Kumho enjoys a clean sweep on the Jim Clark rally
First four cars on the National event fitted with Kumhos Kumho has followed its impressive showing on the recent Manx Rally with further success on last weekend's (May 23-25) Jim Clark event. The rally is effectively five events in one and cars shod with Kumho rubber filled the first four places on the National rally.
The first four places in the National event went to:
David Kynaston/Andy Russell (Audi A3 Quattro) Andy Fenwick/Lee Tindall (Skoda Octavia WRC) David Mann/Alun Cook (Subaru Impreza WRC) Alistair Thorburn/Paul McGuire (Subaru Impreza) Andy Fenwick and Lee Tindall, who returned to the Kumho fold this year after a season on rival rubber, were also the outright victors of the Reivers event.
Said Kumho's European motorsport manager, Steve Thompson, "This was another very impressive result for us. Apart from one brief shower, the surface was cool and dry though, as always, quite polished and lacking in grip. Our C03 dry tarmac tyre suited the conditions and worked well for all our runners."
Kumho is enjoying increasing success around the globe in all types of motorsport, the experience and knowledge gained from which is fed directly into its ultra competitive range of high performance road tyres.
