Pirelli tyre problems?

From Hong Kong Le Mans Team's Matthew Marsh: "We had three punctures throughout the weekend and other cars with Pirelli tyres had the same problem," said Marsh. "In contrast, the winners in our class were on Dunlops. I’m sure this is something Pirelli will be looking at between now and Silverstone."

GruppeM Racing runs with Michelin tyres in FIA GT, how come they are on Pirellis for LMES?

The Auorlando Porsche runs on Pirellis too.
Last year Michelin told their teams that they donīt have the capacity to produce tyres for the LMES GT2 category. Thatīs the reason why GruppeM use Pirellis in LMES.

Svierge has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!

You'd think that GruppeM would have used Dunlops in LMES - they have experience of them and they're undoubtedly superior tyres to the Pirellis. Pirelli does some very good deals though...
