HERITAGE AND PHILOSOPHY ARTICLE

Competition is innovation

We love winning races. But what's even better about racing is putting our tyres to the test. The gruelling punishment of the world's most difficult races lets us push our tyre 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 tyre manufacturer to have won events and titles in all of motorsport’s major disciplines over a period of the last four decades. Racing consently feeds our design and development programmes, pushing the boundaries of our technological innovation. It allows us to develop tyres that win races and then bring that progress back to road – to consumer cars. That philosophy led us to develop MICHELIN Total Performance. We reconcile conflicting design goals to create tyres 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 that we share with our partners who have exacting demands, plus the passion that helps us to rise to the challenges that 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 tyre suppliers, but we prefer racing in series with competing tyre makers, like Le Mans.

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