Le Mans 24 Hours
Easily the most famous and most historic motor race in the world, the Le Mans 24 Hours needs no introduction whatsoever.
Michelin’s level of success in the most challenging and demanding endurance race on the planet is legendary, for the last 14 years Michelin has been the tyre supplier and partner to the winning car.
Only those drivers able to complete almost 50 laps on one set of tyres had the chance to fight for victory at Le Mans in 2011 – and they were the ones using Michelin rubber. An historic 15th straight win in 2012 is Michelin’s goal.
Ones to Watch
Silverstone-based Strakka Racing has one goal for the Le Mans 24 Hours this year, to upset the factory might of Audi and returnees Toyota – and Michelin is backing the privateer LMP1 squad to be a major force in the 80th anniversary race. It’s an unbelievably tall order but if anyone can do it, Strakka’s line-up of Michelin columnist Danny Watts, Jonny Kane and Nick Leventis can.
