Hankook Show Sponsorship for the South West Continues

Hankook Shows Cornwall and Devon

Hankook sponsorship of the Devon and Cornwall shows head into its fourth year

Hankook Tyre UK Announces Show Sponsorships 

Premium tyre maker Hankook has been announced as official partner for three significant summer UK trucking events: the new ‘by invitation only’ ‘Best of the Best’ Truck Show at Westpoint Arena, Exeter on 14th and 15th September, the Devon Truck Show on 18th – 19th May at Smeathorpe Stadium, Honiton and the Truck Show Cornwall at Stithians Showground, Truro on 26th -28th July.

These shows focus on commercial transport solutions and showcase the very best of commercial vehicles across the UK and Europe. Hankook will showcase a range of truck tyres featuring the latest 3D technologies to maintain the wet grip and traction in all weathers and throughout the whole life of the tyre tread.

The Hankook truck tyres on display will include the 22.5″ SmartFlex AH51 (steer) and SmartFlex DH51 (drive), which deliver high grip and mileage performance from the first to the last millimetre of wear, the smaller SmartFlex AH35 and DH35 and the SmartFlex TH31, its latest generation trailer tyre. There will also be two tyres from Hankook’s latest retread ‘Alphatread’ range: the all-season R-DH31 for the drive axle with 3D sipes for excellent traction and high mileage and, for the trailer axle, the R-TH31 which offers excellent traction and water drainage.

Alongside Hankook truck tyres, the company will be presenting two tyres from its Laufenn brand: the all-position LF22 designed for long life steer axle service and the LF95, a robust trailer tyre with high durability and mileage.

As well as main event sponsor, Hankook shall be category sponsor of ‘Best in Show Truck’ and ‘Best in Show Light Commercial’. Open to any drivers showcasing their vehicle at the events, these awards recognise those owners and operatives who go above and beyond to meet road and industry standards, including vehicle and tyre maintenance and safety.

Jon Cottrell, Hankook Tyre UK TBR Sales Manager says; “It was a pleasure to be invited to become the main event sponsor of the new ‘Best of the Best’ show alongside the Devon and Cornwall Truck Shows in 2024. This is a great opportunity for Hankook to showcase our latest technology products to drivers and fleet owners. The shows, which support local charities and community projects in the Devon and Cornwall area, already have more than one thousand three hundred trucks booked to attend, and we are looking forward to another successful year.”

Mike Quartley, organiser of the events commented; “We are overwhelmed to have the support of Hankook Tyre UK at our new ‘Best of the Best’ Show as well as for the fourth year at both Devon Truck Show and the Truck Show Cornwall. All three shows are held to raise funds for local community projects and to date more than £30,000 has been raised.  Without the support of Hankook we would not be able to raise as much for these local causes. With monster truck rides, live action in the main arena, live music from the Wurzels, N Trance, Kevin n Perry, Ian Van Dahl, Scott Mills and Woody Cook, funfair and of course the show trucks, there is something for everyone at the 2024 shows.”
