Yokohama Tire is hitting the trails with thousands of off-road driving enthusiasts during the 52nd running of Easter Jeep Safari Week, March 24-April 1 in Moab, Utah. Yokohama is an official sponsor of the popular event.
According to the Red Rock 4-Wheelers (RR4W), the longstanding organization that runs Easter Jeep Safari Week, approximately 25,000 to 35,000 visitors are expected to attend and participate in the annual Jeep celebration. Many will also drive the five trails which Yokohama is sponsoring: Moab Rim (March 27), Fins and Things (March 28), Flat Iron Mesa (March 28), Hell’s Revenge (March 29) and Seven Mile Rim (March 29).
Yokohama will also have its semi-trailer in the Red Rock 4-Wheelers Vendor Expo 2018 area featuring its rugged GEOLANDAR® tires, including the GEOLANDAR M/T G003™ mud-terrain tire.
“What better place to ‘Go Strong’ than Easter Jeep Safari Week in Moab?” said Fardad Niknam, Yokohama Tire senior director of consumer product planning and product marketing. “I can’t think of a more perfect spot to showcase our GEOLANDAR line to thousands of passionate, rock-crawling Jeep enthusiasts.”
Sponsoring a trail helps support initiatives that benefit the off-roading community, according to RR4W.
Yokohama’s other off-road alliances include being the title sponsor of the 2018 Yokohama NORRA Mexican 1000 and the 2018 Yokohama Sonora Rally, as well as being the official tire of Horsepower Adventures.
