With the end of the 2019 motorsport year approaching fast, Hankook has entered into another partnership with a promising new racing series. The premium tyre maker will supply the new DTM Trophy with the high-end Ventus Race tyre and provide on-site support as of the 2020 season. Those responsible at Hankook have agreed a four-year contract with DTM umbrella organisation ITR, which will promote the new GT series. The new race format will feature on the support programme at seven rounds of the DTM, which is arguably the most popular international touring car series, and which Hankook has supported as exclusive tyre partner since 2011.
Fast and safe on Hankook tyres - the ABT RS4-R is the new "TUNE IT! SAFE!" campaign vehicle for 2020
On the press day of the Essen Motor Show 2019, the latest campaign vehicle of the TUNE IT! SAFE! Initiative is unveiled in the traditional police car design, supported by the BMVI alongside partner and main sponsor Hankook. The RS4-R, further developed by ABT Sportsline, is based on the recently developed model-maintained Audi RS 4 Avant and rolls into the new decade on the latest ultra-high performance Ventus S1 evo 3 tyres in the 20-inch dimension. The unveiling of the vehicle took place on the press day together with TUNE IT! SAFE! Since 2005, the founding year of the initiative, Hankook has been the exclusive tyre partner for safe and legal tuning.
