Taipei, Taiwan – Sponsored by Nankang Tire, Japanese driver Yokoi Masashi became the 2013 MSC Challenge champion. As one of the popular motor sport events in Japan, MSC Challenge is composed of 10 competitions and the final championship was held 18 January this year.
Yokoi, using Nankang’s compound NS-2R, praised the tires performance and great handling.
Nankang has continued its sponsorship with the MSC Challenge for more than three years.
According to SpeedHunters.com: “Since MSC is a grassroots level series filled with privateer drivers, you have to look at the MSC cars from a different viewpoint than [the professional levels].
“MSC events are held in all corners of Japan – from Kyushu in the south to Hokkaido in the north, so few or no drivers compete in every event. Because of this, you also get a wide variety of cars depending on the region the event is being held in.”
