    Official: Pirelli back in the WRC for 2018 - DMACK is taking a sabatical year

    https://rallysportmag.com/dmack-pire...18-wrc-season/

    That's an interesting one and quite a surprise. Any ideas which of the Manufacturers that will switch to Pirelli?
    Supporting Citroën and Ogier in the WRC & Ferrari in F1 & Ducati in MotoGP. Anti Hamilton and anti McCheat!

    I guess no one wanted DMACK tyres for next year, I wonder if they'll really be back after the sabbatical.

    Their target market seems to be more WRC2/ERC and regional champsionships, that's where their tyres seem to sell well. So I wonder if WRC is really just for exposure, now they go back to focusing on making profit.

    It's great to have Pirelli back. A brand with amazing rally heritage; nice to see Chinese owners respecting Pirelli independence.

    DMack has been quite bold; it's not easy to challenge a giant like Michelin at the WRC! Leaving the manus target and developing their good work in the lower categories seems to be a sensible choice. Best luck to them.

    I hope we will see WRC17 cars with all 3 tyre manufacturer tyres.

    For sure in WRC2/RC2 we will see those 3 and maybe others also MRF? Hankook? Kumho?

    Fun Friday Fact: in 2016 Ott Tanak scored 30 fastest WRC stage times using DMACK tyres. In 2017 he also scored 30 stage wins using Michelin tyres !
