Motorsport Australia can today confirm Hoosier Racing Tire has been selected as the new control tyre for the Motorsport Australia Rally Championship (ARC).
The three-year deal means competitors in Australia’s premier rally championship will be running on Hoosier rubber until at least 2022.
Business Development Manager for Hoosier Tire Australia, Mitch Dumesny, said competitors would be the real winners.
“Our rally tyres have been developed over many years to provide all rally competitors with the confidence to get the best out of their cars and showcase their skills,” Dumesny said.
“Gravel rally is a unique part of motorsport and the tyres need to be tough, durable and fast. We know we have a product that certainly ticks all those boxes and will be an exciting addition to the ARC.
“Our rally tyres have been winning all over the world, including right here in Australia. We can’t wait for the 2020 season to begin and to be a part of the action at the National Capital Rally in March.”
Motorsport Australia CEO Eugene Arocca said the new agreement would provide competitors with world-class rally tyres for some of the best rally roads in the world.
“We’re delighted to welcome Hoosier as the control tyre for the Motorsport Australia Rally Championship,” Arocca said.
“Hoosier have a strong racing pedigree across a range of disciplines, including being involved in various rally events around Australia. We know that they will provide a product that meets the needs of all of our competitors across the championship.”
Arocca said Hoosier were chosen as tyre supplier for the ARC in 2020 and beyond after an extensive tender process.
Round one of the Motorsport Australia Rally Championship takes place in Canberra at the Netier National Capital Rally on 21-22 March, 2020.
