The Euro Nitro Series is pleased to announce that for its upcoming fourth season it will switch to a single tyre partner for all four rounds of the championship. With 2016 another growth year for the high pro le onroad nitro championship, the number of drivers registering points at the end of the third season breaking the 300 mark, feedback highlighted a desire among racers for the ENS to switch to a single brand of tyre for the entire season. Also taking onboard racers’ experiences of previous seasons, tyre quality was identi ed as the No.1 priority for drivers and reacting to this the ENS has agreed a partnership with Matrix for 2017. The Italian tyre manufacturer supplied the tyres for the very rst ENS race in 2014 and has provided tyres for a race each season since. Apart from the single tyre brand creating a level of familiarity for drivers another key bene t is that racers can carry sets of tyres through for practice at the following round.
With In nity’s Teemu Leino (1:10) and Shepherd’s Simon Kurzbuch (1:8) out to try & defend their respective ENS titles, Season #4 kicks off in France over the weekend of May 19-21. A country with a rich onroad nitro racing history, and with the ENS attracting a growing number of French competitors last season, the addition of the Mulhouse track has been welcomed by racers and manufacturers. After the season opener it is back to more familiar surrounds as Ettlingen in Germany holds Round 2 in July. From there it is on to Aigen in Austria in August with Fiorano in Italy once again bringing the season to a close at the end of September.
