Formula 3 Australia is pleased to announce that it has extended its deal with Tyre manufacturer Kumho Tyres as naming rights sponsor and official tyre supplier of the Kumho Tyres Australian Formula 3 Championship for the CAMS Gold Star.

The extension to the existing contract will see all Formula 3 cars in Australia competing on the Kumho rubber for at least a further two years and will see the tyre manufacturer continue as naming-rights partner of the championship.

The 2007 Kumho Tyres Australian Formula 3 Championship kicks off in Sydney, at the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport event, on February 2 -- 4.

"We are delighted to retain Kumho as our major sponsor and tyre supplier for the Kumho Tyres Australian Formula 3 Championship for the CAMS Gold Star," Said outgoing Formula 3 Australia chairman Jeff Mattner

"Kumho have been a fantastic partner for the last two years and we are looking forward to continuing and building our exceptional relationship for the betterment of both brands.

"We are delighted that they have seen the value in the Australian Formula 3 Championship and we are excited to have our competitors on their Tyres for at least another two years." He said.

Incoming chairman James Rosenberg was equally excited about the continuation of one of the series' longest sponsor relationships.

"Kumho Tyres and Formula 3 Australia have worked hand in hand over the last two years, and we are very much looking forward to building the relationship throughout the next two years," he said.

Kumho Tyre, Australia, Managing Director Mr. D J Lee said that his companies' relationship with the Kumho Tyres Australian Formula 3 Championship was a key platform for marketing their brand within Australia.

"Working with Formula 3 Australia is a key platform for Kumho Tyres Australia to promote our brand to a national audience at race tracks around Australia and through the series' television package," Mr. Lee said.

"Having seen that value, we are very happy to continue the relationship and continue to work with the championship to build both brands in Australia."

The 2007 Kumho Tyres Australian Formula 3 Championship, once again racing for the prestigious Australian Drivers Championship for the CAMS Gold Star, will kick off it's 2007 championship at the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport Australian event, in Sydney, next year.
