Tough test for the Hankook race tyre at the Ardennes Rollercoaster

  • 12H Spa-Francorchamps is round three of this season’s 24H Series powered by Hankook
  • Demanding layout puts drivers, cars and race tyres to the test
  • Unpredictable weather in the Ardennes can be the X factor

Neu-Isenburg, Germany, 21.04.2022 – The 24H Series powered by Hankook enters its third round. The renowned endurance series is in Belgium this weekend for the Hankook 12H Spa-Francorchamps. The race is split over two days. The field of roughly 50 starters contest the first 5.5 hours from 12:25 (CEST) on Saturday, before returning at 11:20 on Sunday for the second 6.5 hours. For the Hankook Ventus Race tyre, the Ardennes Rollercoaster is the biggest challenge on the entire calendar in the 24H Series powered by Hankook.

The 7.004-kilometre Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps winds its way through the Ardennes in an exciting sequence of corners, long straights and undulating sections. Manfred Sandbichler, Hankook Motorsport Director Europe: “The big changes in elevation make for high compression values. Furthermore, the drivers take some of the corners very fast, which generates huge amounts of g-force. This combination puts great strain on the tyre construction. However, the Ventus Race has always mastered this challenge in the past.” 

The variations in temperature are particularly treacherous at the Ardennes Rollercoaster, as the track runs through woodland in some places and temperatures can even be below zero at this time of year. “Similar to the Nürburgring, which is less than 100 kilometres away, the race tyre cools down in some sections of the circuit. This makes it difficult for the drivers to maintain the ideal level of grip. For example, the tyre temperature can drop in the downhill section before Eau Rouge, forcing the drivers to adapt when they accelerate out of the corner,” Manfred Sandbichler explains.

The challenging layout lends itself to a conservative, tyre-friendly set-up with reduced camber. However, the X factor in Spa-Francorchamps is always the weather. A race weekend in the Ardennes without a single drop of rain is a genuine rarity. Hankook’s Motorsport Director: “As the circuit is relatively long and very hilly, the drivers must cope with the fact that, should it rain, some sections will be wet, while others are dry. However, it is precisely these uncertainties that add to the special allure of Spa-Francorchamps, which last hosted the 24H Series powered by Hankook in 2019. I am looking forward to an exciting race, which is sure to be spectacular again.”

A Hankook Tire világszerte innovatív, díjnyertes, kiváló minőségű radiál abroncsokat gyárt személygépkocsik, terepjárók, SUV-ok, könnyű tehergépkocsik, teherautók és buszok, valamint a motorsport számára (mind a pályás versenyeken, mind pedig ralin résztvevő csapatoknak).

A Hankook Tire több mint 180 országba szállítja termékeit, és világszinten hozzávetőlegesen 20.000 alkalmazottat foglalkoztat. A világ számos vezető autógyártója első gyári felszerelésként is a Hankook Tire abroncsait választja.

A vállalat mindent megtesz azért, hogy a legmagasabb szinten elégítse ki a vásárlói igényeket a termékek minősége, a technológiai kiválóság és a vezetési élmény területén, Ennek érdekében a Hankook folyamatosan befektet öt kutatás-fejlesztési központjába és nyolc gyártási egységébe. A Hannoveri Technológiai Központban az európai piac igényeire szabva fejlesztik az abroncsokat, különös tekintettel az európai prémium autógyártók első szerelésű abroncsaira.

A Hankook Tire európai központja Neu-Isenburgban található, Frankfurt am Main közelében. A vállalatnak Ausztriában, Csehországban, Franciaországban, Hollandiában, Lengyelországban, Magyarországon, Nagy-Britanniában, Németországban, Olaszországban, Oroszországban, Spanyolországban, Svédországban, Szerbiában, Törökországban és Ukrajnában vannak képviseletei. A további európai országokban a cég termékeit regionális nagykereskedők terítik. A vállalat globális bevételének kb. 34 százalékát az európai piacokon és a FÁK országaiban realizált értékesítések adják. A Hankook Tire 2016 óta szerepel a világszinten elismert Dow Jones Fenntarthatósági Indexben (DJSI World).

A Hankook Magyarországot választotta európai gyárának helyszínéül. A 885 millió eurós befektetésből a Dunaújváros melletti Rácalmáson a világ egyik legkorszerűbb abroncsgyára épült. A gyár 2007 júniusában kezdte meg működését és azóta is folyamatosan fejlődik, bővül. A cég jelenleg mintegy 3000 alkalmazottat foglalkoztat, és személygépkocsik, SUV-ok és könnyű tehergépkocsik számára gyárt gumiabroncsokat. A harmadik beruházási ütem 2015 tavaszán fejeződött be, ezzel a magyar gyár éves gyártókapacitása 19 millióra nőtt. A rácalmási gyárban készült termékek az európai piacot szolgálják ki, és megfelelnek a vezető autógyártók előírásainak és igényeinek is. A Hankook Tire Magyarország Kft. rendelkezik az IATF 16949:2016. minőségi, ISO 14001:2015. környezetvédelmi, ISO 22301 üzletmenet-folytonossági és az ISO 45001:2018. munkahelyi egészségvédelmi és biztonsági tanúsítványokkal.
