Hankook wins major race sponsor deals through 2021

Nov 28,2018
Hankook Tire, the world’s seventh-biggest tiremaker by sales, said on Tuesday that it will exclusively supply tires to the Formula 4 United States Championship and the F3 Americas Championship for three years.

In a deal with SCCA Pro Racing, the sanctioning body behind the two championships, Hankook Tire will supply racing tires to the championships from 2019 to 2021, the company said in a statement.

Being selected as an exclusive tire supplier to the races means the durability and performance of the company’s products will be showcased during the highly competitive events, it said.

In the deal, the company will not only deliver tires to the F4 U.S. and F3 Americas race teams, but it will also provide marketing services to drivers and the teams.
