Team Mitsubishi Ralliart will run on Geolandar M/T G003 mud-terrain tyres in Asia Cross Country Rally.
The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., has announced that it will supply its Geolandar M/T G003 mud-terrain tyres for SUVs and pickup trucks to support Team Mitsubishi Ralliart as it seeks to win this year’s Asia Cross Country Rally (AXCR), Asia’s largest cross country rally, which will be held this year during 6th –12th August.
AXCR is an FIA certified event that was first held in 1996. This year’s event will be the first running of the AXCR, a cross-country rally similar to the Dakar Rally, in three years. In recent years, the AXCR has been run over a different course each year, with the starting line in Thailand and then passing through many Southeast Asian countries as it winds through a diverse range of terrains, from mountains and jungles to beaches and plantations, and even race circuits.
Team Mitsubishi Ralliart is a private team operated by Tant Sports (Thailand) with technical support from Mitsubishi Motors Corporation. This year the team will be competing in a Triton, Mitsubishi Motors' global strategic model one-ton pickup truck. Yokohama’s Geolandar M/T G003 tyres deliver superior performance on the full range of off-road surfaces over an exceptionally long lifespan. In addition, the tyre features a sturdy and aggressive design that enhances the off-road driving sensation. Yokohama’s Geolandar brand tyres, including the M/T G003, are widely used in motor sports and have performed brilliantly in many of the most demanding off-road races in Asia, North America, and other regions.
