Michelin has been named the tire supplier for the FIA World Endurance Championship’s new top class, called “Hypercar,” starting with the 2020-’21 season.

“We are very pleased to have been selected as the tire supplier to the new Hypercar category in the World Endurance Championship, which will enable Michelin to remain committed to the highest level of endurance racing, where our brand has excelled for over 20 years,” said Scott Clark, Executive Vice President of the Americas region for Michelin Group, responsible for the Company’s global automotive, motorsports and experiences business segments.

“The new Hypercar category, vehicles most similar to exotic “super cars”, offers us new and particularly interesting challenges and also allows us to strengthen our partnership with exclusive vehicle manufacturers.

“As always, our goal is to develop tires that deliver the highest levels of performance and consistency over their life.

“Additionally, we look forward to bringing innovations that deliver sustainability solutions to the series, in complete alignment with Michelin Group’s strategy.”

Pierre Fillon, President of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO), added: “The FIA World Endurance Championship and particularly the 24 Hours of Le Mans, has enjoyed the benefit of Michelin’s technical expertise and pioneering outlook for many years now.

“As supplier of the new Hypercar class, the French manufacturer will be making a vital contribution to the bright new era of endurance racing.”
