• A single new range of tires for the FIA World Endurance and IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championships’ Hypercar and GTP cars

  • New manufacturer partners for Michelin in topflight endurance racing’s premier classes

  • Michelin supplying tires for 25 of the 37 entries for the 1000 Miles of Sebring, as well as for the entire field contesting the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring

The 2023 FIA World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC) kicks off in the USA this weekend at Florida’s legendary Sebring International Raceway. After a two-day collective Prologue test on March 11-12, the 1000 Miles of Sebring proper (March 15-17) begins with Free Practice on Wednesday (March 15), followed by Qualifying late the next day, then the race itself - 1,000 miles (1,609.34km), or a maximum of eight hours - starting on Friday (March 17) at noon local time.


The 2023 FIA WEC’s opener will be followed on Saturday by the 71st Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, Round 2 of this year’s IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, for which Michelin is the Official Tyre.


The two races will see Michelin work with an impressive list of partners and carmakers, with some 200 cars competing on its tyres over the week. Their numbers include the newcomers to the two series’ premier classes, namely GTP (IMSA) and Hypercar (FIA WEC). The majority of these prototypes are hybrid and comply with the latest technical regulations that are now shared by the two competitions.
