Hankook continues partnership with Supercar Fest for 2021

Hankook Tyre UK is announced as the official tyre sponsor of Supercar Fest once again. The event is a supercar themed festival which showcases the best modern day and classic supercars ever built. Due to the event’s debut success in 2019, Supercar Fest will be hosting two events this year: “Supercar Fest: The Runway” at Sywell Aerodrome, Northamptonshire, and “Supercar Fest: The Hill”, returning to Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb, Worcestershire.

Daventry, UK, 12th May 2021 – Premium tyre maker Hankook is announced as official tyre sponsor at Supercar Fest for a second year. After the event’s hugely successful debut in 2019 at Shelsley Walsh, event organisers will be hosting two events throughout 2021. Supercar Fest: The Runway will take place on 30th May at Sywell Aerodrome in Northamptonshire, which will see the supercars go head-to-head on a one kilometre runway whilst Supercar Fest: The Hill Climb will be returning to the historic Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb, in the heart of the picturesque Worcestershire countryside on 29th August 2021, to show off the very best of the supercars’ handling capabilities as they ascend the hill climb.  Both events will offer non-stop action, including exclusive supercar, classic car and motorsport demo runs, trade stands, live music, and the chance to get up close and personal with the cars in ‘The Paddock’.

Hankook has strong links in Motorsport throughout the world including W Series, 24-hour GT Series, Supercar Challenge, British F4 as well as Radical which will feature alongside Hankook at Supercar Fest: The Runway. Also on display will be Hankook’s latest flagship tyre, the Ventus S1 Evo 3, which is an ultra-high-performance tyre for luxury performance vehicles, and the all-season Kinergy 4S2 which delivers year round performance, whatever the weather.
