One of the world’s leading motorsport tire engineers, Fiorenzo Brivio, has joined Dmack after working for 30 years in the motorsport department at Pirelli. He joins Dmack – an authorized tire supplier to the FIA World Rally Championship – in the new position of motorsport technical director and will strengthen the performance of the company’s gravel and asphalt rally tires in particular.
Brivio was responsible for inventing and developing some of the first successful tread patterns for gravel and snow rallies – an approach that was then adopted by all major manufacturers. His sealed-surface experience will also help Dmack to develop new products for circuit racing and track use – opening up additional non-rally markets and race series opportunities.
Dick Cormack, MD at Dmack, said, “Dmack has achieved an enormous amount in the last five years but now it’s time for us to raise the bar another level. Fiorenzo’s appointment will ensure we have the technical expertise within Dmack and I believe his knowledge of motorsport compounds and constructions is both unrivalled and invaluable. Our goal is to partner with a top WRC manufacturer and we’re now one step closer to achieving that.”
Brivio commented, “I was searching for a new challenge after more than 30 years in the motorsport industry and Dmack provided me with the perfect opportunity. The company has made great steps over the last few years and I’m hoping my passion, experience and technical knowledge will allow us to develop new tires and attract top level teams within the WRC.”
