As for the tires, the rubber that will be used in the R7 Cup are the Pirelli Diablo Superbike, the same ones used in WorldSBK. In some tests, drivers will be able to choose between the SC1 or SC2 compound to define their race strategy, since the first, which is the softest, may be less effective in conditions of high track temperatures, very aggressive driving or in the face of a very rough asphalt, for example.

All of this can be tested in the two test sessions scheduled for this month of March, prior to the start of the season, which will begin on April 6 at the Madrid Jarama Circuit.
