The new Pirelli hillclimb tyre comes in two versions: slick (with soft and supersoft compounds available) and Cinturato rain. These tyres have been developed with the help of Simone Faggioli, a multiple Italian and European hillclimb champion. Pirelli will equip the top category of prototype in hillclimbs next year (weighing 560 kilograms and producing 500 horsepower) as well as the medium category (weighing 470 kilograms and producing 350 horsepower). These are the two premier categories in the sport, which is growing in popularity throughout the world.
