Hankook Tire and DTM extend partnership to 2023


We are delighted to announce that our supplier, Hankook Tire (“Hankook”), has agreed to extend their partnership with DTM as its exclusive supplier for the next four years. Hankook and DTM marketer ITR have agreed on an early extension to the partnership contract, which now runs through to 2023.

Hankook has been involved in arguably the most popular international touring car series as official partner and exclusive tire supplier since 2011. The new contract makes Hankook the longest-standing tire supplier in the history of international racing series.

The current DTM season features racing cars based on production models from three of the world’s premium automobile manufacturers. Audi and BMW have this year been joined by luxury sports car manufacturer Aston Martin. The 2019 season has also seen the introduction of new technical regulations, in accordance with the international Class 1 regulations, which have resulted in far more powerful DTM cars.

We are particularly excited that Gerhard Berger, ITR Chairman mentioned that Hankook’s competition tires have continually met all the requirements, and have more than proven their huge performance potential. Also, Manfred Sandbichler, Motorsport Director at Hankook Tire Europe, confirmed that there has not been a single tire-related retirement so far.
