ORANGE1 FFF Racing Team by ACM is glad to announce an important cooperation for the 2021 season – in partnership with Hankook the “Hankook FFF Racing Team” plans to conquer the 2021 NLS. The multiple winner squad has signed a strategic partnership with the premium tyre maker for an exciting and demanding new venture in the Nürburgring Langstrecken Series, the endurance championship taking place at the Nordschleife racetrack.
Following a positive one-off test in 2020, when ORANGE1 FFF Racing Team by ACM took part in one event, both parties decided to forge a partnership in view of the 2021 season. This represents a new challenge for the most-winning team using a Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO and the team having conquered the GT Triple Crown in Europe in 2019.
Thanks to the experience and knowledge gained in recent years, FFF Racing Team is the perfect pick-up as a stable and reliable partner for Hankook, and will provide a full endurance program in the 2021 NLS which includes the iconic Nürburgring 24 Hours, another important challenge to add to the team’s plans, along the Spa 24 Hours, the Intercontinental GT Challenge and the Endurance Series.
Fu Songyang, Team Owner Hankook FFF Racing Team
“I’m really happy to start the 2021 season with a new important partnership. Having Hankook with us is of great motivation to the whole team in its quest for excellence. I have personally always been fascinated by the atmosphere of Endurance racing, and the Nordschleife has a very special and strong reputation. Approaching this journey with a partner such as Hankook gives us a great sense of confidence ahead of what will be also the first time that a Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO will be present in the series with a high level full campaign.”
Sanghoon Lee, President and COO of Hankook Tire Europe
“Europe is our biggest region and is one of the core automotive markets. With this in mind, we are pleased to have this opportunity to demonstrate the performance of our products at one of the biggest endurance races in the world. We have a strong partner in the FFF Racing Team, with whom we want to continue Hankook’s success story at the Nürburgring.”
Manfred Sandbichler, Hankook Motorsport Director Europe
“The Nürburgring is a home venue for Hankook. We have completed countless test kilometres and entered many races at this circuit, in all kinds of weather. A large proportion of our development drives for road tyres take place here. With our years of experience at the circuit in the Eifel Mountains, together with the FFF Racing Team, which is very successful in GT3 racing, we are really looking forward to the 49th edition of the ADAC TOTAL 24h Race – particularly as the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO is more than capable of winning. I am delighted with this new partnership and I am sure that it will prove successful at the Nürburgring, in one of the most prestigious and difficult endurance races in the world.”
