Maxxis Tyre of Choice for Excite Rally Raid

British Cross Country Championship team, Excite Rally Raid, have elected Maxxis Wormdrive AT-980E 4x4 tyres as their tyres of choice for the 2021 season.

Excite Rally Raid, a British Cross Country Championship (BXCC) team made up of an all-female driver line-up for the 2021 season, have chosen to run Maxxis tyres for the 2021 BXCC season.

Running a Mitsubishi Pajero T2 cladded with the aggressive all-terrain tyres from Maxxis, the Wormdrive AT-980E, Excite are going for gold in the 2021 British Cross Country Championship.

“We were aware of Maxxis’ prowess in the off-road scene already, and knew that their 4×4 tyres could give us the competitive edge. We opted for the Wormdrive AT-980E as it features an aggressive, grippy tread pattern, which we are certain will excel in particularly difficult conditions. We are also excited to put the Wormdrive’s durable construction to the test throughout the season.” – Dean Faulkner, Sponsor and Partnerships Manager, Excite Rally Raid

Championship-winning Jade Paveley will be the primary driver for Excite Rally Raid in the BXCC 2021 season, to support her mission to both win championships and raise the profile of women in motorsport. Co-drivers Hannah Davison and Claire Williams both bring a wealth of their own experience from various rally series including the BTRDA Rally Championship and share the same goals, leading BXCC fans to expect a thrilling 2021 season.

The Maxxis Wormdrive AT-980E is an all-terrain 4×4 tyre designed to offer plenty of comfortable mileage on the road, with impressive grip in more difficult off-road conditions. Ideal for 4×4 enthusiasts who need to drive both on and off-road, or farmers or horse owners who frequently need to drive across a variety of terrains, this tyre also features cut- and puncture-resistant sidewalls for ultimate driver peace of mind.

We are proud to support Excite Rally Raid for the 2021 season. In addition to supporting their clear goals for the British Cross Country Championship and other activities, too, we are excited to be supporting an all-female driver line-up for the season.” – Phoebe Kingdon, Marketing Manager, Maxxis Tyres

The opening round of the 2021 BXCC is due to commence on 12th-13th June, and will be made up of four rounds from June to October 2021.

The Maxxis Wormdrive AT-980E can be purchased from tyre fitters nationwide.
