Michelin invites motorists to roll up at Goodwood

14th March 2012

Michelin has been confirmed as the sponsor of this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed, with tyres from the manufacturer set to feature prominently at the event.

Today saw the first official press day for the event, with supercars embarking on a series of runs at the track, with mascot Michelin Man waving the supercars on their way.

As part of the new agreement, Michelin will feature prominently at the Goodwood Festival, which is scheduled to take place from June 29th to July 1st.

A Michelin stand is already being planned for the event, with a variety of high performance cars and motorcycles featuring its tyres set to be on display.

Motoring fans will also get a chance to take part in the Le Man wheel change challenge, offering visitors the opportunity to win prizes for quick fire tyre changes.

The stand will also feature some of Michelin's new tyres, including the low-rolling resistance Energy Saver compound alongside the Pilot Alpin and Latitude Alpin compounds.
