Yokohama Tire has agreed to supply tires to the Porsche Pikes Peak Trophy for a second year. Yokohama will be the sponsor and exclusive tire supplier for the event in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The tire maker has 15 drivers competing in four classes, while six entries will be competing in the Porsche Pikes Peak Trophy by Yokohama class.

David Donohue, who won the Time Attack 1 class last year on ADVAN A005 racing slicks, will compete this time in the Pikes Peak Open division with a Porsche GT3 R TT on A005s.

Four drivers will also compete under the Yokohama banner in the Open Wheel division in Sierra Alpha cars. All will be on ADVAN A005 rubber.

“With Donohue taking on a higher class, Travis Pastrana going for a back-to-back title, the Time Attack 1 upping the competition and all the other top racers we have competing at Pikes Peak, it’s going to be a fantastic event,” said Fardad Niknam, Yokohama’s senior director of consumer product planning and product marketing.
