“Yokohama’s strong support has been a driving factor in the continued growth of the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama,” said Randy Hembrey, IMSA senior series manager, Development & Single-Make Series. “We’re pleased to extend this beneficial partnership into the Canadian series and are excited about its future as we work together with Porsche. With the USA and Canadian series now running on Yokohama tires, there are greater opportunities for teams and drivers to compete in both championships.”
“We’re thrilled to bolster our presence within IMSA’s lineup of world-class series and to be associated with a top-level brand like Porsche,” said Duane Sampson, motorsport manager at Yokohama Tire Corporation. “We will bring the same level of support and service to competitors in Canada that we have to the USA series since 2009, as we relish the increased feedback about the performance and durability of our tires. We’re also excited about the prospect of teams and drivers being able to more easily compete in both series without major setup changes.”
