Pirelli to Join the existing band of tire suppliers, Michelin, D'MACK and Hankook in 2014

FIA, the international motorsport authority announced that Pirelli, one of the most prominent global tyre manufacturer is shown interest to be one of the tyre supplier for WRC. Below is the official press release by the FIA.

The FIA is pleased to confirm that four manufacturers have registered to supply tyres to the 2014 FIA World Rally Championship.
DMACK, Hankook and Michelin continue to support the Championship and will be joined by Pirelli for next season.

FIA Rally Director, Jarmo Mahonen said: “We are obviously very pleased to have competition between four manufacturers next year, three of whom are already supporting our Championships. Having Pirelli return to the series is also very positive, and together these four brands will provide a great platform for open competition as well as choice and variety for our competitors.”

They were out of WRC by the end of season 2010, and it is indeed a good omen to the sport. Hope more competition fields up in every area of the sport.
