Following over 20  years out of the spotlight, AVON returned to motorsport with a bang in 1981, producing a large range of tyres for many different formulae, even supplying tyres to Grand Prix teams in their first season of manufacturing. AVON's commitment to continual investment and development has resulted in phenomenal success in car racing and also has produced World Champions in areas as diverse as Sidecar Racing and Rallycross! 

AVON's reputation for quality, consistency and innovation has resulted in the company being the leader in control tyre supply - AVON have held the contract to provide tyres to F3000 for over a decade, and also supplying the British F3 championship from 1983. 

Historic motorsport is very important to AVON, many new tyres have been developed over the years to meet the demands of competitors in this prestigious area. 

An enthusiastic dealer network makes AVON a truly global player, and the purchase of the company in the mid 1990's by the COOPER TIRE Company, one of the worlds largest tyre manufactures, has considerably strengthened AVON's position.
