No panic over fire at Bridgestone

A large fire at a Bridgestone plant in Japan will not have any effect on the racing tires. Bridgestone has nine production facilities in Japan including the Kuroiso factory which caught fire on Monday. The factory builds radial tires for trucks, buses, passenger cars and mass transit systems.

The racing tires are designed at the Kodaira plant in Tokyo although some of the production is at the Kurume factory in Fukuoka.
