The American tyre manufacturer is the exclusive rubber supplier for the brand-new TitansRX Rallycross Series – two German drivers have also joined the exclusive grid



Hoosier Racing Tire, the world’s largest exclusive racing tire manufacturer, has agreed to exclusively supply the brand-new TitansRX Rallycross Series with their “black gold” for the 2019 season. “We are very happy to have closed a partnership with TitansRX, as Rallycross has always been an integral part of our racing portfolio. TitansRX is a brand-new, exciting project, which we are delighted to team up with”, Martin Heckers, Head of Hoosier Racing Tire Europe, said.



"From our first contact with Continental and Hoosier Tire, we have experienced great professionalism, dedication, motorsport passion, service orientation and all the attributes that make a partnership great. Add to that all the testing and improvement on the Hoosier RX tires since we started, the entire TitansRX Europe team and all drivers have been highly satisfied with Hoosier Tire’s products. Not only is it a great Rallycross tire to drive, but it was fine-tuned to match the needs of the Pantera race car and the series format. We look forward to a successful long-term partnership”, series promoter Max J. Pucher was all smiles.



Headquartered in Lakeville, Indiana, Hoosier is renowned for its engagement in motorsport and has been providing tires for numerous racing series including NASCAR, IndyCar and the American LeMans Series. Since 2016, the company, which was founded by NASCAR driver Robert Newton, has become part of Continental AG, the fourth largest tire manufacturer. In its state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, dedicated solely to manufacturing racing tires in three shifts per day, the American tyre experts produce 1,400 different articles ranging from Kart, to Circuit, to Drag Racing, Rallye, Rallycross and Oval Racing equipment.



German power houses added




Meanwhile, parallel parking world record holder Ronny "C`Rock" Wechselberger and Rallycross veteran Andreas Steffen have joined the TitansRX grid.



Berlin-born Wechselberger has started Karting at the age of 11, and has been working as a race car driver, stuntman and driving instructor since 2004. During a stunt experience in India, Ronny got the opportunity to break the world’s tightest parallel parking record in 2011. “Of course, I was delighted, when Max (Pucher) asked me to join TitansRX, because it is a brand-new and amazing project. Rallycross is not new to me, as I have already competed once at a world championship event. But doing a whole season will make my dream come true! So, I am very excited. Wechselberger said.



At the age of 35, insurance broker Andreas Steffen bought his first rallycross car for EUR 3,500. Nearly a decade later, he was the President of his region’s automobile club running his beloved Estering and triumphed in the 2012 German Championship. “As a kid, I have always watched the races at the Buxtehude-based Estering and already back then, my dream was to become a driver myself one day”, Steffen said.




The German continued his way up in the rallycross ranks and even managed to compete on World Rallycross Championship level. For the 2019 season, he will not only host the Grand Final of the TitansRX Rallycross Series’ maiden season in Buxtehude, but also give his debut as a Wildcard driver on home soil.
