Hankook Tyre supports motorsports events and competitions globally and encourages drivers to pursue their passion. By being the exclusive and official tyre sponsor to the Supercar Fest 2019, Hankook Tyre will be showcasing their advanced technology and innovative motorsports expertise.
Hankook sponsors new supercar event held at the oldest motorsport venue in the world
Supercar Fest 2019 is held at Shelsley Walsh, which hosted its first motorsport event in 1905 and has run continuously ever since. Set in the glorious quintessential Worcestershire countryside, the track remains in almost exactly the same configuration as the day it started and we can think of no better venue to showcase Hankook Tyre’s advanced technology and innovative motorsports expertise. Throughout this festival, there will be a range of events attended by up to 5000 spectators, such as the Supercar Paddock, a variety of demos & car displays, Classic & Sports Car Shows and Car Clubs.
Hankook Tyre UK will be supporting this event in many ways, including a stand manned with Hankook representatives on hand to meet and greet the visitors, as well as information on our tyres and giveaways. Hankook will be showcasing the –impressively superior and new for 2019- Ventus S1 evo 3. Hankook are proud to premier this new tyre, known for its powerful performance and superior handling for luxury vehicles, at one of Britain’s most historic and well known motoring venues.
Supercar Paddock & Demos
150 of the finest supercars, hypercars and classics will be selected to be displayed in the famous Shelsley Walsh garages. Hankook will have unrestricted access to the Supercar Paddock where you can get up close and personal with the cars and meet their owners.
Classic & Sports Car Shows
One of the highlights at Supercar Fest will be the Concours. Where a selection of post war classic and sports cars will be displayed at the oldest motorsport venue in the world, filled with automotive heritage. Anyone owning such a car can enter for £30 which includes two general entrance tickets.
The famous Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb
Throughout the day there will be non-stop action on the hill. All the cars on display in the Supercar Paddock will be taking part in a number of demo runs and parades. Spectators will watch and hear these incredible cars in action on the track as they accelerate up the hill. Visitors can spectate from a number of grandstands or choose to be right on the start line and smell the rubber burning!
On the Track
Supercar Fest will be inviting a number of very special cars from the motorsport world to take part in some exhilarating demo runs up the hill. In among the Racing Cars and Rally Cars, Hankook will also proudly display the BMW DTM Car on the Hankook stand, allowing the visitors a true insight into Hankook's global motoring presence.
