2009 Hankook Girls

Updated on January 24, 2017

After writing a hub article on Falken Tire Show Girls, I decided to write another hub article on arguably their biggest competitors: Hankook Tire USA Umbrella Girls. Another name for them could also be Hankook Spokes Models or simply Hankook Models. Both groups of ladies garner much attention during motor sports events all around the country while promoting their company's most important assets--no, not themselves (ha ha)--their tires! In this business, presentation is certainly everything, especially when it's geared to the male demographic between the ages of 16 and 35. So why are tires so important to motor sports? They can literally mean the difference between victory and defeat and being one of the most reputable tire companies in the world, Hankook Tire USA certainly has a firm place in the industry.

A Brief Overview About Hankook Tires

The Hankook Tire group, based in Seoul, South Korea is the seventh largest tire company in the world. Established in 1941 as the Chosun Tire Company, it was renamed Hankook Tire Manufacturing in 1968.

Hankook Tire's worldwide reputation has largely grown due to its radial tire and bias-ply tire production. The company now supplies tires as original equipment to the Toyota Motor Corporation, Ford Motor Company trucks, General Motors trucks, International Truck and Engine Corporation, and others. In addition to producing about 50 million tires annually, the company also sells batteries, alloy wheels, and brake pads.

The Battle of the Umbrellas

If ever you attended a Formula Drift event or the Drift Championships, you'd understand just how important it is for each company to represent their brand as motor sports is a multi-billion dollar industry. Among the tire companies, Hankook, Falken, and Toyo tires are tops. Monster Energy Drinks and NOS Energy Drinks are among the most popular beverage companies at said events that are readily present. Some of the most beautiful models in the industry grace the landscape while promoting their respective companies and some tote their signature umbrellas around like geishas with parasols: Falken Tires and Hankook Tires first come to mind. So yes, the competition is rough, but the fresh and beautiful faces of these ladies are sure to please. I'd like to introduce to you the 2009 Hankook Tire USA Umbrella Girls Helen Fancik, Kathy Gardiner, Janelle Ha, and last but not least Ashley Sarto. Please enjoy!

Formula Drift 2009 Team Hankook Tire USA

Helen Fancik

Born: August 14, 1987

Ethnicity: Hungarian

Hometown: Vista, CA

Height: 5'3

Weight: 110 lbs

Measurements: 34-23-34

Eye Color: Blue

Dress Size: 0/1

Shoe Size: 7.5

Helen grew up in a very strict household wherein she learned to speak (aside from English) Slovakian and Hungarian. When she was invited to become a 2009 Hankook Tire USA Umbrella Girl, she was at the time modeling for Monster Energy Drinks. She describes herself as being more of a "good girl" rather than a "bad one" who refuses to be pressured into doing things she's not comfortable doing. She enjoys sunbathing at the beach and pool, attending cars shows, skateboarding, playing with her dogs and drawing and painting. She also collects watches and sunglasses.

Kathy Gardiner

Born: July 3, 1982

Birthplace: Tacoma, WA

Hometown: Baton Rouge, LA

Height: 5' 5"

Weight: 103 lbs

Measurements: 33-24-33

Shoe Size: 7

Hair Color: Black

Hair Length: Long

Eye Color: Brown

Ethnicity: Korean/Other

Skin Color: Olive

Much like fellow Maxim Hometown Hottie Ursula Mayes who's also one-half Korean, Kathy Gardiner was an army brat growing up, having lived in Germany, Korea, and Italy including many different places all throughout the continental United States. Kathy began her modeling career doing model shoots locally in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Her modeling agency then suggested that she try submitting her photos to Maxim's Hometown Hotties contest. It's safe to say that she was ecstatic after having found out that she made the Top 100. She would end up placing 5th in 2005. It's also important to note that Kathy, just like Ursula Mayes was also a Deal or No Deal Model as well.

"Life is easy, but I make it complicated. I stand up for what i think is right, and i get beat up for it. I consider myself intelligent, yet i have my moments others consider "slow". I have a very bubbly and outgoing personality. I'm one of those girls who will randomly jump into a lake just because you said i wouldn't do so. Big time shopper, sushi eater, wine drinker, and movie watcher. I prefer to stay home, with a glass of wine and a great movie over going out to the club every night.

