Avon Tyres in Racing
The Avon Tyre Co which is doing very well, is to take a new involvement in competition affairs, exporting over 60%, of its racing rubber to Italy and to new markets in Australia, and increasing its British involvement in F2 and Group C racing, while continuing to supply tyres on an exclusive basis to competitors in the Marlboro F3 Championship. Information can be obtained from Avon’s Racing Division at Melksham, Wiltshire. With Japan linking with Dunlop it is nice to learn that the all-British Avon Company is doing so well in the competitive tyre business. Its interesting Tyre Museum at Melksham in Wiltshire can be visited by appointment, which should be of interest to Clubs planning social outings. — W.B.
