Strap on your racing helmet and get ready to experience driving excitement “Kumho style” at Speedfest at the 2010 Classic/Grassroots Motorsports Mitty Challenge.  Kumho Tire USA will once again be an Associate Sponsor at the 2010 Mitty, the annual celebration of all things automotive, to be held April 30th to May 2nd at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia.  The Kumho autocross will give spectators a chance to drive a Kumho shod Mazda MX-5 convertible around the infield autocross course full of tight corners and adrenaline inducing straight-aways.  The driving experience will be completely free of charge and will give spectators the perfect change to experience Kumho tires in a race-like environment.


Widely known and appreciated as one of the largest Historic Race Car events in the U.S., this year’s Mitty promises to be the best and biggest one yet offering historically significant race cars from all racing associations.  “Kumho Tire is proud to be a sponsor once again of the Mitty.  The Kumho brand was built with the passion of car and motorsports enthusiasts alike and this event is the perfect venue to meet these Kumho enthusiasts face to face and have them experience Kumho tires in an autocross setting.” said Rick Brennan, Kumho Tire USA’s VP of Marketing.


This will be the 4th consecutive year that Kumho Tire USA has partnered with Grassroots/Classic Motorsports Magazine to participate in the Walter Mitty event.  Over the past four years, over 2,400 consumers have experienced driving on Kumho tires.  “Each year we provide consumers the opportunity to drive on our newest products” stated Brennan.  This year the all-new Ecsta LE Sport UHP max performance tire will be highlighted at the Kumho autocross.  Due to launch in mid-summer, this will be the first appearance of the Ecsta LE Sport in the U.S. market.
