LAKEVILLE, Ind. (Sept. 14, 2016) — Hoosier Racing Tire Corp. has secured a race tire supply contract with a new European road-racing series and renewed a contract with the sanctioning body for the Atlantic, F2000 and F1600 road-racing series in North America.
The new contract is with TransAm Euro Racing Series, a series in Barcelona, Spain — based on the decades-old Trans Am series in North America for pony cars. It is scheduled to debut in 2017 with eight events at tracks in France, Spain, Belgium and Italy.
The series will be limited initially to three body styles — Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Charger. It is being promoted by Quirin Bovy, a former touring and endurance car driver from Belgium.
“The TransAm Euro Racing Series is a great addition for Hoosier and we are grateful for the opportunity to work with them,” said Martin Heckers, managing director of Hoosier Tire Europe.
