Hankook Becomes US Touring Car Championship Sponsor
Hankook Tire America Corp has signed a three-year agreement making Hankook the official sponsor of the Hankook US Touring Car Championship (USTCC) race series until the end of 2007. According to a Tire Review report, under the agreement, Hankook’s Ventus RSS Z211 R-Compound racing tyres will be the control tyres for the 2005-series racing event. In addition, the tyre company’s logo will be prominently displayed at each racing venue and on competitors’ vehicles.
“Hankook is dedicated to expanding our motorsports activities, both as a demonstration of our technology, as well as our brand-building marketing campaign,” said Choi. “We look forward to a productive relationship with the USTCC — and to excellent competition over the next three years,” commented J W Choi, president and CEO of Hankook.
