Michelin will be the official tyre supplier for the 2014 Formula E Championship, the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) has announced.
Formula E holdings chief executive officer Alehandro Agag said: “FIA Formula E Championship and Michelin both share the same commitment to ensuring safety, innovative technology and sustainable mobility.”
The FIA Formula E Championship is a new racing series that aims to bring electric racing and sustainable motoring to high profile cities across the globe. While the championship will not kick off until next year, many car manufacturers are already preparing for it by improving their racing models for optimal performance.
Michelin is doing the same for its tyres, and is excited for the opportunity to showcase the finished product on a grand scale. Florent Menegaux, director of the automobile tyre product line of the Michelin group said the FIA Formula E Championship “will give us the opportunity to apply the very best of our technological know-how.” She described the racetrack as a “formidable testing ground in which to experiment and develop future technologies”.
A Formula E Championship event will be held in London next year. Other confirmed sites on the circuit calendar include Beijing, Los Angeles, Miami, Putrajaya, Rio de Janeiro and Rome.
ATS Euromaster has a wide variety of Michelin tyres in stock, ready to take home today.
