The tyre manufacturer will supply each of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo championships from 2023
Lamborghini Squadra Corse is pleased to announce that Hankook will become the official tyre supplier for all three continental one-make Super Trofeo championship from 2023.
The premium tyre manufacturer has developed a high-grip medium compound race tyre, the Hankook Ventus Race, designed and constructed specifically for the Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2. The tyres will be used across all three continental championships: Europe, North America and Asia.
As part of the new deal, a dedicated “Hankook village” will travel to every Super Trofeo race meeting this season, providing technical support to all three championships.
Hankook is one of the biggest tyre suppliers in motorsport and has been affiliated with the FIA Formula E World Championship since the start of the 2022-23 season. It has equally been present across a broad spectrum of racing categories, including 24H Series, ADAC TCR Germany and TCR Italy as well as the Junior European Rally Championship.
Speaking about the partnership, Lamborghini’s Head of Motorsport Giorgio Sanna said: “We are delighted to announce this new partnership between Lamborghini Squadra Corse and Hankook for the coming season of Super Trofeo. Their experience and expertise in supplying the highest-quality tyres across a wide range of championships and categories is unrivalled and we are looking forward to working closely together this season. Of course, we are especially looking forward to hosting a rather special round of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia season, at a new venue in South Korea which will be a hugely significant weekend for our new partners to showcase the joint commitment between Hankook and Lamborghini Squadra Corse.”
“The partnership with Lamborghini Super Trofeo sees Hankook add a big name and three exciting series to its portfolio in international motorsport – another step that will further enhance our premium brand in 2023 and beyond,” said Sanghoon Lee, President of Hankook Tire Europe.
Hankook Motorsport Director Europa, Manfred Sandbichler: “We are proud to be a partner of this high-class international racing series as Lamborghini celebrates its 60th anniversary and are keen to expand this cooperation over the coming years. Our newly developed Ventus Race tyre, with its mono-compound, has been designed as a medium version in such a way that it is able to exploit its full potential in different temperatures on a wide range of tracks and surfaces. Our Hankook engineers and mechanics will be on hand to help and advise the drivers and teams on all four continents. I am looking forward to an exciting season and the final highlight in Vallelunga.”
