Official Tyre Supplier
The Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) places its trust in Michelin, as the official tyre supplier and technical partner to the Asian Le Mans Series.
Michelin has a long and successful history of racing with the ACO dating back almost 100 years. After winning the inaugural race in 1923, Michelin claimed its 26th victory and 20th consecutive victory in the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans last year. It has also been the official tyre partner in the Asian Le Mans Series since it was first established in 2013.
One of the world’s leading tyre manufactures on and off the track, Michelin offers the Asian Le Mans Series teams and drivers tyres that are able to deliver fast, reliable and safe performance. They must withstand the toughest of conditions placed on them during endurance races. They must perform in the extremes of temperatures as well, from the blistering heat of Sepang, to the very low track temperatures in Japan. For Michelin, the longevity of the tyres is the key to success with consistency of lap times and long-lasting performance the priorities.
