Hankook is title sponsor of the E-Prix in Mexico, Rome and the season finale in London

Hankook is not only the official technical partner and tyre supplier of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, but also the title sponsor of three very special rounds in 2023. The long-awaited start of the new season is on 14th January 2023 and is now officially called the Hankook Mexico City E-Prix. It is here that the Hankook iON Race – the new tyre for the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship – will make its race debut. In the future, all 22 drivers will line up on the new premium race tyre from Hankook. Hankook is also title sponsor of the final four races of Season 9. First up is the double-header in the Italian capital Rome, the Hankook Rome E-Prix from 15th to 16th July. This is followed just 14 days later by the season finale in London. After races 15 and 16 at the Hankook London E-Prix, the new champion of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will be crowned. Sooil Lee, President and CEO of Hankook Tire & Technology: “We are extremely proud to be title sponsor of three very high-profile rounds of the coming Formula E season. Experience shows that the public watches the season-opener and the finale particularly closely. We are also putting our name to the double-header in Rome, where it is possible that the destination of the title could be decided.”

Jamie Reigle, CEO, Formula E: “As new Technical Partner of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, Hankook Tire is hitting the road hard as title sponsor at three of our most iconic race events. Starting in Mexico City, fans will see the Gen3 race car in action for the first time incorporating the pioneering tyre technology of Hankook Tire. With high-performance and sustainability central to the production of the latest EV race tyres, fans can expect even closer and more dramatic wheel to wheel racing on all of our city centre circuits.”

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.
