Coffman Racing Ready To Rally With Maxxis Tires

Professional race team, Coffman Racing, says its rally car will have an advantage with R19 Maxxis Tires.

SUWANEE, Ga., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Professional race team, Coffman Racing, says its rally car will have an advantage with R19 MAXXIS Tires.  Coffman Racing partner, international tire manufacturer MAXXIS Tires, is well known for its competition tires that combine durability with performance.  Coffman Racing driver, Matt Coffman, has enjoyed success in his Formula Drift Rookie Season running the MAXXIS Victra MA-Z1 drift tire.  Stage rally however, is very different.  For MAXXIS USA Marketing Specialist, Ritche Tay, Coffman Racing's upcoming use of the company's rally tires comes as no surprise.  "The Victra R19 tire is designed for the demands of rally racing," he explains, "even on the toughest stages.  That's why we know it's perfect for Coffman."

The Victra R19 has already earned its stripes as a premier rally tire.  Competing in the 2WD Rally America National Championships, Team Honda Research rode the Victra R19 to more than one B-Spec class victory this season.  Tay says it's just part of the overall Maxxis USA commitment to the sport of rally.  "We're interested in building up the drivers and the sport here in the U.S.  That's why we brought the R19 into the US market, to meet the demand for rally tires in America.  People couldn't easily get competition level rally tires stateside and we are here now just to fulfill that need."

Rally drivers familiar with the Victra R19 say the rock-deflecting shoulder blocks and reinforced sidewall design maximize sidewall puncture resistance, a definite advantage on demanding and unpredictable rally courses.  Because the R19 has a composite shoulder belt design, resistance to impacts and punctures in the tread area is also improved. Tay says Maxxis is proud to partner with veteran and rookie drivers alike.  "We're supporting Coffman in Formula Drift and it just makes sense to support him in other motorsports.  He's turning it up as a rookie in FD and we expect nothing less in rally."

Jeff Mailley, Coffman Racing Team Manager, agrees that having Maxxis bring its rally tire to the American market will impact the sport overall, adding, "Obviously our primary interest is in our driver's performance.  Rally road conditions can be so different.  We think it will be a distinct advantage to use the R19 and we're looking forward to seeing what happens."

Enterprises are universally struggling to understand where the new tools and methodologies of DevOps fit into their organizations, and are universally making the same mistakes. These mistakes are not unavoidable, and in fact, avoiding them gifts an organization with sustained competitive advantage, just like it did for Japanese Manufacturing Post WWII.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
