When we launched the first pair of Ethikas online a few years ago, there was a large amount of orders coming in from Australia. We took notice to the large amount of support coming from our friends down under and wanted to set up a Australian distributor to make it easier and more affordable to buy. We felt Lusty Industries was the best crew down there! If you’re in Australia and looking for Ethikas head to http://www.lustyindustries.com/ and check them out!

We would like to welcome Arie Luyendyk to the Ethika familie. Aarie will joined off road teammates Matt Cook and Doug Mittag for the final two rounds of the TORC series. Arie will be behind the wheel of the Cooper Tire/Ethika #25 Pro Light truck. Arie commented, “I am very grateful for the opportunity to follow my new path into off-road racing with Aero Motorsports. I’m excited to join the team and build on my experience in my first year racing off-road. I’d like to thank Matt Cook and Chris Pantani for making this possible. I’m can’t wait to represent Ethika and hit the track with my Cooper Tires.”
The boys all had strong finishes over the weekend in Crandon, WI. Arie turned heads with his debut finishing 5th overall. Matt Cook grabbed a 6th place finish and Doug Mittag ended the day on the podium finishing 2nd. Check out a couple pics and the on board dash camera from Arie’s truck below!
