Hankook Racing At 2010 Le Mans - Web Exclusive

Hankook's Racing Achieves 2nd Place at 2010 Le Mans 24 Hours

The Hankook-Farnbacher Racing Team scored up a podium finish in the GT2 class in its sophomore run at the 78th running of famed 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Drivers Dominik Farnbacher from Germany, Allan Simonsen from Denmark and Lehman Keen from the United States (the only US driver to achieve a podium finish in the race) drove their Ferrari F430 GTC to second place in the highly competitive GT2 category. The success comes on the heels of second overall and a class victory last month at the 24 Hours of Nurburgring in Germany.

The Hankook-Farnbacher Ferrari F430 GTC was equipped with Hankook Ventus F200 slicks. The team chose from various tread compounds designed for each axle position and for the varying track conditions encountered while racing during the day and throughout the night. To maximize the car's balance, the front tires had a softer compound than the rears. Tire partner Hankook Tire provided the team with approx. 400 tires at the track.
