A three-year term has been agreed between Formula Drift and GT Radial which will see the company continue to supply its tires to competitors within the Pro Championship until 2025.
GT Radial has also extended its supply agreement as the official tire supplier of the Prospec series for an additional two years. Teams competing in this series will continue to use the GT Radial Champiro SX2RS tire which is produced at Giti’s plant in Chester County, South Carolina.
“Formula Drift has proven to be an excellent showcase for our ‘American-engineered, American-produced’ Champiro SX2 RS tires, so we are thrilled to renew our partnership,” said Mike Meeiem, motorsport manager, Giti Tire USA. “Team members at our South Carolina plant take great pride in the performance of their tires in the world’s most demanding drift competition, and they had a lot to cheer about this year.”
“We’re extremely pleased to have GT Radial commit to another three years with Formula Drift and continue to support Prospec for at least another two,” said Ryan Sage, president of Formula Drift.
“As we continue to promote the importance of Prospec to ensure a strong contingent of qualified drivers able to be promoted to the FD PRO Championship each year, it’s good to know they’re using some of the best tires available to prepare the drivers for the next step in their careers.”
