The company will supply the ADVAN A005 for use on dry tracks and the ADVAN A006 for use on wet tracks.
The Porsche Sprint Challenge North America by Yokohama will be a one-make competition for type 991 generation Porsche 911 GT3 Cup and 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport race cars. The first of a planned eight-event inaugural season of the Porsche Sprint Challenge North America by Yokohama will be held on the weekend of March 12–14 at the Sebring International Raceway in Florida.
Yokohama has been supporting a number of other Porsche motorsports events in North America in recent years, including supplying control tires for the IMSA Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama and the Porsche Pikes Peak Trophy by Yokohama in 2020. Yokohama tires selection as the control tire for these races reflects the high evaluation of the tires’ superior performance and YTC’s stable supply structure.
