Kumho are celebrating a great start to the 2011 UK rally season with four of the Top Ten finishers on the GMF Motor Factors Wydean Forest Rally sporting Kumho R800 gravel rally tyres.
It was an impressive start for the South Korean tyres company, which enjoyed success with the event-winning Peugeot Cosworth of Andy Burton and Robin Kellard, and the Mitsubishi Evo IX of David Wright and Michael Wilkinson which was fourth overall and victorious in class B13.
Steve Thompson, Kumho’s European Motorsport Manager, said: “It is great to see the Kumho-shod cars achieving such a dominant start to the eight-round Silverstone Tyres BTRDA Rally Championship. Our gravel tyres our clearly working well and I hope it means we can look forward to another very successful season.”
Based at Chepstow Racecourse, 180 cars assembled for the event – which maintains its popular place in the UK calendar – and the entry list boasted quantity and quality.
