Pirelli will supply all cars in the World Challenge GT, GTS and Touring Car categories with the P Zero Racing Slick and P Zero Racing Rain tires beginning in 2011, the 22nd year of the SCCA Pro Racing-sanctioned Championship.

"Our colleagues at Pirelli have been very professional in coming to the agreement on the partnership," said Scott Bove of World Challenge. "Our competitors have been asking for a racing slick for years and Pirelli is able to do this."

"Pirelli Tire North America is proud to be the exclusive tire supplier for the World Challenge," said Tom Gravalos from Pirelli Tire North America. "This is a highly competitive racing series, and will help drivers, teams and fans develop a strong, positive relationship with the Pirelli brand. This is an exciting time for Pirelli Motorsport, as we continue our strategy of growth and development and are now partnered with some of the most important race series and world championships in the world, including Formula One, GP2, GP3, the VW TDI Cup, Ferrari Challenge, Lamborghini Super Trofeo, Pirelli Drivers Cup USA and now, World Challenge."

The World Challenge recently concluded its 2010 season, crowning a Drivers' Champion and a coveted Manufacturers' Champion in each of the three classes after a 12-race season, the largest in Series history. All World Challenge races are a maximum of 50 minutes in length and feature standing starts with popular cars from the world's leading manufacturers racing head-to-head.
