Aussie Racing Cars (ARC) is proud to announce that Kumho Tyre has been selected as its exclusive competition tyre for 2017 season and beyond.

For the first time in nearly 20 years, the ARC will introduce a brand new tyre to the category and all indications are that the new tyre is set to get ARC drivers’ hearts racing. A bunch of teams have fallen in love with the new Kumho V700 tyre following pre-season test sessions in the lead up to the Championship opener at the Clipsal 500 Adelaide (2-5 March).
