"I'm absolutely delighted to welcome Goodyear to Formula Virtual. Goodyear are a fantastic company and also have a rich motorsport history while raking in a lot of success. As part of Formula Virtuals long term plan, it is important that we move to a sole tyre supplier. With Michelin and Firestone's contracts ending at the end of 2016, whom also did a fantastic job, it was an opportunity to sign up a tyre company for the foreseeable future. We had many options, but ultimately we accepted Goodyear in what I believe will turn out to be a great decision. Goodyear will become the series fourth tyre supplier, but the intention is that we continue our partnership together for many years to come", said Nic Morley, whom was present at the event.
Six Formula Virtual show cars were revealed at the event, each showcasing each of the six tyre compounds teams can use in 2017. A slideshow is presented below that showcases the six tyre compounds.
