Kumho puts new race tire to the test

April 2, 2007

Kumho Tire U.S.A. Inc.'s new LMP1 race tire debuted this past weekend at the Acura Sports Car Challenge of St. Petersburg (Fla).

"Our LMP1 tire program just came to life about six weeks ago," says Kumho Motorsports Manager Rudy Consolacion. "We haven't even had a chance to test them yet. The St. Pete race was the first time the tires have been run."
