About jk tyre motorsport

With Adrenaline in our blood, with the Thrill of the chase, with muscular machines taking a grip, sweeping stages and pushing the limits, we at JK Tyre believed while others doubted, and put our foot down only to begin with a bang! Our Journey wasn’t an easy one, but we believed that leaders never settle for anything ordinary! On this wise, to bring the extraordinary to India, we became the pioneer of promoting motorsports in the country. For over three decades, JK Tyre has shaped motorsports in India and put the country on the motor racing map of the world. It was a prime supporter of the only international event ever to run for over a decade. With a long term vision and commitment, JK put its money where its mouth was and created an ecosystem to provide racing opportunities to enthusiasts and all speed lovers in the country.

In the 1993 JK founded its own rally team and went on to become a 7 time Indian Rally Champion and the first ever Asian Zone Champion. Excited to take it to the masses, especially the young blood, JK was quick to discern the changing trend, and it launched its first ever karting program in 1997. Infusing young talent into the sport, JK tyre took upon itself to build the much- needed infrastructure in the country. Behind the thrill and adventure, went a lot of sweat from the brow to convert a piece of land covered in dirt into world-class race tracks attracting world-class racers. On the other side of the fence, we worked our fingers to the bone and successfully patronized tracks in seven cities across India, namely Delhi, Ahmadabad, Mumbai, Goa, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Kolkata. From Rallying to Karting and then in the year 2005, the national Rotax Max Karting championship was introduced. Cutting the edges of racing technology, we tried to break away from the pack and in that attempt, JK in 2011 took a giant leap and made the biggest announcement in the history of motorsport ever! The company took over the formula BMW Asia Pacific series and rendered it as the JK Racing Asia series. The series saw a line up of drivers from all corners of the world! The series made its entry into the world’s most renowned circuits of Europe, British GT, Lamborghini Super Trofeo,etc. The series also ran as a support race to Formula 1 in Malaysia, Singapore and India. JK kept pacing with international changes and improvement in technology, but remained the most cost effective program in the world, without compromising on safety standards.

In 2010, we tied up with Volkswagen, introducing the Volkswagen JK tyre Polo cup India in the 13th edition of the JK tyre racing championship. But that’s not the end as we went an extra mile this year and JKNRC extended its domain to the two- wheeler category. We joined Hands with Suzuki and launched the JK tyre Suzuki Gixxer Cup this year. We gradually upgraded from Rookie Cup to National Karting to racing the JK India series formula 3, moulding racers in their formative years.

With eyes full of dreams and considering speed, the soul of our business, we are now in the 20th year of this amazing championship. The JK Tyre National Racing Championship is as grand as its name suggests. It is held each year since 1997 to make people realize the power of the Brand and the superiority of our product. We have been producing a wide range of tyres with different grooving in order to fume the tracks with heat. From the dazzling arena of the Go karting championship to the hottest speed matches across major racing circuits, JK tyre has always taken the primary position to bring to you all the adrenaline pumping action since the last 20 years and counting! Grip it and Rip it!
