From the track...

Michelin has had a winning presence on the racing circuit for over 125 years with partners like Porsche, BMW and Audi. In fact, some of our engineers are more present there than at Michelin!

... the proving grounds...

It’s not just that we love racing. It’s also that many innovations are discovered and tested there – in the most extreme conditions.

Le Mans: “...unless you are really pushing at the limit, you don't know where the limit is, so you don't develop. ”

- Allan McNish, driver for the Audi-Michelin team

- Endurance racing: to win, you have to go as fast as possible with the fewest number of pit stops. This is where we learned to build long-lasting, energy-efficient tyres – ones that brought us 23 wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, 17 of them consecutively.

- Rally racing: winning cars are fast and precise in extremely diverse, real road conditions. We learned to make tyres that handle all conditions to deliver precise driving – and 22 World Rally Championship Driver titles and 24 Manufacturer titles.

- Motorcycle racing: Winners require deft yet safe handling as well as speed. We learned to develop tyres that respond to the special needs of motorcycle racing, winning a record of 360 race wins and 40 world titles.

...to your daily drive.

These innovations are passed on to your tyres, to give you a winning experience on every trip.

Our Competition and Technology Centre teams work hand-in-hand. They speak the same language; they share the same passion; what’s more, they share what they have learnt as soon as a race is completed.

We race to win. But we also race to learn. And give you ever better tyres. The proof is in the pudding... or rather, in our tyres.
