Yokohama supports plenty of Motor Sports in 2019

Yokohama Rubber Company has announced its plans for supporting motorsports events in 2019. The company will be participating in a wide variety of events in Japan and around the globe, from the top-category races to grassroots races.
Yokohama tyres have been the control tires for the Japanese SUPER FORMULA Championship since 2016. The 2019 races will feature a new machine design, the Dallara SF19, and YOKOHAMA’s ADVAN racing tyres have again been selected as the control tyre. The company will be supplying tyres with ADVAN tyres with two specs—a medium-compound tire and a soft-compound tyre. The ADVAN A005 will be used in races run on dry tracks and the ADVAN A006 will be used on wet tracks. This year’s sizes will be 270/620R13 for front tyres and 360/620R13 for rear tyres.

Yokohama has been supplying ADVAN racing tyres as the control tyre for the Japanese Formula 3 Championship, Japan’s longest continuously running motor racing series. Japan’s Super-FJ Formula racing series is a domestic regional championship established by the Japan Automobile Federation (JAF). The Super-FJ includes several highly competitive multi-race regional series held at the seven major circuits in Japan, from Tohoku in the north to Kyushu in the south. This year marks the tenth straight year since 2010 that Yokohama will be supplying ADVAN racing tyres for the Super-FJ races.
