Kumho Viper BThe beast is back! On May 9 Dodge unveiled the latest, and without doubt greatest, Viper ACR – a hand-built street-legal race car that will be available for sale in the US from September of this year. Said Dodge’s Tim Kuniskis: “Our aim is to arm our enthusiasts with the ultimate Viper track car that will dominate road courses around the world.” To achieve this, the company has endowed the 2016 model year Dodge with significant aerodynamic and suspension upgrades, new carbon ceramic brakes with six-pot calipers, and Kumho ultra-high-performance tyres complete with ACR logo embossed on the sidewall.

Twin Busch Kumho pre-ring15Twin Busch has been the front running privateer team in Germany’s Nürburgring-based VLN Championship for some years now, even winning one round outright in 2013. The squad’s history in the ‘Green Hell’s’ gruelling 24 Hour race is also mighty impressive and they last year finished 10th overall behind nine works outfits. They plan to eclipse that result in this weekend’s event (May 16/17) and have been working hard with their long-standing tyre supplier Kumho to achieve that aim. Read More »

Kumho Jennings15The 2013 Irish Rally Champion, Garry Jennings, heads the points after round one of the 2015 national series, despite not winning the event outright. The fact is, though he brought his Kumho-shod Subaru Impreza WRC S12B home 38.7 seconds behind the Ford Focus WRC of his old adversary Donagh Kelly on last weekend’s (February 22) Birr Stages Rally, he ultimately accumulated more points by being the fastest of all through the so-called ‘power stage’.

‘Billy Coleman Young Driver Of The Year 2014’ Dean Raftery had never driven a WRC car before achieving a memorable 6th place overall on last weekend’s (February 6-8) Colm Quinn BMW Galway Rally at the wheel of a Kumho-shod BMW Mini. The result was all the more remarkable for the fact that he and co-driver Mark Kane had dropped as low as 18th on the opening day, following time lost to a loose water pipe. Undeterred, the 23-year-old put in a remarkably mature drive, setting a string of top five stage times to finish just four places behind the sister Mini of his illustrious team-mate, five-times Irish rally champion Eugene Donnelly. Raftery’s Colm Quinn-sponsored car was prepared by McGeehan Motorsport and ran on Kumho CO3 and TW02 rally tyres supplied by local motorsport dealer, Ears Motorsport Ireland.

Kumho Ypres14One of several David and Goliath results achieved by Kumho-shod rally and race cars in recent weeks was Dutch driver Herman Kobus’ 4th place on the Geko Ypres Rally, Belgium (June 19-21) – the 50th running of this ever-popular event. His privately-entered Ford Fiesta S2000 was only beaten by a pair of Works Skodas and an R5 Fiesta, all of which had professional drivers at the helm, and he missed out on a podium by a scant 18 seconds.
