I believe that Hankook is still evaluating their contingency programs for '08. I was told that it will be at least as good (if not better) than in '07 for NASA.

I am still working on it. Greg is right, I plan to make it better for 2008.

This will hopefully be my first year competing. This program will help me get that second set of tires and wheels for the track!

 

If I have two sets of wheels and tires, and one set puts me into another class, can I choose to run differnet classes over a race weekend by alternating which wheels I use?

Thanks guys for the 2008 opportunity!

 

Quick question, does the # of starters include all TT'ers in the rungroup, or just those in your respective class?

Is this going away for 2009? Philstireservice posted in the SE thread that all Hankook contingencies need to be redeemed by the end of the year or they are worthless.

Yet another person looking for info for 2009 contingency. Have an event in 2 weeks and need to order tires ASAP.

 

Basically, if Hankook has regional '09 TT contingency I'll buy them, if not I'll buy something else.

 

Any other Tire companies that have contingency for '09?
