KUMHO EXPANDS SPORTS RACER PARTNERSHIP
The Australian Sports Racer Series is pleased to announce that not only will Kumho Tyre once again supply the control tyre for the series in 2017, but also be on board as the naming rights sponsor for the SR2 division.
The class will now be known as the 'Kumho Class’, and if 2016 is anything to go by, is sure to host some exceptionally competitive racing across the coming season.
Kumho Tyre Australia's Rachael Sinai mentioned this was an exciting time for Kumho Tyre and its relationship with the Australian Sports Racer Series.
“Kumho Tyre have been a part of the Australian Sports Racer Series as its control tyre supplier since 2014, and it is a relationship that continues to grow,” Sinai said.
“We are very pleased that once again we will continue into the new season as the control tyre supplier for this burgeoning class which really offers something special in the Australian motor sport landscape.
“It is certainly exciting for all of us also to see our relationship expand in 2017, with the naming rights sponsorship of the SR2 Division which will now be known as the Kumho Class.
“Allowing more racers to compete for title honours and hosting some very interesting and close racing since its introduction, I can’t wait to see what the Kumho Class has in store for 2017.”
The 2017 Australian Sports Racer Series will feature five action-packed rounds, all held with the Shannons Nationals.
The first round of the series will begin at Sandown Raceway in early April.
