Turán Frigyes wins Taxi4 Mikulás Rallye 2020 on Hankook tires
- Records the fastest time in four out of six runs, including the Special Stage
- Demonstrates Hankook tires' performance enabled by advanced technology
Seoul, Korea, December 9, 2020 – Turán Frigyes, equipped with rally tires from global leading tire maker Hankook Tire, won the Taxi4 Mikulás Rallye 2020’s RC2 Class, which is the final match of the Hungarian Rally in Veszprém, Hungary, held from December 5 to 6.
Held under extreme driving conditions, a rally is a type of motorsports competition where participants finish an intensely challenging course in various environments. The agility and durability of tires that can instantly respond to rapid road changes is critical as the participants drive for a long time on diverse road surfaces instead of dedicated racing circuits.
During the rally, Turán Frigyes recorded the fastest time in four out of six runs, including the Special Stage. During the challenging run where 14 out of 63 participating vehicles retired due to the tough course, Hankook's rally tires with strong durability and anti-puncture functions paved the road for victory.
Having won the final round of the European Rally Championship as well as the STEELVENT SALGÓ Rally 2020, Turán Frigyes once again took the first place in a renowned rally competition on Hankook tires, demonstrating the tires' performance made possible through advanced technology.
Supplying racing tires to over 50 global motorsports competitions or teams around the world, Hankook is leading the development of the global motorsports culture. Hankook has been supplying race tires to global motorsports events such as German Touring Car Masters (DTM), 24H Series and F3 Americas. In addition, Hankook was recently selected as the exclusive supplier to the “ABB FIA Formula E World Series” from the 2022/23 season when the Gen3 racing cars will be introduced to the world’s most prestigious electric vehicle racing competition.
