Bertil Roos Racing School Announces Partnership with Tire Streets

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- Bertil Roos Racing School (BRRS) and Tire Streets announce a partnership that will see Tire Streets become the Exclusive Tire Supplier of Bertil Roos Racing School.

Tire Streets is an online tire retailer that is focused on making it easy and affordable for drivers to have access to quality performance tires. Their involvement in the grassroots community and efforts to provide emerging drivers with the opportunity to race makes this partnership with Bertil Roos Racing School a perfect fit.

“We’re very excited to be working with such a legendary school. To be a part of growing the sport and its education is the foundation we’ve built Tire Streets on, “ says Kaylee Zozos, Tire Streets’ eCommerce Manager.

Tire Streets will be supplying Bertil Roos with the Accelera PHI-R tire, a versatile, all-season performance tire with 400 treadwear that works well for both drift and track applications.

In addition to the partnership as the exclusive tire supplier of Bertil Roos Racing School, Tire Streets will also have logo placement for Accelera tires on each BRRS vehicle along with marketing material, including discount codes that students can redeem on the Tire Streets website.

“Street tires on a formula car can show an extreme amounts of wear with a lot of cornering and braking loads on a light car,” Bertil Roos Racing School President Dennis Macchio said. “When we put Accelera tires on the car, they not only performed well during our testing, but proved to be an extremely durable and long-lived tire.”
