Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R Sets Record With Audi RS 3

The Audi RS 3 set a record at the Nurburgring circuit in Germany with Trofeo R tires in 265/30Z R19 size at the front and 245/35Z R19 at the back.

The Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R has set a record with the new Audi RS 3 at the Nurburgring circuit in Germany, showcasing the capabilities of Pirelli’s most sporting street tire, the company says. The Audi set a new record of 7m40.748s on the 20.8-km circuit, beating the previous record for compact cars by 4.64 seconds, which was established back in 2019.

This record was achieved in combination with the performance of the Trofeo R tires, in 265/30Z R19 size at the front and 245/35Z R19 at the back. The larger tires at the front are a particular factor in enhancing the driving experience to deliver a sportier feel, the company says.

Together with Audi, Pirelli’s engineers developed a bespoke version of the P Zero Trofeo R for this latest RS 3: track tires also created for road use, which are derived from Pirelli’s experience in motorsport championships, the company says. Pirelli says the tire uses the latest technology for compound, structure, and tread pattern, for good performance on the road as well as the track. The tires are made at Pirelli’s Izmit factory in Turkey, a facility that also produces motorsport tires for different championships that Pirelli is involved in, using the same technology and equipment that is utilized to make motorsport tires.

Team Falken driver Justin Hall secured a first-place finish in the 4500 class racing with the Wildpeak R/T race tires in the 4500 class and Edwin Abd of ABD Motorsports took third in the 4400 class racing with the Wildpeak M/T race tires.

At the start of the event, Hall was unable to participate in the qualifying race due to one of his crank seals pushing out. To resolve the issue, he put silicone on it and let it set overnight so it would be good to go for the main races. Not participating in the qualifying heat put him behind the competition in the first heat. Team Falken said starting from the back was only a minor inconvenience for Hall. Throughout the whole race, the silicone held up well and Justin was able to pass the competition in the first heat, securing a first-place lead.
