Hankook Equipping The Teams And Drivers Of The DTM Again This Season


In 2014, Hankook will again be equipping the teams and drivers of the DTM, the most popular touring car series, exclusively with its Ventus racing tires. In the anniversary year, in which the DTM is celebrating 30 years of racing, enhanced vehicles and new regulations promise great excitement. With just one pit stop the softer and faster tire option can only be used for a maximum of half the racing distance. Especially in the Ventus Race Plus, recognizable by the yellow Hankook lettering, demanding maximum performance from the tires over a limited time period is a deciding factor for success. After the first tests during the winter months, the DTM team and engineers were extremely satisfied and are looking forward to the new season.

Total Renews Title Sponsorship Of The Total 24 Hours Of Spa

Nogaro Blancpain Sprint Series Preview


Just one week after the season-opener of the Blancpain Endurance in Monza, it is now time for the sister GT Series, the Blancpain Sprint to kick-off. The traditional season-opener takes place at the Circuit Paul Armagnac in Nogaro, South-West France, in an event that is very appropriately labelled ‘Coupes de Pâques’, as races take place on the Sunday and Monday of Easter’s weekend. This is definitely a place where the Belgian Audi Club Team WRT returns with pleasure, as the squad has very fond memories there, having collected no less than three double wins out of the four races in the last two years! To keep that form will be difficult, but the entire team is determined to shine and encouraged by the competitiveness shown by the Audis R8 LMS ultra at Monza only a few days ago. Team WRT starts the season taking up the challenge of preparing four cars. The three machines of the Belgian Audi Club are entrusted to Laurens Vanthoor - César Ramos and René Rast - Enzo Ide, who compete in the Gold Cup, and to the duo of young guns composed by Vincent Abril and Mateusz Lisowski, who are entered in the new Silver Cup for drivers under 25 years of age. The fourth car sports the colours of G-Drive Racing.
