Aerokit and Nexen to battle side by side in 2014

Europe’s largest car styling brand Aerokit and Korean tyre manufacturer Nexen have combined forces for 2014 to form the Aerokit Nexen Drift Team. Both companies have been ever present in the Drift AllStars Europe Series from the beginning and this year are forming a collaborated team.

Nexen have dominated the Drift Allstars European Series for the past two seasons. Winning the Championship in 2012 they retained the title the following year in 2013. In 2014 the team mission will be a before as they look to make it 3 out of 3.

“We’re very pleased to join forces with Nexen Tire, having tested the tire last year I’m in no doubt that this is a step in the right direction. We thought that the team had reached a peak last season in our best ever year in motorsport but now with Nexen as our partner I believe that this year we will achieve even greater results. “- Tim Lo, Marketing Director – Aerokit
