Pista – Michelin Continues as ELMS Tyre Partner for LMP3

Michelin and the European Le Mans Series have reached an agreement to extend the partnership for the French tyre manufacturer to continue as the sole tyre supplier for the LMP3 category in the ELMS.

In a multi-year extension to the agreement, Michelin will supply all of the LMP3 teams with a selection of race tyres at each of the six rounds of the world’s leading continental endurance series.

Frédéric Lequien, Le Mans Endurance Management (LMEM) CEO:“The European Le Mans Series is pleased to announce that Michelin will continue to be the sole tyre supplier for the LMP3 category in the ELMS starting in 2025. Having a leading tyre manufacturer as the sole supplier is crucial to keeping team operating budgets under control and Michelin have consistently provided great value tyres for endurance racing. I would like to thank Michelin for their continued support for this important class of Le Mans Prototypes.”

Julien Vial, Michelin Customer Racing Director:”Tires for endurance prototypes are one of Michelin’s specialties. Even though they are less advanced than Le Mans Hypercars, LMP3s have high performance requirements and significant aerodynamic loads. With less complex electronics than the major prototype categories, LMP3s allow drivers to benefit from the full grip, feel and consistency of the Michelin tires. We consider LMP3 prototypes to be one of our priorities and we are delighted to keep working hand in hand with LMEM in the European Le Mans Series for this category. The Michelin tire range for LMP3 offers very high-quality and performance within a controlled budget”.
