The SEAT Supercup Ireland will continue its partnership with Yokohama in 2017, the high profile one make championship having already enjoyed two successful seasons working with the Japanese tyre manufacturer. Quick to pledge its support when the introduction of the SEAT Leon Supercopa based championship was first mooted at the started of the 2015 season, Yokohama has gone on to become a key partner providing invaluable support to drivers and teams. Flying in a tyre technician on race weekends as part of its trackside support, this level of commitment will continue to benefit the growth of the SEAT Supercup as a number of new drivers join the grid for the upcoming third season of the championship. In addition to technical support, Yokohama’s PR & marketing support has also helped boost the profile of the championship with the introduction last season of the Yokohama Pole Award a popular addition that will continue in 2017.
Commenting on the news that Yokohama will continue its support of the SEAT Supercup, Championship Manager Oisin O’Briain said, “Yokohama have been a huge support to the championship right from when introducing the SEATs to Ireland was nothing more than an idea and they have been a pleasure to deal with over the last two seasons. We are delighted to continue working with them for 2017 and look forward to having Simon (Clarke) as part of our championship team again this season. Being able to tap into his extensive tyre & set-up knowledge was greatly appreciated by drivers last year and it will be a big help to the new drivers joining the championship this season. We are also delighted that through Yokohama’s Irish agents, Murray Motorsport, we have also been able to reduce tyre costs this year.”
Head of motorsport for Yokohama HPT Ltd, Mark Evans said, “We’re delighted to be supporting the SEAT Supercup once again in 2017. Last year’s championship proved to be incredibly exciting and close fought and I’m sure we will see more of the same again this year. The Yokohama tyres that competitors will be using utilise technologies that have been proven at the very highest levels of global motorsport. These will give drivers the confidence and opportunity to push their cars to their very limits which I’m sure will result in some thrilling wheel-to-wheel action.”
The 2017 SEAT Supercup Ireland consists of 12 rounds run over 6 weekends and will take racers to three different circuits. Running on Yokohama’s A005 slick tyre, each driver is permitted 2-new tyres per race weekend with Yokohama also supplying a controlled wet tyre for when the Irish weather does what it does best!
