Kumho Tire develop bespoke tyre for TCR competition
21 December 2021
The WSC Group announced that Kumho Tire has developed a bespoke tyre for TCR competition.
The new tyre has been approved by WSC after the successful completion of an evaluation test that took place at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on the day after the TCR Europe’s season finale.
WSC President Marcello Lotti commented: “We are delighted that an important brand as Kumho Tire have lavished with such a big effort to embrace TCR competition. Their dedication to this new collaboration is proven by the quality of their product that was provided for the evaluation test. We have always encouraged the promoters of the different TCR-licensed series to adopt the same tyre, which can enhance the technical partnership as well as the performance on the track and makes it easier for the teams to compete in different series.”
“Kumho is happy to participate in the new partnership with the WSC Group, the TCR rights holder,” said Tony Gangseung Lee, senior vice president of Global marketing at Kumho Tire, “We will use this partnership to enhance our technology image of motor sports and brand recognition in global market.”
The new Kumho tyre is now available for the TCR promoters who wish to adopt it.
