The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) announced that Hoosier Racing Tire will be the official tire of its fast-growing road racing series in 2017. Hoosier, already the choice of many SVRA racers, adds their brand name to the list of sponsors joining or stepping up their involvement the vintage racing organization.
"Joining forces with a powerful company like Hoosier is another critical piece of the puzzle as we enhance our national racing platform with an impressive and growing list of investing sponsors," said Tony Parella, SVRA president and CEO. "With the broad array of cars in our series spanning decades from 100 years ago to contemporary racers we know Hoosier, with over 1,000 tire types, can meet the challenge of our needs."
While SVRA officials agree that one of the most appealing aspects to race fans of their series is the broad array of cars across 12 groups and numerous classes within them, it also that imposes special challenges on tires. That fact along with the diversity of tracks the series visits – from the ultra-modern, state-of-the-art permanent Circuit of the Americas Formula 1 course to airport circuits like Amelia Island's Fernandina Municipal Airport – puts a premium on having the support of a high-technology race tire manufacturer with the depth, breadth and state-of-the-art resources necessary to provide safe, fast, affordable rubber.
"We're already a leading supplier of tires in the vintage racing paddock and we are very excited about the prospect of working more closely with the SVRA, their race teams and car owners," said Bruce Foss, Hoosier Tire Circuit Racing Business Unit Manager. "We are greatly impressed with the fast growth of the SVRA which in just the past three seasons has expanded into a national organization. We want the Hoosier Racing Tire brand to be a key part of that growth momentum."
