Giti Tire to supply GitiComplete GTR1 to inaugural FIA-Certified F3 Asian Championship

The FIA F3 Asian Championship will run on the GitiCompete GTR1

Giti Tire has become the Official Tyre Partner of the F3 Asian Championship, a new five-round, 15-race series Certified by the FIA. At each event the tyre manufacturer will provide all teams with two sets of GitiCompete GTR1 tyres, part of the company’s comprehensive range of competition racing tyres which are used in events around the world.

The championship features a mix of professional and amateur drivers competing in F3 cars that conform to the FIA Formula 3 regulations. Beginning at Malaysia’s Sepang International Circuit on 13 July, the season concludes at the same venue on 23 November.

The partnership marks a continuation of the successful six-year collaboration between Giti Tire and championship organizer Top Speed Shanghai Ltd, which began in 2013 with the Formula Masters China Series.

Top Speed general manager, Davide De Gobbi said: “Giti Tire is the ideal partner for the new F3 Asian Championship Certified by FIA. The company has the resources and expertise we require to ensure performance of the highest standards, as well as a proven track record with us in Asia.”

Phang Wai Yeen, executive director, International R&D Centers for Giti Tire, added: “Motorsports serves as the ultimate proving ground where extreme speeds, manoeuvres, hazard impacts and weather uncertainties push the tires further beyond design limits for valuable data and experiences.”

“Through all our global competition partnerships – from the 24-hour Nürburgring to Fun Cup UK to Australia’s Super Truck Nationals and more – all of the findings are fed into R&D which ultimately assists in making safer and better every day driving tyres for our customers,” concluded Stefan Fischer, managing director – product technology and OE at Giti Tire Europe.