"I live in Las Vegas, but San Francisco is my hometown. I am a full time student at UNLV majoring in marketing. After i receive my bachelors, i plan to return for my masters in advertisement. My goal is to work as an advertisement executive in the field of fashion. I work part-time in retail. I'm honestly only working there for my 40% discount.

"Singing is my first love. Followed by dancing, acting, playing the piano, and of course modeling. I graduated from Las Vegas Academy as a vocal major. I am jazz, ballet, and hip hop trained. And I took piano lessons for 6 years. "I was born an entertainer, so let me entertain you."

"I currently hold the title for Miss HIN Seattle 2008. It is very fortunate for me to be an import model because I'm into cars, but mostly bikes. I hope one day to own an audi R8 or a Suzuki GSX-R600.

"I really appreciate all of you who take the time to read this. I hope it has helped you to get to know me better."

Ashley Sarto

DOB: Jan 13, 1988

Hometown: Hampshire/Chicago, IL

Measurements: 32-21-33

Height: 5'8"

Hair/Eye color: Brown/Brown

Education: Arizona State University

Turn-ons: Eyes, smile, gymnast-type arms

Turn-offs: Arrogance, cheaters and guys that only want that one thing.

Favorite Sport: Soccer

Little known things: I'm sarcastic and I snort when I laugh.

Goal: Become a dermatologist

Ashley Sarto began her modeling career at the age of 13. When she turned 15 she became fascinated with cars and car shows a year later. With two years of car show experience, she found herself on the cover of Import Tuner Magazine and hasn't looked back. Ashley considers herself a simple girl who likes sushi, cars, and a pair of nice jeans. She is certainly an up-and-coming import model who is on the fast track to stardom, as she is one of several beautiful faces of Hankook Tire America as one of their Umbrella Girls. Like fellow Hankook Tire America Umbrella Girl Janelle Ha, she claims that the secret to keeping in shape is not working out but rather a very fast metabolism.

      Hey Dean. I guess that you could say that I'm a bit bias :D However, beautiful women come from all nations (that's my own personal belief). Korean women are pretty darn amazing (just have a look at my Ursula Mayes hubs). Thank you so much for commenting. I certainly wouldn't disagree with you ;) Good luck on your search!

      Personally I've always loved Asian women, especially Korean girls. In my opinion they are gorgeous. Does anyone else think Korean girls are the best, or do you have another preference? I'm also curious to know which type of Asian woman you think is the best for marriage. I am chatting with some girls online at the moment and trying to find the right Asian partner to make me happy. Wish me luck!

      I may not be into drifting, muddin is more my thing, but the girls they have to promote the tires and drinks may be worth giving drifting a shot. Or, I can get a bunch of toothless girls with sloping foreheads to tromp around the bog with swamper tire umbrellas. Never mind. They already do... Great hub. I rated it up.

      Bet you had fun with this one!

One thing I didn't mention is that they are all car enthusiast and have their own tuner cars for racing and drifting (cars that they bought under their own terms, mind you). I'm glad that you liked it!

      What an assembly of gorgeous pictures with accompanying commentaries--neat. Like your description of geishas with their parasols--aren't they that and more?

      BTW, I'm a size 0 and i eat like a ...not pig...maybe horse? Not all skinny people are on a diet. Thanks for the lovely hub.

      I never knew about these either. It shows my ignorance but thanks to you I get educated and entertained at the same time. Your selection is great. You must have a good time doing these types of hubs. I sure do reading them.

      Oh, Beth...:D I appreciate the fact that he came by! I'm sure that other dudes took a peek but were reluctant to leave a comment. Behave yourself! LOL

      LOL. In my opinion, I'd much rather look at beautiful ladies than a bunch of hairy guys! I actually dated a couple of girls that were a size zero and they ate like pigs! They said things like,"Damn, I wish I could gain some weight." And believe me, I monitored whether or not they were doing the "refund" thing in the bathroom! Thanks! I'm glad you liked it!

      Hey Captain! Did you check out the video of her eating? It's just too random to pass up in my opinion :D Yes, I'm sure she's one heck of a conversationalist! Great pick!

      Hello, Kiera7. No, you are not late whatsoever! I'm just happy that you were able to come over and enjoy this hub. I did put more time into it than I thought I would, but hear such wonderful comments is a blessing. Thank you my friend. It's always great to hear from you.

