Michelin is in the process of developing new tires for the MotoGP World Championship, a competition to which it is due to return in 2016 after a seven-year absence. This technologically-advanced series has made a significant contribution to the French firm’s motorsport heritage and helped it to forge a unique record in racing. While engineers from MICHELIN Motorsport are busy working with their partner teams to develop a whole new range of tires, Michelin has decided to produce a new ‘Back to MotoGP’ web magazine packed with exclusive feature stories.

Pascal Couasnon, Director, Michelin Motorsport: “Michelin sees this new web magazine as a means to share a number of insightful feature stories covering the past, present and future of MotoGP with bike racing enthusiasts and the media alike. We have a special bond with this discipline which has allowed us to showcase our know-how over the years. Our return after seven years away from the series that saw Michelin partners notch up 26 world titles and 360 victories is a highly emotional moment and a sign of the commitment of Michelin Motorsport’s teams."

This new web magazine will also provide specialists and fans of motorsport in general with a special behind-the-scenes glimpse of Michelin’s preparations for its return to MotoGP racing.
