MX REVIEW- PIRELLI CONTINUE OFF-ROAD DOMINATION WITH DOUBLE WORLD AND BRITISH TITLES PLUS WESTON BEACH RACE VICTORY




Pirelli took its World MX Championship tally to an incredible 58 titles as it won both MX1 and MX2 titles, whilst repeating the 'double' in the British series.

The dominant Italian marque also recently won the notoriously difficult Weston Beach Race to make 2012 a gold medal winning year.Earlier, KTM factory riders Antonio Cairoli and Jeffrey Herlings powered to MX1 and MX2 FIM World MX Championships ahead of schedule at the penultimate round to give Pirelli their 57th and 58th World Titles.In a talent filled British Championship, HM Plant KTM UK pilots Kevin Strijbos and Elliott Banks Browne repeated the feat to make it a KTM-Pirelli double-double. In the Weston Beach Race, Herlings took on the dunes to take victory in front of 65,000 fans who braved the elements in this long standing endurance event. Ken De Dycker made it two Pirelli runners on the podium with a fine third place ‘on the beach’.The legendary Pirelli Scorpion MX tyres again took on and excelled in deep mud, energy sapping sand, loamy dirt and hard pack conditions around the World’s circuits to make this another year to remember for the Italian tyre giant.

Pirelli UK Racing Manager Jason Griffiths commented, “This really has been a fantastic year for Pirelli off-road with the company taking double top in both World and British Championships. Congratulations to Roger Magee and the team for clinching the British Championship double. Jeffrey Herlings first appearance at the Weston Beach Race was really the icing on the cake for Pirelli UK’s motocross schedule, with British fans able to witness his now legendary sand riding technique!”
