Hankook Tire America Corp. has teamed up with Primetime Race Group. As part of the agreement, Hankook will serve as the team's official tire supplier for competition in the American Le Mans Series.

The tire development and supply agreement includes equipping the team's Dodge Viper with Hankook Ventus F200 racing tires.

"They are an excellent fit for our race tire development program, and we believe that together we can reach the ultimate goal of getting the team on the podium," says Bill Bainbridge, Hankook's director of brand communication.

Team drivers Joel Feinberg and Chris Hall pilot the Number 11 Dodge Viper Competition Coupe in the GT2 class of the series. They fully tested several specifications of Hankook race tires at Roebling Road Raceway in Savannah recently.

Feinberg is also Primetime Race Group's owner. "We race on Hankook tires in IMSA Lites (Hankook is the official tire supplier of the IMSA Lites series), and we knew that they have had success in a number of other forms of motorsports," he says. "Last week's test session was a fantastic reinforcement of our decision to partner with Hankook."
