Michelin in the ecology race
A major player in endurance, the French manufacturer will be looking for a thirteenth consecutive title at the Le Mans 24-hour race. This ambition comes with the search for ecology as Michelin will be using a range of tyres without aromatic oils for the first time.
This is a real breakthrough for the French manufacturer as these new compounds combine a whole range of performances: maximum grip on wet and dry surfaces, more mileage and fuel savings. This new range of tyres will be fitted to competitors in four categories: LMP1, LMP2, LMGT1 and LMGT2.
