As the weather gets milder and the days longer, many of us are heading back to the track after more than a year of disruption.
The thrill of driving a car on a circuit is unparalleled. It enables one to unlock the performance of the vehicle in comparative safety and understand how the car behaves at speed and how its dynamics alter as the speed increases.
Some people take the opportunity to have professional instruction in the art of track driving from instructors who have years of experience on both track days and competition events. They can help to keep you safe as you learn how to control and enjoy your vehicle at high speed.
Beyond this, there is a great social aspect, with some firm friendships being made in the paddocks and cafes at circuits throughout the UK and beyond – enthusiasts brought together through a mutual love of speed.
Whether you're heading out to your favourite track or simply an early morning drive through the countryside as the sun rises, having the right tyre is a central and crucial factor – after all, it's your only direct contact with the tarmac.
Pirelli have been in the business of making tyres since before the birth of the motor car. The Italian firm has also provided tyres to motorsport on both 2 and 4 wheels and is the current supplier to the Formula One and World Superbike World Championships, providing over 40,000 tyres a year.
They are also the original equipment provider of tyres at manufacturer level, including Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren and Porsche, working closely with these companies to develop tyres for some of the fastest cars in production.
