Hankook brand ambassador Benoît Tréluyer visits the principality

Three-time Le Mans winner and Hankook brand ambassador Benoît Tréluyer, who was heavily involved in the development of the Hankook iON Race, was also at the circuit in Monaco to check out the performance of the Hankook iON Race for himself. “The atmosphere in Monaco is always very good and it is a pleasure for everyone to be here. Many drivers live here and I think it feels strange for many of them to be racing where they usually go to buy their croissants and pain au chocolat. The new Gen3 Evo is class. I like the design of the car. It has more downforce and the new, optimised Hankook iON Race provides even better grip. That will change the strategy of most teams a little. I expect a very interesting Season 11.”

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.
