More experience with the Hankook iON Race for the rookies on the Monday

The Formula E “youngsters” have already been out on the track once this season, and now comes another opportunity: after the free practice for the rookies in Misano, selected drivers who have yet to contest an E-Prix will be able to spend an entire day testing the Gen3 Formula E cars and the Hankook iON Race. The drivers will have two three-hour sessions to familiarise themselves with the car and get the Hankook iON Race into the optimal working window, in order to unleash the full performance of the premium tyre. “The Rookie Test is a really fantastic opportunity for drivers to gain an intense impression of the car and our tyres. The Hankook team will be on hand to offer plenty of support and provide reference data,” says Manfred Sandbichler, Hankook Motorsport 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.
