*******Schumacher Announcement - Shimizu Tyres*******
Pit Shimizu, the famous Japanese RC tyre manufacturer, has now closed.
Schumacher Racing, previously one of their leading distributors, are pleased to announce that they have acquired the Shimizu mould tools, rubber compounds, and ancillary tyre manufacturing equipment.
Production of the most popular tyres should re-start in about 3 months.
These will include:
- The legendary PS-0400 (XG-RAIN) which is the BRCA control tyre for wet weather touring car racing in UK.
- Shimizu F1 tyres have a fantastic reputation on carpet which are the BRCA control tyres for F1 indoor carpet racing.
- PS-571 (XG-571)
- PS-575 (XG-575)
- The very popular treaded tyres for M-Chassis, and will soon be back, as well as the PS-0430 M-chassis slick tyres.
We would like to thank Mr Shimizu and Mr Ishii for their cooperation and we wish them a long and happy retirement.
