Italian tyre firm Pirelli has confirmed that it will support TEG Sport’s Arron Newby during his 2013 rally programme.

Lancashire-based TEG Sport has helped Pirelli run its prestigious Star Driver programme for the past four years, and the team has been commended for its efforts in providing the Italian tyre firm with both a reliable and professional service.

As a result of the long-standing relationship between the two companies, Pirelli has agreed to support 17-year-old Newby who has been making a strong impression on his debut season competing in this year’s British Rally Championship at the wheel of a Skoda Fabia R2.

Furthermore, Newby recently celebrated his third consecutive victory in a four-wheel-drive Subaru Impreza N11 on the Jane Cowling Memorial Phoenix Stages Rally.The teenager crossed the finish line with a winning margin of 34 seconds, marking a hat-trick of wins for the Pirelli-backed driver.

Pirelli UK Motorsport operations manager, Matthew Corby, commented: “TEG Sport has done a terrific job since being involved in our Pirelli Star Drive programme. Year after year, they have provided us with a competitive and reliable car. They have also played an instrumental role in helping our former Pirelli Star Driver Elfyn Evans finish runner up in last year’s British Rally Championship, as well as achieving the 2009 team title and 2010 drivers’ championship title. TEG is an extremely professional team and we are looking forward to developing our relationship further by supporting Arron during his 2013 rally activities. It is clear that Arron has raw talent behind the wheel, and his recent trio of wins is testament to that.”
