Jetracing, the first-ever truck racing tyre in India from JK Tyre, proved to be a major success at the T1 Prima Truck Racing Championship 2015 held at the Buddh International Circuit, Greater Noida.


Having made its Indian debut last year in the first season of the T1 Prima Truck Racing Championship, the reliable and grippy Jetracing tyres impressed the experts and international truck drivers present at the event.


JK Tyre Jetracing tyres were specially developed for the T1 Prima Truck Racing Championship and boast of optimized contact patch to meet the grueling turning requirements of a racing circuit. The asymmetric tread pattern is designed for better handling on a dry track. It has asymmetric shoulder drop with a rounded outer shoulder for a balanced cornering and lateral stability. The shallow circumferential grooves with optimized groove sections provide the much needed heat dissipation. The belt package is optimized in terms of lay and angle for excellent tread stiffness that enhances the steering and handling ability.


Arun K Bajoria, President & Member of the Board of Directors, JK Tyre & Industries Ltd. said, “Although we were excited to know that the PRIMA race truck are 10 per cent faster with a speed of upto 130 kmph compared to 110 kmph last year, we took it upon ourselves to develop higher specs tyres. The latest tyre has been developed using new design technique of ‘Tapered tread profile’ completed with ‘HE wire’ and ‘special wire wrap’, these tyres are capable to run upto a speed of 160 kmph.”


He added, “Jetracing tyre is an example of JK Tyre’s superior research and product development capabilities. Measuring at 315/80R22.5, the tyre is designed with special low heat and high traction compound to meet the most gruelling braking conditions of a racing circuit.  With the second season of our partnership with T1 Prima Truck Racing Championship, we are confident the race drivers will enjoy pumping up the speeds.
