Continental takes safety award

The Continental ContiSportContact 3 tyre has scooped Fast Car magazine`s Best for Safety category award.

The Fast Car Awards promote the best in the tuning industry and show the top must-have products.

They highlight the best in terms of quality, performance, desirability, originality and value and the awards in the modified sector are seen as a stamp of approval among motorists.

Fast Car said: "Safe is the name of the game with Continental Tyres and their wet weather performance is the absolute best."

"The ContiSportContact 3 tyre is focused on serving up awesome handling for powerful performance cars. We like Continental tyres a lot."

Scott Benbow, product manager at Continental, said the ContiSportContact 3 has won awards in the past and they were pleased to add the Fast Car award to the collection.

He added: "Safety is always our main focus when designing a tyre so to be recognised specifically for this is great."

Fact Car said: "The Fast Car Awards reward companies that keep investing to develop ever better products, driving both quality and value for the consumer. We're chuffed that Continental is happy with their award, they've earned it."
