The environmental benefits of ContiRe

View Post

With environmental consciousness front of mind across the transport industry and society as a whole, commercial fleet operators work hard to reduce fuel consumption, to meet strict legal requirements and help lower overall driving costs. When it comes to tyres, one of the most effective ways operators can lessen environmental impact is by choosing retreads for their fleets. Tyre retreading extends the useful lifetime of a tyre and is a more economical alternative to buying completely new tyres. By reusing the casing, energy and raw materials are saved, and the number of old tyres in circulation is reduced. As one of the world’s leading tyre manufacturers, Continental has a wealth of experience in retreading and casing management. As part of its ContiLifeCycle programme, it offers high-quality retreads under the ContiRe name.

Beitske Visser emerged as her closest rival. The Dutch driver won one race and produced consistently strong performances to keep the title race alive until the finale at Brands Hatch. However, she was ultimately unable to stop Chadwick from claiming the title.
