Yokohama’s 2010 motorsports program is continuing its “eco-racing’ with orange oil-infused tires races.
Yokohama Tire Corporation had many major motorsports successes last year and is eager to continue in 2010 with its orange oil -infused ADVAN® ENV-R1™.

According to Mark Chung, director, corporate strategy and planning, the historic introduction of the orange oil compound ENV-R1 race tires has yielded success in 2009 and the company looks to introduce an even more eco-friendly tire for the Patrón GT3 Challenge at Sebring in March.  This new tire will further reduce the use of petroleum which increases recyclability while performing at the same level as previous compounds.

Check out the 12 Hours of Sebring, on March 18-20.
