Yokohama returns to SCCA as contingency sponsor
Yokohama Tire Corporation is returning
to the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) as a contingency sponsor for
the 2010 Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Tour and Solo National
Championships. Yokohama's ADVAN Neova AD08 ultra high-performance
tire is now eligible for the SCCA's contingency program for the series
"It's great to be back with the SCCA," said Duane Sampson, Yokohama
brand manager. "The drivers that compete in the Tire Rack SCCA Solo
National Tour and Solo National Championships definitely know,
understand and appreciate ultra high-performance tires like the Neova
AD08. This is an excellent place to showcase the capability of the tire
and support grassroots motorsports."
The 10-event "Road to Lincoln" series (including the National
Championships), kicks-off March 13 with the Dixie National Tour at South
Georgia Motorsports Park in Adel, Georgia. The National Championships
are in Lincoln, Nebraska on September 8 at Lincoln Airport.
"Solo" racing is SCCA's brand name for autocross competition. Solo
events are driving skill contests that emphasize the driver's ability
and the car's handling characteristics by driving a course that is
designated by traffic cones on a low-hazard location, such as a parking
lot or inactive airstrip. The events attract a full range of imported
and domestic sports cars, sedans and purpose-built race cars.
