BOB NEWTON, HOOSIER RACING TYRE CO-FOUNDER, PASSES AWAY
It is with great sadness that we report that Robert “Bob” Newton, the visionary behind Hoosier Racing Tyre, has died. He was 85 years old.
Bob died peacefully at home, surrounded by family members. In recent years Bob has been dealing with the effects of a stroke suffered in 2011. His greatest love was for his wife, Joyce, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.
Bob co-founded Hoosier Racing Tyre in 1957 along with his wife Joyce. They built the first and only manufacturing plant designed to exclusively make tyres for motorsports applications. Industry experts called Bob a master innovator.
Bob and Joyce’s passion and energy are the source of the success of Hoosier Racing Tyre. Their drive helped build a company that touched and enriched so many of our lives. Racers around the world are vastly better because of this husband and wife and their company’s ability to make safe, effective and affordable tyres.
Hoosier has lost a visionary and one of our ingenious co-founders, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Bob have lost a dear friend and an inspirational mentor. Bob leaves behind a company that only he could have been instrumental in helping to build, and his soul will forever be the foundation of Hoosier Racing Tyre as we continue to grow and prosper.
We at Hoosier Tyre UK send our sincere condolences to Joyce and her family, and to all of our colleagues at Hoosier in the USA.

The summer months have passed quickly, and at the end of a hectic few weeks we would like to offer our congratulations to the new National Hot Rod double World and National Champion Glenn Bell. Glenn has shown that he is a master in wet weather, with a convincing performance at both events.
We were also pleased to welcome the sales manager, Paul Menting from the Hoosier factory in Indiana for a visit in July. This was Paul’s first trip to the UK for the National Hot Rod World Final and he thoroughly enjoyed his visit.
The Formula Student event at Silverstone last month was very successful and very well attended from universities worldwide. Congratulations to all the teams for their effort and commitment in making this event a success. We were proud to have been involved and able to service this event again, for the 7th successive year.
Andy Frost, the driver of Europe’s fastest street legal car, has recently switched to Hoosier Tires, as his tyre of choice. The very impressive car - Red Victor 3 - is a 1972 Vauxhall VX4/90 and has to be seen to be believed.
We are pleased to confirm that we will once again be exhibiting at the Autosport Show (10 - 13 January) at the NEC. More details to follow as they become available.
