The MICHELIN Pilot Sport EV: approved for the new Formula E championship!

A test session at Issoire, near Clermont-Ferrand, France, on April 14-16, 2014, enabled Michelin to sign off the new tyre that will feature in the brand-new FIA Formula E World Championship for electric single-seater racing cars which kicks off later this year.

Maranello Motorsports (Ferrari/Michelin) wins epic Bathurst 12 Hour

The 2014 Bathurst 12 Hour was brutal and relentless and, in the end, came down to a final fifteen-minute sprint to the chequered flag. The spoils ended up in the hands of Maranello Motorsport’s Peter Edwards, John Bowe, Craig Lowndes and Mika Salo (N°88 Ferrari/Michelin) by a margin of 0.4s over the N°84 Mercedes (HTP)! The N°63 Erebus Mercedes was third to make it an all-Michelin podium in Australia.

Latvala’s third Swedish triumph

After their previous Rally Sweden victories in 2008 and 2012, Jari-Matti Latvala and Miikka Anttila claimed their third win on the wintry fixture today in Karlstad. VW Polo R WRC/Michelin enjoyed a one-two finish thanks to Andreas Mikkelsen who scored his first ever world class podium. He was joined in the top three by fellow Norwegian Mads Ostberg (Citroën).

A land of melting snow

After the pristine wintry conditions that marked last week’s pre-event tests, positive temperatures in recent days have completely transformed the 2014 Rally Sweden landscape. The thermometer is expected to fluctuate between -2°C and +2°C this week.

The ‘Monte Carlo’ name in automotive history

Like Sebring, Daytona and Le Mans, the aura of Monte Carlo has inspired generations of automobile designers and manufacturers over the years. The name has been used for numerous models and limited editions, from the Skoda Popular to the Montecarlo Rascasse…

Sébastien Ogier wins in Monte Carlo

Defending world champions Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia harvested Volkswagen’s maiden victory on the prestigious Rallye Monte-Carlo today. The French pair was joined on the podium by compatriots Bryan Bouffier/Xavier Panséri (Ford) and British-Irish crew Kris Meeke/Paul Nagle (Citroën).

Monte Carlo tyres, then and now…

In the 40-plus years since the World Rally Championship’s creation (1973), tyres have frequently played a decisive role, and nowhere more so than on the Rallye Monte-Carlo. However, compared to the days when drivers had a specific tyre solution for nearly every imaginable scenario, today’s choice is far more rational and sustainable.

Welcome to the 2014 WRC!

With less than two days to go before the start of the 2014 FIA World Rally Championship, the 42nd in the sport’s history, the Rallye Monte-Carlo’s service park in Gap is gradually taking shape.
