Hankook Named Exclusive Tire Supplier of Lamborghini Super Trofeo
Hankook Tire has been named an official technical partner and exclusive tire supplier of Lamborghini Super Trofeo, the tire manufacturer announced.
The international one-make cup comprises three series, held on four continents, and will feature a new high-performance race tire developed by Hankook, the Ventus Race tire, which is specifically tailored to the Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo2 racing car. The brand-new tire will be used in Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe, North America and Asia. Hankook will also provide technical support at the racetracks, while Hankook engineers and mechanics will be on site to assist the drivers and teams.
“The partnership with Lamborghini Super Trofeo sees Hankook add a big name and three exciting series to its portfolio in international motorsport – another step that will further enhance our premium brand in 2023 and beyond,” said Sooil Lee, President and CEO of Hankook Tire & Technology.
“We are proud to be a partner of this high-class international racing series as Lamborghini celebrates its 60th anniversary and are keen to expand this cooperation over the coming years,” said Youngsoo Kim, vice president of motorsports and motor culture department at Hankook Tire. “Our newly developed Ventus Race tire, with its mono-compound, has been designed as a medium version in such a way that it is able to exploit its full potential in different temperatures on a wide range of tracks and surfaces. Our Hankook engineers and mechanics will be on hand to help and advise the drivers and teams on all four continents. I am looking forward to an exciting season and the final highlight in Vallelunga.”
“We are excited to start this new collaboration together with a technical partner as experienced and valuable as Hankook,” said Giorgio Sanna, head of Lamborghini Motorsport. “I’m sure that the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Platform is the first step in our long-term journey and one which will bring us strong results for both parties.”
