W Series continues relationship with Hankook tyres for 2022 season

W Series, partnered by Acronis, has announced that Hankook will continue to supply race tyres for the series’ Tatuus T-318 car for the 2022 season.

It was recently announced that the 2022 W Series will again support races at eight F1 Grand Prix weekends this year – kicking off at the Miami Grand Prix at the brand-new Hard Rock Stadium complex on 6-8 May.

The first pre-season test will take place at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for three days of running from March 2-4 as the current crop of drivers, including defending W Series champion Jamie Chadwick, will put the Ventus Race F200 slick tyres and Z217 intermediate/wet tyres through their paces.

“Last season saw some brilliant on-track action in a variety of weather conditions, as we joined the global stage of Formula 1. The momentum behind W Series’ mission continues to grow and, with the support of all our partners, 2022 is set to be a very exciting year for us.”
