New CEO for Formula E

From 5th June, English businessman Jeff Dodds will take over from the current Formula E boss Jamie Reigle, who has led the series since September 2019 and will take on an advisory role until the end of the current season. Jeff Dodds comes from British telecommunications company Virgin Media O2. “Formula E is a unique platform, which combines cutting-edge technology with the most sustainable racing in the world and also offers endless potential for innovations and positive changes. There is a world-class team in Formula E and I am looking forward to leading it into the next chapter, as we shape the future of motorsport and redefine what is possible,” said Dodds.

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.
