Motorsports

Michelin’s focus on innovation and the unique expertise it has acquired over the years has seen it emerge as the technical partner of choice for many top manufacturer and independent teams in motorsports. Michelin has an outstanding record in motorsports endurance racing and has claimed the last 17 consecutive overall victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Motorsports is an integral part of Michelin’s research and development process, and the specialists who operate out of its Technology Center work hand-in-hand with Michelin Competition’s own engineers to develop racing tires and carry over the resulting technical innovations to the company’s road tires.
