Hungaroring expected to pose first test in the heat for the Hankook DTM tyre

Premium tyre maker #hankook and the #dtm head to Hungary this weekend, for the first foreign leg of the 2017 season. The #hungaroring will host what is probably the most popular international touring car series in the world for the fourth time, and is regarded as one of the most demanding circuits on the calendar. With many changes in direction, as well as hard braking and accelerating, the key for the drivers is to get the race tyre, provided by exclusive #dtm partner #hankook, up to the ideal working temperature as quickly as possible, so as to be able to make the most of the potential grip generated by the Ventus Race.

Budapest/Hungary, 08 Juve 2017
Overtaking is quite a challenge on the narrow, winding #hungaroring. The best opportunity on the 4.381-kilometre track comes at the end of the start/finish straight, which turns sharply to the right after 800 metres. Lateral acceleration is at its highest in turns four and eleven, which are taken at approximately 160 kilometres per hour. "These sections are a challenge for tyres in general. However, the new #hankook Ventus Race will master this challenge with the aplomb we have become accustomed to from its predecessor," says #hankook #dtm race engineer Thomas Baltes.
