Avon Tyres Motorsport supplies tyres to over 150 racing championships around the world. There's no tougher arena for a tyre than motorsport and Avon Tyres has been at the front of the grid for more than 40 years. Avon Tyres is now the title sponsor and control tyre supplier of the prestigious British GT Championship. The series known as the Avon Tyres British GT Championship features marques such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lotus, Morgan, Mosler, Panoz and Porsche. The company can trace its sportscar roots back to the 1959 World Championship when Stirling Moss led the Aston Martin team to the title, including a dominant 1st & 2nd finish at the Le Mans 24hrs race. In recent years Avon Tyres have been used to secure many championship victories in World Sportscar C2, FIA SR2 and ALMS SR2.
