Michelin became the official tire of Sebring International Raceway for 2011. The highlight of Michelin’s involvement at Sebring in the lead-up to race week for the 12 Hours of Sebring is its new signage on the Turn 17 bridge and around the track for the new MICHELIN® Pilot® Super Sport ultra high performance street tire. The new tire will be launched in the U.S. in April.

Here is how the Turn 17 bridge got put together, with all photos courtesy of Sebring International Raceway.
