Sis­son set for Manx MRF tyre test­ing

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

BTRDA reg­u­lar Wayne Sis­son will head to Rally Isle of Man with tyre test­ing the main goal.

Sis­son has used In­dian-made MRF tyres in the BTRDA this sea­son on his Mit­subishi Lancer E10 and has been im­pressed by the cov­ers, which have been used sparsely in Europe de­spite win­ning events in the Asia Pa­cific Rally Cham­pi­onship.

Al­though the firm won’t have an as­phalt tyre avail­able for the event, Sis­son will do test work to set the car up ready for when it does.

“The idea is to see how the E10 re­acts on dif­fer­ent tyres so that when MRF get theirs up and run­ning I can com­pare and if there’s any­thing wrong we can work out whether it’s the car or tyres,” he ex­plained.

Sis­son scored a BTRDA podium on the Mal­colm Wil­son in March, the best re­sult of his sea­son so far.
