DTM Trophy Strikes 2022 Season on Hankook Tyres at the Lausitzring


The 2022 DTM Trophy gets underway at the Lausitzring, with Hankook supplying its high-end Ventus race tyres

Hankook Previews DTM Trophy Season 

Hankook has been exclusive tyre partner since the series made its debut in 2020. This is a continuation of Hankook's consistent commitment to youth development, which is something that plays a major role in the company’s overall involvement in motorsport. 20 production-based GT sports cars will line up at the opening round of the 2022 DTM Trophy in Lower Lusatia. Drivers from eleven countries will be at the wheel of cars from big-name manufacturers, including Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Mercedes-AMG, Porsche and Toyota. Sophie Hofmann from Waldenburg is the only woman in the field. The 23-year-old made her DTM Trophy debut last year.

After the season-opener at the Lausitzring, the young drivers travel to such prestigious racetracks as Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari Imola, the legendary Nürburgring, and the Ardennes rollercoaster at Spa-Francorchamps. Each event features two races. The finale takes place from 7th to 9th October in Hockenheim. The young drivers are at the wheel of cars from renowned manufacturers and all benefit from the high potential of Hankook’s Ventus Race tyre
