METZELER ANNOUNCES 2013 ROAD RACING PROGRAMME
March 19 2013.


Metzeler has announced a Road Racing Summer spectacular as the German tyre brand celebrates it's 150th anniversary, with a full line-up of events and racing activities planned at the Isle of Man TT, Post-TT races, Ulster GP and North West 200.


Visitors to the Isle of Man TT races can savour the race action and atmosphere in two exciting, unique ways. The Metzeler Village will offer 300 free camping places in unmistakable Metzeler blue tents at the National Sports Centre, Douglas. Visitors can book online at www.metzeler.com/roadracinglive and it's free to anyone who turns up with Metzeler tyres fitted to their bike.

The company will also be hosting a special 150th Anniversary party free to all bikers at the Villa Marina on the main Promenade, on Friday 7th June, the date of the Senior TT. A full itinerary of activities, entertainment and bands will be announced soon.

After the TT, the traditional Southern 100 event will have Metzeler title sponsorship at this unique wall-lined course at Castletown, where massed starts and tight turns thrill the knowledgeable crowds. The 4.25 mile Billown course will now host the Metzeler Post TT Races on Saturday 8th June.
 
Metzeler will also be headline sponsor of the 'Fastest Race in the World', the Metzeler Ulster GP in Northern Ireland. Attracting 50,000 spectators during Bike Week, the 7.4 mile Dundrod circuit regularly witnesses racers clock 133mph average lap speeds.

Hand in hand with these activities Metzeler has chosen key race teams and riders to support in a comprehensive attack on the main Road Racing events, ushering in a new era of focus and development from the German tyre manufacturer.

Extensive support from a dedicated Metzeler R+D team means the cutting edge Metzeler Superbike slicks and RR road legal tyres for Supersport and Superstock will be ready for high speed action at all the season's road race events.
