ATLANTA— Apollo Tyres Ltd.'s Vredestein brand is the official tire partner of the annual Mile Miglia car rally, a 1,000-mile race for classic and vintage cars that were produced no later than 1957.
Vredestein tires will be fitted on four vehicles in the event, including a restored 1955 Porsche 356 Pre-A Speedster entered for the first time by the tire manufacturer's U.S. operations. The race begins June 15.
"Vredestein and 1,000 Miglia are historic names with rich heritage legacy," Abhishek Bisht, assistant vice president, Americas, said. "We are proud to be an official partner, and even more thrilled to have a Porsche Speedster sponsored by our US operation running the Sprint Classic tires that we developed specifically for these types of cars and their discerning owners."
