Hankook has been named as the control tyre supplier for Australia’s all-new Extreme Rallycross Championship. The tyre manufacturer has been signed for three years as the official tyre supplier for the championship. Hankook will supply 17-inch Ventus rally tyre for the event that will be used across all three Extreme Rallycross Series class – Supercar Lite, Four-wheel-drive turbo and Two-wheel-drive naturally aspirated.

Called the Sidchrome Extreme Rallycross Championship, the event is part of CAMS (Confederation of Australian Motor Sport) and will see participation from supercars and locally-built cars. Hankook was chosen as the official tyre supplier after its Ventus tyres were evaluated by the organizers.

Speaking on the occasion, Dean Evans, Hankook Tyre Australia’s motorsport manager, said, “This is the kind of spectacle Australian motorsport needs. Rallycross is undoubtedly the next big thing in global motorsport and now that we have an Australian version, Hankook wanted to be a part of it from the start – and we had the right tyre to support it.”

“Hankook Australia worked closely with Extreme Rallycross to determine what they were trying to achieve with regards to grip and the show. With feedback from Alister McRae and Chris Atkinson during the test day in May, Hankook chose a size, pattern and compound of tyre that offered the best balance between grip, cost and durability, and assuring a safe and reliable tyre for the Extreme Rallycross Championship.”

Running in its first season this year, the Australian Rallycross will kick off its inaugural seven-round season at Lakeside in Queensland, Australia in September 2015.
