The Formula E race tyre catches the eye again in Italy

As at the season-opener in Mexico City and the race in Monaco, Hankook treated the Italian fans to the iON Race with colourful tread grooves in the company colours of orange and iON Blue. The eye-catching tyres will be in action again at the season finale, the Hankook London E-Prix in two weeks. “We are delighted that the colourful accents on our Hankook iON Race, which symbolise performance and energy efficiency, are so well received by the fans, drivers and teams every time they make an appearance,” said Felix Kinzer, Hankook’s Communications Director.

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.
