Giti Tire was announced as the Official Tyre Supplier to the new Formula 3 (F3) Asian Championship Certified by FIA, which includes full support and partnership of the series events throughout the year. As the supplier of this new series, Giti Tire joins the FIA driver development programme to build an important part of 10 teams with 24 cars to achieve excellence. Giti’s GitiCompete GTR1 race tyres - with excellent product quality, professional technical service and rich event experience - would help the drivers advanced to a higher level of the international racing arena. Giti Tire says it is committed to building the Asian Formula 3 Championship Series as a combination of performance, safety and driver success. The partnership marks the continuation of a successful five-year collaboration between Giti Tire and championship organiser Top Speed, which began in 2013 with the Formula Masters China Series.
New Levels of Speed and Performance
The new Asian Formula 3 Championship would use an advanced FIA single frame and engine, maximising performance and talent to showcase top quality racing. Giti Tire would provide all F3 Asian Championship Certified by FIA drivers and teams with all slick and wet tyres for the 15-race, five-round inaugural season, which begins at Malaysia’s Sepang International Circuit on 13th July. Each team would receive two new sets of GitiCompete GTR1 tyres per event included in the entry fees. At the same time, Giti would also provide technical and service support as well as use race data to continually improve and advance tyre technology. Top Speed General Manager Davide De Gobbi said: “Giti Tire is the ideal partner for the new F3 Asian Championship Certified by FIA. The company has the resources and expertise we require to ensure performance of the highest standards as well as a proven track record with us in Asia. We are delighted to add Giti Tire to our roster of prestigious series partners.”
Phang Wai Yeen, Executive Director, International R&D Centers of Giti Tire, added: “We are very proud of our continuous and successful collaboration with Top Speed that has now taken us to the next level of formula car racing as the official tyre to the F3 Asian Championship certified by FIA. Through the last decade, Davide De Gobbi and the Top Speed team had successfully created a motor sport platform in Asia to propel young talents onto the international scene and we look forward to growing in tandem with Top Speed towards a higher level of participation in the FIA racing hierarchy.”
