ERJ staff report (LMH)
Neu-Isenburg, Germany - Premium tyre manufacturer Hankook says it will exclusively supply its line of competition tyres, Ventus Race, to the 2012 City Challenge Baku.
The motor racing event will take place in the Azerbaijanian capital, 26-28 Oct. Hankook will supply its high-performance competition tyres to all 24 cars competing in various GT categories.
City Challenge races are a spectacular urban motorsport experience, providing teams and drivers with the possibility to race on temporary circuits that place special demands on the participating teams, drivers, engineers and tyres, Hankook said.
â€œBeing able to trust the tyres is a key factor in motor racing, particularly as the pilots that will be racing in Baku face the challenge of racing on a unique, unknown and temporary city concourse,â€ explained Manfred Sandbichler, director motorsport at Hankook Tire Europe.
