Hankook Tire doesn’t just supply tyres to the DTM touring car championship – it also awards the fastest pit stop tyre changers. BMW Team MTEK delivered the fastest tyre change times over the past season, and by doing so has won Hankook’s Best Pit Stop Award 2016. Manfred Sandbichler, Hankook Tire’s motorsport director for Europe, presented the Hankook trophy to the winning team at Team MTEK headquarters on 8 December.
Starting immediately, Hankook Tire has become exclusive tyre supplier to a Dutch racing Series. The company says its supply to the ‘Supercar Challenge powered by Hankook’, as it is known, is a long-term arrangement. The 2017 season of the Supercar Challenge begins on 14 April at Zandvoort. Races will be held on eight weekends at venues in Germany, the Netherlands, Great Britain, Belgium and Austria.
