All Michelin Tyres Stuff

Vehicle tyres, were originally made to provide the vehicle with traction that could go anywhere. They were developed to give the 4X4 driver excellent durability whilst also giving good wear and traction in any weather that the vehicle could come up across, including heavy snow falls.
Most tyres, were technically designed with the help of racing tyres and were derived from a “cut-chip and tear-resistant tread compound”. This would give the tyres tread exceptional grip and wear resistance when driving on roads that would normally tear tyres to shreds, such as gravel roads.

The giant French tyre maker, will consider bidding for the next V8 Supercar tyre contract if the category’s regulations change to ‘fit within the company’s DNA’, according the Australia-Asia marketing boss Tony Menard

Dunlop tyres have at the moment the licence tyre contract. Thus, to supply the V8 Supercars with their tyres. As a result,the contract has been held since 2002. Ending, is now set in 2017. Of course, this is when the giant French tyre company, Michelin could make a bid for the new tyre supply contract?

Consequently, Michelin V8 Supercar tyre are also expected to make a bid to supply.The lucrative F1 racing circus. Hence, when the Pirelli contract expires in the near future.

The rules for the Michelin V8 tyre, would have to change according to Tony Menard the  Australia/Asia marketing boss of Michelin, he said ” that Formula 1, which is supplied by Pirelli, and the World Endurance Championship provide the perfect contrasting examples of how a category can work for a tyre brand”

He was setting the table for different rules. Of course, about tyre sizes and compounds. Thus, which are  used at the moment.

I must admit that SKY television have hooked me in. Watching “Motors TV”. Of course, this channel shows everything to do with motorsport. Including the Australian V8 Supercar championships. The cars at the moment are running on Dunlop race tyres. I think though that the V8 Supercar tyre tender for the new season will see a successful bid from the giant French tyre company and the new season will see yet another TV screen full of the Michelin tyre adverts along with the F1 scene. Michelin seem to be pulling out all the stops in their endeavour to retain their top spot in the tyre world.

Michelin-F1 Interest

This is going to be interesting times ahead for the tyre world. Michelin could be interested in bidding for the right to supply F1 tyres in the near future?

This would be if the FIA look at using tyres.Hence, with a different size. So, say from 13 inch wheels to 18 inch wheels and giving the teams a choice of tyre compounds. hence, to use at their own discretion at the different race venues. This would add a whole list of new skills. Especially, for the drivers and ground teams to take in to consideration on the very race day.

Winning a race. Thus, would have to take into consideration the correct choice of tread and compound. Naturally, on that particular day and add more exciting to the proceedings.

According to  Michelin motorsport director Pascal Couasnon. For this reason, the French tyre giants would be interested in bidding for F1 tyre supplier if there was to be a change in the size of the F1 tyres and also a change in tyre compound strategy.michelin f1 interest

This is also the aim of the current tyre supplier Pirelli. Who have been part of car testing on 18 inch tyres. Martin Brundle completed a few demo laps in a GP2 test car equipped with 18″ tyres around Monaco the other Friday.

There has also been much speculation about the tyre companies wanting to use a variety of compounds. These would be used at the discretion of the F1 teams and drivers during a race. This could give the racing even more bite. The teams would choose their own tyres and compounds, meaning that the cars could and would be racing on different tyres.

This would mean that the team making the best choices would have a better chance of competing for the winners podium, making racing more interesting and exact. If these rules came in then Michelin F1 interest could be on the cards,
