EFRA seeking tire additive manufacturers

EFRA logo

EFRA got in touch with us to ask the different brands of tire additives, who wish to have their product approved for use at EFRA gas on road events next year, to send them samples of their product for testing. At the recent AGM, EFRA made the use of tire additive legal at 1/8th and 1/10th scale gas on road events but they wish to ensure that the treatments used are not volatile or toxic, hence the need for pre approval.
