Rated as one of the world’s three major Grand Touring events, Japan’s Super GT Championships feature some 40 teams, 19 vehicle badges, 100 drivers and 50,000 spectators per race. The two-class series GT 300 and GT 500 will have nine races this year.
“The event presents a good opportunity to showcase Hankook Tire’s technology level to the world,” said Hankook Tire Vice President Hyun-shik Cho. “We will do our best to finish in the top group and make our racing fans proud.”
Hankook said it also plans to participate in the 24 Hours of LeMans and FIA’s GT series in Europe.
