Motorsport Australia Director of Motorsport & Commercial Operations Michael Smith said the securing the 2024-2026 control tyre supplier was an important part of the ARC’s future.

“As our current control tyre supplier, Hoosier has done a terrific job since they came on board in 2020 and we are excited about what lies ahead in 2023,” Smith said.

“Should it be of interest, we’d warmly welcome the Hoosier team to again express their interest in being part of the ARC in this vital sporting element of the Championship as we look for the control tyre supplier for 2024 to 2026.

“We’re also keen to hear from any other tyre suppliers who would like to get involved in the ARC and capitalise on the growth and interest we are seeing across all components of our events.

“While this won’t impact the 2023 season, we’re eager to have some certainty heading into the future as both teams and suppliers prepare for a busy few years ahead.”
