Hankook has confirmed that it will continue as the exclusive supplier to the FIA Formula 3 European Championship in 2014. The manufacturer will provide its Ventus brand tyres to competitors in 33 races over 11 weekends, supporting such series as the Hankook-supplied DTM. The season began at Silverstone with 30 drivers competing for 12 teams.
2014 marks touring car series DTM’s 30th anniversary, and exclusive tyre supplier Hankook will again equip teams with two models of Ventus racing tyre. The Korean manufacturer says that enhanced vehicles and new regulations promise great excitement, while new races in Hungary and China add new challenges for participants. Each car will use both tyres, with a single pit stop, meaning the softer Ventus Race Plus can only be used for a maximum of half the racing distance. Hankook has completed its winter testing programme for the series and is satisfied by the results.
