Yokohama supports America at the races

Sept. 26, 2001

Yokohama Tire Corp. is showing its support for the victims, their families and the American public affected by the terrorist attacks September 11.

Yokohama–sponsored race team PTG BMW will be sporting a new look for the Petit LeMans-ALMS in October. All three BMW race cars have been re-painted red, white and blue to honor the victims, their families and those who have participated in the recovery effort.

"We hope this company-wide effort will help us all participate in the healing and recovery process facing our nation," says Koji Ikawa, president of Yokohama Tire Corp. "The unified efforts of corporations throughout our country will continue to help us move toward the future with a renewed sense of strength and hope."

In addition, Yokohama and its employees also made a donation to the American Red Cross Relief Fund.
