AVON TYRES: Over 100 years of experience
AVON's first tyres saw the light of day as early as 1885 and quickly became a success story. The company's entry into racing began in the 1950s and many years later Jack Brabham, Keke Rosberg, Michele Alboreto and Jochen Mass, among others, were racing on AVON tyres. The first World Championship point in Formula 1 was scored for AVON in 1981 by a certain Slim Borgudd, who was the session drummer for the legendary pop band ABBA. At the Silverstone circuit in England, he managed a sixth-place finish, which was good for just that one point at the time. Manfred Winkelhock, among others, later scored further points. Successes that were in the tradition of 1959, when Aston Martin not only won the 24 Hours of Le Mans on AVON tyres, but even the entire sports car championship of that year through Sterling Moss.
Also closely associated with AVON is the Briton Steve Webster, who rose to become the most successful driver in the FIM Sidecar World Championship, winning ten championships and a total of 62 races - most of them with tyres from AVON.
