The Citroën Top Driver series kicked off with the Rally de Portugal last week where Bryan Bouffler and Xavier Panseri took the win. Three days of gruelling gravel stages took their toll on drivers and vehicles alike as the competition continued.

Tyre wear is always a major factor in the demanding conditions of Portugal. The combination of gravel, open roads and high temperatures all combine to push tyres to the very limit of their performance. Wear rates were reported to be up to 40 percent higher than other gravel rallies this year.

To meet the demands of this year's competition, Pirelli supplied it's Scorpion K tyre in medium(K4) and hard (K2) compounds. The Scorpion K is designed to provide the high levels of durability needed for such punishing rocky roads, without compromising overall performance.
