The Nürburgring 24 Hours, we are engaged in as the centrepiece of our racing activities in Europe, is one of the most demanding endurance races in the world. Consisting of two courses, the F1 Grand Prix circuit, and the Nordschleife, the Nürburgring is notorious. With over 300m elevation changes and more than 70 corners in every 25km lap, the Eifel circuit presents a unique challenge. Due to the mountain micro climate, drivers in the 24H race can also expect sudden weather changes to complicate their race strategy. Extracting the maximum performance for 24 hours in unpredictable conditions, challenges both car and driver, providing an opportunity for TOYO TIRES to test its tires in the extreme. In preparation for the Nürburgring 24 Hours, the team will also run in the Nürburgring Endurance Series.
In 2022, TOYO TIRES have renewed our participation team and signed a partnership agreement with Ring racing, the car tuner that has been building racing cars near the Nürburgring for over 10 years. TOYO TIRES has developed tires for the TOYOTA Supra GT4 car, which will be entered by Ring Racing.
In its mid-term business plan, 'Mid-Term ‘21 Plan', TOYO TIRES has announced that it will introduce in Europe with our pinnacle technology, sharpen performance at its R&D center to differentiate its products and enhance its branding.
Motorsports improves tire performance globally by incorporating objective and experiential data from extreme use into product development.
