Giti Tire has launched a high octane video for its worldwide websites and social media - showcasing its global motorsports achievements throughout 2020.
Despite Covid-19 and its associated restrictions, Giti had a highly notable year, setting tires on the tarmac in the action-packed Nürburgring 24-Hour Race and Endurance Series, the F3 Asian Championship, the British Truck Racing Championship (BTRC), and VW Fun Cup UK.
These events, all of which represent longstanding partnerships either as the official tire or individual team sponsors, were joined by a growing e-sports team, now comprising of 40 international drivers driving 30 different cars in online events around the world.
Stefan Fischer, Managing Director - Product Technology at Giti Tire Europe, said: “In a heavily shortened motorsports season we are delighted we still managed to participate in so many events, because it’s only by driving our tires to their maximum performance we can take the learnings from the racetrack to the streets.”
The Nürburgring 24-Hour Race proved an exhibition in excitement with all four Giti Tire Motorsport cars achieving top three finishes in their race classes, and tire management proving decisive in helping the teams overcome terrible weather conditions.
The SP3T class proved a massive audience highight, with the Volkswagen Golf VI GTI CUP finishing in second and the trailblazing #gitiracing all-female racing team in their Volkswagen Golf VII GTI TCR overcoming a race crash and garage repairs to finish third. A dedicated video of the 24 Hours Nürburgring race can be viewed here.
The F3 Asian Championship completed its 2020 winter campaign ended in similarly thrilling fashion after a highly competitive five-weekend meeting which came down to the penultimate race of the season and an unfortunate retirement, handing BlackArts Racing’s Joey Alders of The Netherlands the title.
In the BTRC (Truck Racing Championship), Giti’s new fully race-prepared and liveried MAN TGX truck made its debut in the hands of Martin Gibson, the manufacturer’s Manager - EU Testing Centre and Motorsport UK.
Partnering with Stuart Oliver, the duo secured an amazing two qualifying pole positions, 12 podium finishes and three first place chequered flags from 13 separate races which included reverse grid starts. This gave them a final standings position of fourth and third respectively on the season.
All tires in every competition run on GitiCompete or Giti Race-Tuned tires, which form part of a comprehensive range of competition racing tyres which are used in events around the world. The proven technology findings are adapted to further develop its everyday portfolios.
