Premium tyre manufacturer Hankook will be the exclusive tyre partner to the Formula 3 Euro Series. The Monoposti in the most competitive junior racing series in Europe will enter the 2012 season on Hankook’s high-performance Ventus racing tyres. In 2011 already DTM, during which all events of the Formula 3 Euro Series are taking place, choose Hankook as their exclusive tyre partner.

"After having been chosen as the exclusive tyre partner for DTM, we are delighted to now also become the tyre partner to the most important junior series in European motorsport, the Formula 3 Euro Series." says Manfred Sandbichler, Direktor Motorsport Hankook Tire Europe. "Supporting young talent in motorsport is very important to Hankook, and we are excited to provide the young talent in the Formula 3 Euro Series with our successful Ventus race tyres. We look forward to our first joint season and wish all the teams and drivers the best of luck." adds Sandbichler.

Tyre manufacturer Hankook will benefit from synergy effects of this dual partnership. The Formula 3 Euro Series will ride on Hankook Ventus F200 racing tyres and Z206 as the rain option on the front axle respectively Z207 on the rear axle in the dimensions 180/550R13 (front) and 240/570R13 (rear). Thus, the world’s most competitive junior racing series and their talented pilots will now be provided with racing tyres of the highest quality. Hankook will benefit from their extensive experience in international formula racing: In 2002, the company has been chosen as the official tyre partner of the Italian F3 followed in 2005 by the German F3. Four years later Hankook also became the official tyre partner to the Japanese Formula 3.
