SCCA Pro Racing announces Hankook Tires as Presenting Sponsor and Spec Tire of Mazda Miata Cup.

TOPEKA, Kan. (February 12, 2003) -- SCCA Pro Racing announced today that Hankook Tire America will be the exclusive tire supplier and presenting sponsor for the 2003 SCCA Pro Racing Mazda Miata Cup Presented by Hankook. The series, which features the popular first generation Mazda Miata, will utilize Hankook's newest R-compound racing tire, the Ventus Z211.

"This is a tremendous opportunity for us to showcase our Ventus line of Ultra High Performance tires, and for Hankook to increase its brand awareness," said J.W. Choi, President of Hankook Tire America. "Partnering with the SCCA in the Mazda Miata Cup series gives us the perfect venue in which to prove the superior quality of the Ventus UHP line, and to do so where it counts -- on the high-intensity track and with demanding ultra-high performance drivers. This is just the beginning of great accomplishments on the racing circuit with Ventus UHP, and with the Hankook brand as a whole."

"The partnership with Hankook provides our drivers and teams with a high-quality tire to perform on," said Mitch Wright, SCCA Pro Racing Vice President and General Manager. "In addition, Hankook's support of the series as a presenting sponsor adds extra financial incentives in increased purse and point funds."

The SCCA Mazda Miata Cup Presented by Hankook is divided into Atlantic and Pacific Tours, with a combined year-end finale crowning the SCCA Mazda Miata Cup Presented by Hankook North American Champion.

Tire availability and dealer information will be available shortly from Hankook Tires. For more information on Hankook Tires, please visit www.hankooktireusa.com. For more information on the SCCA Mazda Miata Cup Presented by Hankook, visit www.sccapro.com.
