Just watching EuroF3 on TV - are our new Hankooks exactly the same spec as theirs (F200 and Z207)? Anyone been through the bins after an F3 race...?
In my Monoposto days I used to go up to Donington Park after national race meetings and get F Ford tyres and later F3 tyres off the likes of Carlin for £10 each. A bargain, and ideal for club Motorsport.
Pete will know Graeme, or give Hankook a ring on 0121 551 2131.
The answer is no :-)
The F3 tyre is both wider and taller than ours although similar in construction.
Fortunately we have a great deal with Hankook and a bespoke tyre at £499 per set (plus vat) which performs well and has durability and consistency.
As the regs say;
The sole suppliers of Hankook racing tyres to the Championship are:
