Privately-Run Fiesta S2000 takes 4th

One of several David and Goliath results achieved by Kumho-shod rally and race cars in recent weeks was Dutch driver Herman Kobus’ 4th place on the Geko Ypres Rally, Belgium (June 19-21) – the 50th running of this ever-popular event. His privately-entered Ford Fiesta S2000 was only beaten by a pair of Works Skodas and an R5 Fiesta, all of which had professional drivers at the helm, and he missed out on a podium by a scant 18 seconds.

This excellent drive marked the debut of our new TM01 rally tyre that has been specifically developed to comply with European Rally Championship regulations, and was clearly working very well.

Commented Kumho’s European Motorsport Manager Steve Thompson:

“This is an astonishing result by Herman, which must have given the professional teams a bit of a shock. We were equally delighted with the way our new TM01 rally tyre acquitted itself – a performance that bodes well for the future.”
