Watch: Dunlop sends skateboarder down a mountain to launch tyre

Dunlop has released a film online to showcase its new sport tyres that depicts a daring downhill challenge between a car and a longboard.

The film shows British champion longboarder Pete Connolly riding down a mountain road in Majorca in the slipstream of racing driver Jason Plato at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour.

The film, conceived by Dunlop's PR firm Kinc, shot by content agency Viral Media House and available on Dunlop’s social media channels, highlights the ability of the sports tyres to grip the road in challenging conditions.
