WorldSBK Jerez: Pirelli to debut development soft tyres

WorldSBK spec-tyre supplier Pirelli will bring new front and rear development tyres to the Jerez round.

At the back, the standard soft SC0 is joined by two development solutions of the same compound but with different characteristics.

The soft development solution X1351 was introduced the previous year in Jerez, well appreciated by the majority of the grid.


The soft development solution Z0121 makes its debut here in Jerez and has important changes in the shoulder area to improve the footprint and increase the lateral thrust at maximum lean angles.

In addition to these solutions, at the rear the riders will also be able to use the SCX tyre in super soft compound that can be used during the qualifying session in preparation for the use of the only Superpole tyre available to the riders, and possibly for the Tissot Superpole Race if the circuit allows it.

There are three options for the front, two standard and one development solution. The standard SC1 represents the most successful front tyre during the last season of the Championship, while the standard SC2 is an evolution of the development SC2 X1071 used in 2019.

The news is a new soft development solution SC1 Y1231, which has a new structure designed to increase lateral thrust when cornering.

In the WorldSSP category, on the other hand, there will be four dry solutions available to riders, two front and as many rear options, which are all standard solutions. For the front there will be the standard SC1 soft compound, and the standard SC2 medium compound that allows more wear resistance than the first option.
As for the rear, for the first time the WorldSSP600 riders will have available the solutions of the Superbike slick range, in the larger size 190/60 introduced during the previous year.

Riders will be able to choose between the standard SC0 soft compound, further improved to offer maximum performance, and the standard SC1 medium compound, designed to offer the right compromise between top, constant performance and limited wear.
