Radical Sportscars today announced its first new global partners in a decade, as part of its 21st anniversary showcase at Europe’s largest motorsport show, Autosport International.

Effective immediately, Hankook Tire is Radical’s dedicated tyre partner across all championships and racing activity. Motul becomes the leading British manufacturer’s first official lubricant partner, with Motul engine oil to be used in all Radical models.

Young Soo Kim, Hankook Tire Manager, Motorsport Team Europe HQ, and Romain Fabre, Motul Head, Centre of Excellence Market, flew in to the UK to join Joseph Anwyll, Radical CEO, especially for the announcement at the Birmingham NEC this morning (Friday).

The appointment of these invaluable new partners heads up a plethora of initiatives planned for Radical’s 21st anniversary year. In particular, it marks the move towards unified model specification and regulations across all official championships operating across four continents. This will offer a new, consistent level of support and service for all Radical racers, teams and distributors while enabling drivers to compete on a simplified and level playing field worldwide.

Hankook Tire is one of the global top five companies manufacturing innovative, award winning radial tyres of proven superior quality. After an intensive 12-month period of testing to equal or exceed the performance of previous specifications, Hankook Ventus tyres will be standard OEM and aftermarket fitment across the Radical range. Hankook will also provide a dedicated paddock support service at Radical race events, in addition to bringing an extended programme of joint marketing and promotional activity.

For more than 160 years world-class French company, Motul has been unanimously recognised for the quality of its products, innovation capacity and involvement in the field of competition, and as the specialist in synthetic lubricants.

These will become standard OEM and aftermarket fitment for all Radical models, including the SR1, SR3, SR8, RXC (Spyder, 600R, GT3 and GT-Road). The Motul product range will be available from Radical’s Peterborough (UK) HQ, trackside and through the company’s 30 worldwide distributors.

Nigel Land, Radical Sales & Marketing Director:
“We are delighted to announce Hankook Tire and Motul as our new technical partners with immediate effect, ready for the new racing season. Both partners are at the forefront of their industries, pushing the performance boundaries they are recognised and respected the world over, making them the natural choice and perfect fit to partner Radical in our 21st year and beyond.

“We have undergone 12 months of intensive testing with both companies in multiple climatic and test conditions, to meet our extensive durability, quality, reliability and performance requirements. Last year saw the launch of the second generation SR1 and ultimate SR8 race car to great acclaim, strengthening our international grids and offering. The appointment of Hankook and Motul further underpin Radical’s commitment and ever developing racing vision.”

Manfred Sandbichler, Hankook Motorsports Director:
“The cooperation with Radical is another milestone in our international commitment. Radical stands for top performance on the track as well as on the road.

We will help to ensure that the vehicles will be at top performance level. Another highlight of the new partnership will be our cooperation in many popular motorsports series across continents; the partnership with Radical provides excellent opportunities to showcase our high-performance products worldwide.”

Romain Fabre, Motul Head, Center of Excellence Market
: “Innovative and Unique. Radical is one of these very few companies sharing Motul values, building bridges between the automotive and the motorcycle worlds, and committing to ambitious growth plans whilst remaining true to their core values. We are very pleased to be the first Lubricants Partner for Radical.”
