Since the release of the Potenza Adrenalin RE001 performance tyre in 2007 and its successor in 2011, Bridgestone’s flagship range of performance tyres have become known for their sharp, responsive handling.

The recent drive day held at RAC DTEC (Driving, Training, Education and Corporate) was part of a series of drive events held nationwide to launch Bridgestone’s new Potenza Adrenalin RE003 tyre. Drive Day attendees were able to experience firsthand the further improvements the Adrenalin RE003 delivers across the board, particularly in dry conditions. They were also given the opportunity to try out the chosen test vehicles – the Volkswagen Golf GTI and the Subaru WRX.

Bridgestone franchise owners, authorised suppliers and Bridgestone staff were invited to test the new tyre and judge its performance. They performed three manoeuvres specifically designed to demonstrate the difference between a tyre that handles well and a tyre that handles poorly. They first completed the exercise on a competitor tyre and then repeated it on the Bridgestone Potenza Adrenalin RE003. This allowed for direct comparisons between the steering response and the stability of the RE003 and the other brands. The difference was obvious and truly outstanding, with every guest ranking the RE003 higher than its competitors in all three tests.

A very successful event which clearly demonstrated the improvements of Bridgestone’s Potenza Adrenalin RE003.
