early 2018 to choose the right partner for this event. We wanted a tyre that was not only durable, but also one that performed well under our local conditions and allowed for close racing and overtaking. We believe this tyre is the right choice and have selected two different compounds out of those that were tested for this event. The compounds chosen will be kept secret until 1st December in order to ensure all teams have the same disadvantage in terms of tyre knowledge. Don’t worry though, we know you will be pleasantly surprised. Each team will be provided with 3 sets of tyres: Two hard compounds and one softer compound. Tyre testing data will be shared with all entered teams to allow for race strategy and planning before the day.
Having had a chat with owners of MG Tires in Brazil, we immediately knew that they were the right partners for this event as they shared a vision to promote great experiences that stimulate the passion for Karting, as does Prokart SSS.
MG is a Brazilian company founded in 1989 that soon became one of the main karting tires manufacturer in the world.
