Yokohama Tire is back as the official tire supplier of Nitrocross. The manufacturers Advan race tires will be the exclusive spec tires for the premier Group E Nitrocross class.
The six-city, 10-round, race series is headlined by the Group E class, which features an electric race car, the FC1-X. Nitrocross events integrate jumps with banked turns on a variety of track surfaces all in a single lap.
“For the 2023-2024 season, the Group E class will run a specially developed Advan A005 slick tire,” said Patricia Wall, Yokohama’s motorsports manager. “It was designed to withstand the huge amount of torque applied by the 1055 horsepower, all-wheel-drive FC1-X. The tires will feature blue tire stickers signifying the tire is E+, part of our line intended for electric vehicle use.”
