Panther Tires is a company we’ve not seen or heard much from in the last few years, the company which once upon a (long) time ago threatened the likes of Pro-Line & JConcepts since faded away from the competition side of things, opting to focus on short course tyres, that might be about to change as the company have announced they have a new R&D manager – Travis Amezcua.

Despite being based in Riverside California its a rare occasion where Panther tyres are seen on the California racing scene, Panther will surely be looking to Amezcua to try and rebuilt it’s name and fortunes.

“Travis is a seasoned racing professional and we look forward to working with him in developing new tire designs for Panther.”
