Hankook has generously donated £300 worth of tyres to the Dumfries and Galloway Road Safety Partnership to help promote their worthwhile cause.
The South Korean tyre manufacturer has handed over the tyres in advance of the Hankook Merrick Stages, part of the Hankook Scottish Rally Championship, which takes place on 4th September.
Inspector Neil Hewitson from the road policing unit, welcomed the gesture. He said:”To receive a donation like this from Hankook is brilliant, we will now sit down and work out how best to use the voucher for £300 to the benefit of road safety in Dumfries and Galloway.”
The Hankook Merrick Stages rally has been voted the best in the Championship for two out of the past three years with competitors set to tackle a total of 45 stage miles in the Galloway forests.
Inspector Neil Hewitson added: “Rallying has a natural home in Dumfries and Galloway but the advice from the Road Safety Partnership is to come and enjoy watching the rally but to leave the rally driving to the professionals.”
