Tillotson and Maxxis have collaborated since 2018 when Tillotson chose the Maxxis karting tyre for the newly developed T4 Series. The companies worked together through Schuurman BV, European distributor for Maxxis based in Holland, to create the official Maxxis T4 tyres which is now used globally for T4 Series categories.
This partnership has now grown into a three-year sponsorship deal for the International Tillotson T4 Series & annual T4 Nations Cup. This record-breaking deal in the world of karting will help with the growth and development of T4 Series & T4 Nations Cup.
Charles A Demirjian, President of Tillotson, commented “This is a landmark partnership in the karting world. Maxxis has been an integral part of the success of the T4 Series from the beginning. We look forward to our continued collaboration as we grow both brands and provide the best karting experience possible to pilots around the world.”
Since 1986 Maxxis has worked in an exclusive cooperation with Schuurman BV. The two companies have worked tirelessly together to produce products for the karting industry that meet the highest possible standards. One of these high demands is meeting FIA homologation requirements in which Maxxis has been successful for many years. Schuurman BV played an integral role in creating Tillotson T4 Series tyres as the official development and testing partner for all kart tyres on behalf of Maxxis.
Schuurman BV commented, “We are very proud to be part of this unique process of creating a class specific T4 tyre, as well as the new and exciting sponsorship in which Tillotson and Maxxis have agreed.”
