Michelin at the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2016

Michelin is delighted to once again be partnering with the Le Mans 24 Hours. Since 1923, this magical, iconic race has inspired both young and old alike.

Such an enduring heritage is something that should be celebrated, and we share sporting values, as well as a common vision when it comes to technological development and energy efficiency. In such an ultra-competitive sphere, Michelin is extremely proud to have been appointed not only by the three biggest teams in the headlining LMP1 category but also by the vast majority of manufacturers competing in the GTE class, whose road-going sports cars we similarly supply with factory-fitted tyres, such as the new Ford GT, the Ferrari 488 and the Corvette C7.
