European premium tyre manufacturer Apollo Vredestein woos bobsleigh champion Mica McNeill, who has chosen the Comtrac 2 Winter tyres to travel to her winter training grounds in Europe this year.
Safety and performance are top priorities for the young athlete, whose endeavours include winning silver at the Innsbruck 2012 Youth Olympic Games and securing Great Britain’s best ever female finish for her full Olympic debut as Team GB’s bobsleigh pilot in the PyeongChang 2018.
“I am driven by speed, performance and personal achievement,” says Mica, who is training for Beijing 2022, “and top performance is what I seek in winter tyres.”
“When Mica mentioned that she needed winter tyres for her van, ahead of travelling to the Alps for her winter training, I knew exactly which ones to fit,” said Mica’s local Vredestein tyre dealership Tyres2U principal Peter Kerr.
Vredestein’s award-winning winter range is not limited to the Comtrac 2 Winter van tyres, of course: its latest premium winter tyre designed for high performance passenger vehicles, the Wintrac Pro, joined an illustrious family of cold weather options like the Snowtrac 5 and the studded Arctrac tyres, both used on sportscars at events such as the Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique.
