12-19-2013

LAKEVILLE, IN (December 19, 2013) -- Hoosier Racing Tire is excited to announce that the Board of Directors for the International Kart Federation (IKF) have voted to adopt Hoosier Racing Tire as the official tire for their National and Regional Sprint series for the 2014-2015 seasons. “We are extremely proud to begin this partnership with IKF and look forward to building strong relationships with the organization, kart shops, and drivers,” said Adam Batton, Hoosier’s Kart Tire Product Manager.  “Hoosier prides itself on delivering a kart tire that excels in performance, consistency, and durability. Most importantly, our company is very passionate about providing the best customer service within the industry.”  

The IKF has been a governing body for the sport of karting since 1957. Headquartered in Ontario, California, IKF currently publishes rules for speedway, sprint, and road racing kart platforms. There are thirteen IKF regions that span across the United States and Canada. With this new national and regional sprint tire agreement, IKF is taking added measures to further reduce participant tire costs by adopting the Hoosier R60 for dry applications. The new Hoosier WET compound will be used in rain applications. Below is a product spec table for both dry and wet tires.
