Jota Sport took pole position on the LMP2 class podium at the four hours of Shanghai race in the FIA WEC 2019/2020 season. Not to be outdone, sister team Jackie Chan Racing, also running Goodyear tyres took second place on the podium – creating a one-two win for Goodyear tyres. The triumph made history, marking the first Goodyear win in a World Championship race since Michael Schumacher and Ferrari in the 1998 Italian Grand Prix.
Mike McGregor, Goodyear Manager, Race Sales, Testing & Track Support, said: 'It’s been a tremendous multinational team effort to bring Goodyear back to international motorsport. After our podium in our second race last month at Fuji, it’s brilliant to build on that with a one-two. Thanks to our partners at Jota Sport for giving us the opportunity to partner with them in our first year back at World Championship level. We have more developments coming later this season but, in the meantime, we will celebrate this historic win.'
