Oliver Solberg highlighted the ‘consistency’ of his Pirelli tyres after he won Rally Liepāja for a second time last weekend.

The FIA ERC1 Junior Championship leader selected the soft-compound Pirelli Scorpion K6 tyre for the high-speed gravel event, despite the high ambient and ground temperatures experienced.

Pirelli’s Scorpion K6 benefits from a specialised compound and bespoke tread pattern to maximise grip and reduce sliding, thanks to the efficient evacuation of loose gravel and stones.

Afterwards, Solberg said: “The tyre wear has been fantastic all weekend, very consistent even with the temperatures.”
