For the second year, Hankook Tire will be the exclusive tire supplier for the Formula Renault Eurocup, during the 2020 season that is already underway.
The Formula Renault Eurocup delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, celebrates its 50th season this year. Starting with the season-opening in Italy, the ten competing teams of this championship will use their Hankook tires to the fullest at nine racing weekends.
The season finale is scheduled for the end of November.
“We look forward to this year’s season and are excited to see some of the most promising race drivers compete on our tires,” says James Kim, Vice President of Motorsports Marketing at Hankook Tire.
Hankook’s Ventus tires
All vehicles of the series will be fitted with Hankook’s high-performing racing tires, Ventus F200 and Ventus Z217. Ventus F200 is a dry surface slick racing tire with excellent grip, handling performance, and durability, while Ventus Z217 is a highly stable wet surface racing tire.
The tires supplied to Formula Renault were newly developed in 2019 and are larger in size with greater durability and improved grip.
Hankook continues to prioritize and invest in research, technology, and development, to provide the superior technology essential for tires of racing Formula vehicles, where speed is a priority.
Hankook is recognized around the world for its high-quality tires and earned additional acknowledgment as an official sponsor of the Formula Renault Eurocup, a competition venue for young racers with promising careers—a competition well known as the driver training centre for the Formula One (F1) Championship since 1971.
Hankook Tire actively participates in various global motorsports events as a premium performance tire supplier. The company is also taking initiative in a wide range of activities to help develop motorsports culture around the world.
Recently, Hankook was selected by the FIA as the future Gen3 tire and technology partner for the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.
