Pirelli to supply Superbike World Championship until 2018

Pirelli has been confirmed as the official and exclusive tyre supplier for the FIM Superbike World Championship until the end of the 2018 season.

The agreement continues a partnership which began in 2004 and is, according to the series, the longest-running control tyre supplier relationship in the history of international motorsport.

Javier Alonso, the executive director of the series, said: “This renewal testifies our excellent relationship with the Italian company, a partnership for more than a decade that has always been strong with both the International Motorcycling Federation and the promoter and organiser of the series, and is clear evidence of Pirelli's ongoing and constant ability to innovate and to offer products at the forefront of technology.”

There are two races of the 2014 season left, with Magny Cours in France hosting an event on 5th October and the Losail International Circuit in Qatar hosting the finale on 2nd November.
