Daventry, UK, 11 July 2023 –Hankook Tyre UK is proud to sponsor the special Open Day to celebrate 20 years of the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance which is being held on Friday 4th August at Chester House Estate in Northamptonshire.
The partnership between premium tyre manufacturer Hankook and The Air Ambulance Service – which operates the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance - was established in 2017 when Hankook donated the first set of tyres for the charity’s rapid response Critical Care Cars. As the charity’s helicopters are not flown in darkness or in extreme weather conditions, the good local road network and clearer roads overnight mean the Critical Care Cars are able to continue their lifesaving service round the clock, 365 days a year. To date, Hankook has donated more than 100 tyres to the charity.
The Critical Care Cars are fitted with Hankook’s award winning Ventus S1evo 3 SUV tyres which have an excellent performance rating on both wet and dry roads as well as high driving stability and steering precision.
Hankook will be exhibiting at the Open Day with a Critical Care Car that benefits from the donated tyres on show. Other tyres on display will be the Kinery 4S2, 2023 winner of the Auto Express All Season Tyre of the Year, and the new premium iON evo tyre, specifically designed for electric vehicles.
Karl Bexon, Critical Care Paramedic with The Air Ambulance Service said, “I’d like to say a huge thank you to Hankook for not only sponsoring this Open Day but also for their amazing commitment to The Air Ambulance Service over the past six years. Due to their generous tyre donations our Critical Care Cars have the reliability and safety of world class tyres which allows them to remain available throughout the day and night, enabling us to provide pre-hospital emergency care to our patients.”
The Warwickshire and Northamptonshire’s Family Fun Open Day is free to enter, where there will be stalls, activities, music and entertainment as well as a chance to get up close and personal with the service’s helicopter (subject to being called out on mission).
