ERJ staff report (DS)
Yorkshire, UK -- A team of farmers and milk inspectors is setting off today to drive from Huddersfield to drive across Russia to the Bering Straits and then down to the Cape Horn at the southerly tip of South America. Their tyres are provided by Cooper Tires UK and a range of tyre sealants from TyreSeal.
The team, led by Yorkshire farmer Steve Burgess, will use a highly modified Land Rover fitted with amphibious options and track options to drive the route, which covers open water, tundra, rainforest and everything in between.
Burgess said, "Cooper Tires are a welcome supporter of Cape to Cape Expedition. Of the many tyres we considered to help us complete this arduous journey heavy duty 10 ply Cooper Discovery ST were considered to be most suitable. With a 40/60 off-road bias, wear, and durability on highways, was considered as well as traction and off-road capability."
He added, "TyreSeal's unique tyre sealant will be helping to reduce our puncture risk throughout the expedition. There is no such thing as a convenient time to have a puncture so reducing the risk to an absolute minimum will be of tremendous benefit."
