137 cars set to race with Michelin at SuperSebring

March 6, 2019

Michelin’s largest North American race event in its history is befitting of the SuperSebring moniker for next weekend’s races.

A total of 137 cars will race on MICHELIN® Pilot® race tires across four different series.

IMSA’s series comprise 106 of those 137 cars. The breakdown is below:

  • WeatherTech SportsCar Championship: 38 (11 DPi, 2 LMP2, 8 GTLM, 17 GTD)
  • MICHELIN Pilot Challenge: 43 (28 GS, 15 TCR)
  • Prototype Challenge: 25 (LMP3)

Then, the FIA World Endurance Championship returns to Sebring for the first time in seven years. Its 34-car field features 31 different cars racing with Michelin (8 LMP1, 4 LMP2, 10 GTE-Pro, 9 GTE-Am). The Signatech Alpine Matmut LMP2 squad switches to Michelin for this race.

To accommodate this massive entry, Michelin’s workshop for Sebring will house nearly 16,000 race tires in a 24,000-square foot tent. A further breakdown of the tent will follow soon on MichelinRacingUSA.com.

FIA WEC teams will test on Saturday and Sunday. Monday and Tuesday are setup days, with a promoter test day scheduled for Wednesday before official weekend sessions begin later Wednesday afternoon.
