Starting in 2008, BFGoodrich will no longer participate in the WRC -- World Rally Championship

The FIA, in the tire supply bidding process for 2008, 2009 and 2010 WRC seasons, did not choose the BFGoodrich brand proposals.

"We demonstrated during the 2006 championship that the BFGoodrich tires were the best. Two World Champion titles crowned these successes. In 2007, not a single competitor in the tire industry wished to officially oppose the BFGoodrich brand.

The financial and technical efforts we deployed for the past two seasons have therefore not been acknowledged, which is all the more regrettable since we know that today's and tomorrow's WRC car manufacturers unanimously supported our proposal.

The BFGoodrich brand was therefore eliminated on the basis of criteria unknown to us but obviously unrelated to sports. For the time being, we take note of this decision", said Mr. F. Henry-Biabaud, BFGoodrich Rally Competition Director.
