Racing cars have a better balance than last year, they are faster and are more attractive to fans. They are equipped with Hankook Competition tires and are homologated according to FIA regulations, “commented Stefan Mitov, National Sales Director of Industrial Commerce. “We are glad that we will take part in this well-known race for a third consecutive year and we expect a good performance of our crews in Varna,” he added.
