The Hankook Ventus RS4 will be the spec tire for the California-based wheel-to-wheel racing series.
Los Angeles, CA — Speed Ventures, Inc. is pleased to announce that Hankook Motorsports will be the official tire sponsor of SuperSpec Cup for 2020, with Hankook providing the spec tire for the series: the Hankook Ventus RS4 (size 225/45/15).
With the move, SuperSpec Cup (previously Supermiata) continues to sharpen the formula for low-cost, competitive amateur racing, and Hankook broadens its support for grassroots motorsports.
“We’re very excited to have Hankook on board in 2020. The low cost, long lifecycle, and proven performance of the RS4 fits perfectly with our goal of keeping expenses down—and competition up—for our drivers.” - Aaron Bitterman, CEO of Speed Ventures, Director SuperSpec Cup
The Speed Ventures team will work with Hankook Motorsports CEO Danny van Dongen to provide fresh rubber to SuperSpec Cup competitors at a special competition price. The tire was selected from among several tire options based on lifecycle cost, durability, and speed.
“Affordable, long-lasting tires is perhaps the single most important way we can keep costs down for SuperSpec drivers,” Bitterman explains. “We’re happy Danny and Hankook share our vision, and we’re all looking forward to a great race season in 2020.”
The first round of SuperSpec Cup 2020 competition is January 25-26 at Buttonwillow Raceway Park.
