Tire maker Yokohama will supply Geolandar M/T G003 mud-terrain tires for SUVs and pickup trucks to support Team Mitsubishi Ralliart in this year’s Asia Cross Country Rally, due to take place in August.

Team Mitsubishi Ralliart is a private team operated by Tant Sports (Thailand) with technical support from Mitsubishi Motors. This year the team will be competing in a Triton, Mitsubishi’s one-ton pickup truck.

Participation in a wide range of motorsport events is part of the Yokohama’s three-year (2021–2023) medium-term management plan, with the tire maker keen to form partnerships from top-tier events down to grassroots series.

The Asia Cross Country Rally (AXCR) is an FIA-certified event that was first held in 1996. This year’s event will be the first running in three years. In recent years, the AXCR has been run over a different course each year, with the starting line in Thailand before then passing through many Southeast Asian countries as it winds through a range of terrains, from mountains and jungles to beaches and plantations, and even race circuits.
