For millions of motoring fans, Top Gear is essential Sunday night viewing and its annual Live Show is an equally eagerly-awaited calendar event, which is why Yokohama is delighted to announce it is the official tyre supplier to the 2015 spectacular.
Yokohama has signed a deal to become the official tyre supplier for the 2015 Top Gear Live UK Tour, which means its high performance and motorsport tyres will be used on all vehicles featured during the five-venue tour.
David Seward, Yokohama HPT Ltd managing director, commented: “I am delighted that Yokohama has been confirmed as official tyre supplier for the 2015 Top Gear Live UK Tour. The series of events really brings the television series to life and I am sure that our products will deliver the performance that the drivers require on every level.”
The tour, which has travelled the world over the past 10 years, will feature the regular trio of TV presenters, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, with The Stig completing the line-up.
And according to the organisers, the 2015 tour will feature “incredible cars, breath-taking stunts and calamitous mucking around”, with the usual donuts, burn-outs and fir, which have become the trademarks of the Top Gear Live shows.
Yokohama tyres revealed its products will ensure that Top Gear Live drivers are provided with the combination of consistency and grip needed in order to carry out an array of breath-taking stunts and precision manoeuvres with complete confidence.
