The Hankook iON Race is faster than ever – new record times at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia

Hankook and its premium product, the Hankook iON Race, have enjoyed a good start to Season 10 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. During the official test days in Valencia, Spain, the times set at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo were significantly better than in Hankook’s maiden year. “The teams have had a whole season to get used to the new Formula E tyres and gain experience. The findings are paying off now. The drivers and their crews are now even more aware of how to get the maximum performance out of the Hankook iON Race,” explains Hankook’s Motorsport Director Manfred Sandbichler.

Felix Kinzer, Hankook’s Director of Communications, is also eagerly awaiting the first race in Mexico on 13th January of next year: “We are really looking forward to our second season in Formula E. Our tyre fulfilled all the specifications we were given by Formula E in Season 9 and provided the perfect support for the drivers as they chased the best times. Whether in hot, cold, dry, or wet conditions, the Hankook iON Race is characterised by a high level of consistency and grip. And we will be entering our second Formula E season with this same high level of commitment to quality.”

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.
