Continental Tires, one of the leading manufacturers of premium tyres, held an exclusive Track Day in Chennai, showcasing its latest developments in tire engineering, safety, and performance. The event allowed participants to try out its newly launched Cross Contact H/T, and see its Intelligent Tyres for trucks and buses in action instead of a mere demonstration of its product range.
Mr. Samir Gupta, Managing Director, Continental Tires India, and Head of Central Region BA RE APAC said “Continental Track Day was one of first events that provided an experiential of ours products - particularly the newly launched CrossContact (H/T) for passenger vehicles, and Intelligent Tyres for Commercial Vehicles. The response for our products has been great, and is in line with our expansion strategy for India.”