      Holy cow - I want to know where the pics are of the guys, too - or how about some middle-aged women who are not size 0 - nah....wouldn't have the same impact and people might stop looking! Beautiful girls hands down and great hub/sharing them with the world.

      Ha! You too, huh Beth? Yes, I'm sure they'll be here soon! Leave it up to the men to always be late :/ Thanks so much for the comment. That's exactly what I was striving for. I'd be PROUD to date one of these girls by the away *coughs* They really are girls that moms would approve of ;)

      Huh? Wow, you're right! I'm sure they'll be coming around soon enough (we can usually smell ladies from REALLY far away. Until then, who cares? All you ladies--inside and outside of this comment box--are all beautiful :)

      Hey, Maita! Yes! I knew you'd warm up to Janelle, LOL. As soon as I found out that she was Filipino, I thought,"Hmmm...Maita's going to like that!" There really are several Filipinas out there in the modeling world for sure (sounds like another hub idea, whaddaya think?).

      Fresh, young, and beautiful are the first things that came to mind when I saw these girls too. Kathy may be the oldest out of the four, but the rest are closer to 20 than 30.

      Thanks so much Maita! I just knew you were going to like this one.

      Ha! You know what, VioletSun? That's exactly why I didn't title this hub "2009 Hankook Tire USA Umbrellas Girls" as several people would be turned off by it. I wanted to incorporate just enough curiosity so people will come and visit this hub just so they can, um, see what all of the hub-bub is all about! You are always welcome to visit me, VS! Thank you :)

      Thanks so much for that, Green Lotus! I actually laughed out loud after you mentioned that Hankook Tire is the seventh largest in the world! Well it's true! (Yes, I got your humor!). I'm amazed at all the thumbs-ups these fabulous girls are getting! Yes, they are sexy and at the same time are classy. I'm sure the guys too would agree :)

      Shucks, Pamela! What do I say to that? I will say that some girls/ladies CAN pull it off and some just can't. Age does not matter in such cases. Growing up, I always had complex about my not being good enough-neither intelligent, funny, or even good looking-for really anyone. However, when I began dating all of that was kind of thrown out the window as I ceased to being oblivious to the "signals" around me. In my past, I've only lacked the confidence to speak to a couple of girls--one being the one I'm dating :D Thanks so much, Pamela! That was very sweet of you.

      Thanks, Paradise! Yes, were I a spectator rather than the writer of this hub, I'd be gawking at these ladies as well. Now sadly, I think I looked at them enough *sniff* Thank you!

      Okay, before I get started on replying to your comments, I just want to say that you guys are the best and always manage to either put a smile on my face or make me fall out of my chair with laughter. Thanks ladies!

      Yeah, where are the men??? I would have thought that they would have filled your comment boxes! lol Very well done, Dohn. It's refreshing and tasteful, and, I have learned what Hankook is (I really had no idea it was a tire company.... lol ). Thanks for the beautiful, natural looking women and another terrific hub!

      Wow, I need to visit America soon to attend these Races.

      My favourite is Janelle. She has a very natural look. I mean they all look natural, but she is naturrrraaal. lol

      Dohn, be expecting a letter from people who run Miss World Pageant. I have asked them to consider you as one of the Judges for Miss World 2010 as you have a good eye for Beauty. :)

      Best Wishes.

      I had no idea what Hankook girls was about, thought it was perhaps an island I hadn't heard about, LOL! but after reading I got educated! The fashions made me smile, as fashions really do not change much, they get recycled. I wore white boots and mini's back in the 70's, it was the fashion of the time.

      As usual you have elegance when presenting the photos of women, so I feel comfortable reading and looking at your ladies hubs!

      Wow dohn what a well constructed, colorful Hub and I really enjoyed learning all about the seventh largest tire company in the world! I couldn't decide on my favorite model though, but I do pick the gray white and orange costume with the sexy snake of fabric down the middle and low rise skirt. I want one of those!

      dohn, Very beautiful girls. You can see why they are famous models. You mentioned those girls wearing inappropriate PJ's to the stores bothering you in my hub yesterday, but I suspect a lot of girls are interested in you when you're out and about. Good hub
