Sailun is celebrating the premiere of its Sailun tyre brand in the 2024 motorsport season and will be an official tyre supplier of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) in various racing series.

“Racing series offer us ideal platforms and also serve as laboratories on wheels. The broad-based commitment to racing ensures that we can also drive forward future innovations in the areas of safety, performance and sustainability,” emphasises Stephan Cimbal, Marketing Director of Sailun Europe.

From the 2024 season, Sailun will supply racing tyres for various international professional events, including the FIA F4 Chinese Championship, the TCR Asia International Series, the China Touring Car Championship (CTCC) and the Superrace Championship held in South Korea.

“Racing on FIA level is perfect to demonstrate sustainable performance. Motorsport has always been a congenial platform for developing, testing and proving advanced technologies that can be applied to mass-production products. ‘From racetrack to road’ is a common theme for premium manufacturers in all automotive businesses,” adds Cimbal.

In recent years, Sailun has also made advances in racing tyres thanks to its technological innovation and growing production capacity. The Chinese company has participated in numerous global events and its current range of tyres has been used in various motorsport series. In the future, Sailun plan to transfer the knowledge gained from motorsport to the technology of car tyres for everyday use.

“A further aim of the international motorsport commitment is to noticeably increase the company’s presence among customers and consumers worldwide, thereby increasing brand awareness and opening up new avenues and potential for European and global markets,” says the company in an official statement.
