You may have first heard of the Giti Tire brand when they partnered with Tuason Racing School for the Formula V1 Challenge series last year. At the time, they supplied the GitiSport GTR3RR1 race-spec tires for the V1 race cars. Now, just a year later, Giti Tires has finally launched its full passenger car radial tires lineup for the Philippine market.
Northern Automax Intersales, Inc. is the exclusive Philippine distributor of Giti Tires. In order to celebrate the launch, members of the Giti Tires family network and executives from all over the world were invited here. Those included were Chris Bloor, Executive Director of International Marketing and Sales; Martin Gibson, Manager Europe Testing Centre; and Robert Franklin, International Marketing Manager.
To showcase the capability of Giti Tires, everyone at the event had the chance to drive a Ford Mustang fitted with the GitiSport S1 tires. The cars and tires were tested in various courses including a slalom and a wet and dry braking test. Guests even had the opportunity to try out the Formula V1 car from the Giti-Formula V1 challenge.
The following models of Giti Tire are available in the Philippines: GitiControl Series - GitiControl 288, GitiControl SUV880; GitiComfort Series - GitiComfort T20, GitiComfort F22, GitiComfort F50; Giti4x4 Series - Giti4x4 HT152, Giti4x4 AT100, Giti4x4 AT70; GitiSport Series - GitiSport S1, GitiSport GTR3RR1; GitiRunflat Series - GitiControl 288 RunFlat Tire, GitiControl P80 RunFlat Tire.
