Competition is Innovation

We love winning races. But what's even better about racing is putting our tires to the test. The gruelling punishment of the world's most difficult races lets us push our tire technology to the limits.

Racing since the beginning
Our roots in motorsports

MICHELIN has been racing since 1891, just a few years after the company was founded. We're the only tire 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 tires 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 tires that excel in a variety of conditions.

Michelin’s commitment to motorsports

We must not forget about another vital ingredient, and
that is passion: (...) the passion we share with our
partners who have exacting demands, plus the passion
that helps us rise to the challenges we face on the
ground, weekend after weekend, across the globe. Not to
mention the pride that comes with winning.

- P. COUASNON, Director, Michelin Motorsports

Bring it on

MICHELIN loves a challenge. Many racing disciplines have single tire suppliers, but we prefer racing in series with competing tire makers, like Le Mans.

We love to prove our mettle and show the incomparable performance of our tires. 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.
