Hankook Tire kick-off the 2013 race season together with the Superstars and GT Sprint International Series this weekend in Monza, Italy.
The tyre manufacturer, exclusive tyre supplier to both series since 2012, has recently extended the tyre partnership with race organiser, Superstar World (SWD).
Drivers will be revving up at the starting line on Hankook’s high-capacity Ventus Race tyres, supplied as slick (F200) and rain options (Z207) to both series. To meet the various specifications of the broad range of manufacturers on the grid, the Hankook Ventus Race are available in size 260/660/18 for the Superstars and in 10 different sizes as 18 and 19 inch versions in the GT Sprint Series.
The characteristics of the cars and circuits raced in these events are highly demanding for the tyres. Due to the heavy weight of the cars and challenging racing conditions, the tyres are subject to high levels of mechanical and thermal stress – ranging from extremely hot temperatures on the track to highly aggressive kerbs.
The combination of ultra-high-performance tyres, V8-powered cars and highly professional drivers promises a thrilling season start for fans.
