Kumho Re-Ups With Mazda SCCA Series

Kumho Tire USA Inc. will continue as the official tire of the SCCA’s Mazda MX-5 Cup series for 2008.

Mazda and SCCA also announced that Playboy has signed on as title sponsor of the series, which will now be called the SCCA Pro Racing Playboy Mazda MX-5 Cup.

This will be Kumho’s second year with the series, which features similarly prepared Mazda MX-5 cars with limited modifications, each running on race-prepared Kumho Ecsta V710 DOT-approved race tires (Kumho Victoracers for wet conditions).

“We’re excited to be back with the MX-5 Cup series for 2008,” said Rudy Consolacion, Kumho’s motorsports manager. “This series features some of the closest racing in the U.S., and we’ve made some improvements to the V710 that should help make the races even tighter.” (Tire Review/Akron)
