A victorious season for Hankook racing tyres

Hankook and the Recaro Formula-3-Cup prove themselves to be ideal partners

Neu-Isenburg, October 4th 2006. Two victors were already certain before the end of the Recaro Formula-3-Cup season last weekend in Oschersleben.
These were on the one hand the overall champion for the year 2006 Ho-Pin Tung, and one the other the exclusive tyre supplier Hankoo k. The latter had equipped all the vehicles competing in all the races with the appropriate slicks or rain-weather tyres. The universal commentary of the drivers: great performance, wonderful partner!

A particular highlight for both teams and spectators in this season also was the “Oval-race” at the EuroSpeedway Lausitz (29. /30.07.). Here already Ho-Pin Tung, a Chinese resident in the Netherlands, had his nose in front in the struggle for victory.
In his Lola B06-30 Opel-Spiess he was able to achieve an unassailable lead after the race on the Salzburgring in mid- September. The Hankook tyres used in the Recaro Formula-3-Cup offered a perfect performance throughout the entire season, on all racetracks.
They distinguished themselves through a very high degree of stability under extreme condition
s. Whether in temperatures of more than thirty degrees or cool, rainy weather, Hankook
supplied the teams at all times with the suitable tyres. Hankook was in 2006 for the second time the tyre partner for the Recaro Formel-3-Cup.
