Experience the excitement of endurance racing like Le Mans
Look back at over a century of innovation in our Motorsports labs
We love winning races. But what's even better about racing is putting our tyres to the test. The gruelling punishment of the world's most difficult races lets us push our tyre technology to the limits.
MICHELIN has been racing since 1891, just a few years after the company
was founded. We're the only tyre manufacturer to have won events and titles
in all of motorsport’s major disciplines over the last four decades.
Racing constantly feeds our design and development programmes,
pushing the boundaries of our technological innovation.
It allows us to develop tyres that win races and then bring that
progress back to the road – to consumer cars.
That philosophy led us to develop MICHELIN Total Performance.
We reconcile conflicting design goals to create tyres
that excel in a variety of conditions.
- P. COUASNON, Director, Michelin Motorsports
MICHELIN loves a challenge. Many racing disciplines have single tyre
suppliers, but we prefer racing in series with competing tyre makers, like Le Mans.
We love to prove our mettle and show the incomparable performance
of our tyres. We also love an interesting technical challenge
that will push us to innovate, like the new FIA Formula E series,
which is dedicated to the development of sustainable technologies.
It's especially important in this case, as Formula E
prepares us for MICHELIN's next century of innovation.
