New world record on the Hankook iON Race / Voucher for Jake Hughes

218.71 km/h – faster than any car had ever travelled indoors. In the run-up to the Hankook London E-Prix, Briton Jake Hughes smashed the previous indoor land speed record by over 50 km/h at the wheel of a Gen3 car named the GENBETA, which had been modified by Formula E partners Hankook and SABIC, among others. As such, Formula E and Hankook now take their place in the Guinness Book of Records. Manfred Sandbichler (Hankook Director Motorsport) and Felix Kinzer (Hankook Communications Director) congratulated Jake Hughes personally and presented the 29-year-old with a voucher for a set of Hankook iON road tyres for his electric car.

For decades, Hankook has been one of the first ports of call when it comes to international motorsport. Hankook supplies its race tyres to globally-renowned series, high-class junior formats and popular grassroot events. With new collaborations and partnerships, the company is constantly enhancing its status as a global player on the motorsport scene. Since the 2023 season, Hankook has been the new and exclusive technical partner and tyre supplier of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. In close cooperation with Formula E, the iON Race was developed for the world championship. Roughly 30 percent of the high-performance tyre is made of sustainable materials. With this commitment, Hankook is taking another pioneering step towards energy efficiency and sustainability in motorsport. The premium tyre maker has also agreed a further collaboration with Italian sports car manufacturer Lamborghini Squadra Corse and has been official technical partner and exclusive tyre supplier of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo since 2023. Hankook’s portfolio covers a broad spectrum. This includes the 24H Series powered by Hankook, one of the most prestigious endurance series in the world, as well as the FIA ERC4 Junior Championship on the rally scene. Hankook also supports popular touring car championship TCR Italy, many high-class one-make cups for a wide range of renowned manufacturers, junior single-seater series, and assorted international racing events with race tyres and technical know-how.
