Formula E presents new charity project “Better Futures Fund”

Formula E presented a new charity programme at the Berlin E-Prix. The “Better Futures Fund“ supports charity organisations and local projects in cities hosting Formula E races. The money will primarily be made available to long-term initiatives with ecological and social impacts. For the rest of the current season, a fund of 100,000 dollars will be divided between the four cities Berlin, Shanghai, Portland and London. In Season 11, the fund will help separate charity organisations at all race venues all over the world. Hankook took the same approach last year, when it supported local and non-profit organisations under the motto “A pretty good thing”.

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: in total, Hankook is actively involved in more than 50 series in 2023. Since Season 9, 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’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, popular touring car championships ADAC TCR Germany and TCR Italy, many high-class one-make cups for a wide range of renowned manufacturers, junior single-seater series, and assorted international racing events.
