Michelin New MotoGP Tire Supplier

French tire manufacturer Michelin has been announced as the new official tire supplier for MotoGP beginning with the 2016 World Championship season.

At the beginning of May 2014 Dorna, in agreement with the FIM, began taking applications from manufacturers interested in becoming the official tire supplier to MotoGP from the 2016 season. Interested tyre manufacturers were able to request the technical specifications from Dorna’s Managing Director Javier Alonso, with three potential tire suppliers initially expressing an interest – before Michelin alone made a formal offer before the May 22 deadline.

The next step in the process will be the drawing out of a commercial agreement between Dorna and Michelin as official tire supplier, Michelin having already clearly proven its technical abilities to respond to the needs of a demanding Grand Prix racing schedule.
