Roborace join-hand with Michelin in developing tyres for driverless race car series.

Monday, January 23, 2017

Roborace Ltd., a new venture working to develop a series for driverless race cars, has named Michelin Motorsports its official tire partner.

Michelin Motorsports said it will use "next-generation" road-going tires for the series, which will run as a companion to the Formula E electric racing series now in its third season and for which Michelin is the spec tire supplier.
Michelin's role as tire supplier extends to helping Roborace develop its car. Roborace has been testing its mule the past few months at Michelin's testing facility in Ladoux, France.

"Michelin impressed us every time we met, and they deeply understand the powerful opportunity of what road travel will become. They are pushing us, and themselves, to develop a world that moves from possibility to reality. Their commitment to safety and innovation, and the way we inspire each other to design the best possible solutions makes this a perfect partnership" said Roborace CEO Denis Sverdlov.
"We have been following the championship's progress very closely and have been testing privately with them for some time," Michelin Motorsport Director Pascal Couasnon said.

"We are very impressed by the speed at which Roborace has been developing driverless technology and hardware for its championship. Driverless technology is coming and we want to be at the forefront in terms of research and development".
