Hankook Farnbacher Racing Team kicks off new endurance racing series

April 4, 2011

As in the previous two years, the drivers will be Allan Simonsen (DK) und Dominik Farnbacher (D), strengthening the cooperation between the tyre producer and Team Farnbacher Racing once more. The new Ferrari, which has the number 89 like its predecessor, will also sport the typical Hankook Design.

This season, the car is equipped with modified Hankook Slicks Ventus F200, Ventus Z207 rain tyres and, if necessary, custom-made intermediates in the sizes 300/660 R18 in the front axle and 320/710 R18 in the rear.The new additions should help the team to continue the previous successes.

“In the past years we have always scored very good results. I am also very confident regarding the upcoming season with our new Ferrari F458 GT and the improved Hankook tyres, which we have already tried out during some tests”, says team leader Horst Farnbacher.

"We’re looking forward to continue the long and successful collaboration with Horst Farnbacher and his racing team in 2011 as well”, says Manfred Sandbichler, Director Motorsport at Hankook Tire Europe. “Our tyres were developed to meet new standards and were fitted to the new car, for which I would like to compliment our development engineers. We are eagerly looking forward to the season 2011.”
