Michelin has been working in close collaboration with Roborace to develop exclusive tires for the series, which will feature next-generation autonomous vehicles.
The tires must be suitable for use on standard road cars, as one of the key goals of the championship is to develop software and hardware that accelerates the speed-to-market of driverless technology.
“We are very excited to confirm our partnership with Roborace today. We have been following the championship’s progress very closely and have been testing privately with them for some time. 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,” commented Michelin’s motorsport director, Pascal Couasnon.
