A multi-year extension to Michelin’s agreement with the Asian Le Mans Series will see the French tyre manufacture continue to supply all categories with a selection of race tyres at each of the championship’s events.

Frédéric Lequien, ALMEM and LMEM CEO, said that the series was “very happy” with the continuation of its partnership with Michelin. “It is very satisfying to have a partner which fully understands every level of endurance racing across the globe.

“The series continues to grow year on year, providing drivers and teams that want to gain experience in a multi class endurance series on some of the best circuits in Asia,” he said.

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone at Michelin for their continued support and we look forward to the first two races of the 2024/25 season in Malaysia.”

Matthieu Bonardel, Michelin Motorsport Director, said that the brand was “delighted” with its partnership extension.

“As the series has progressively developed, competition enthusiasts in Asia have been introduced to endurance racing, which back at the time was little known in this part of the world.

“Today, the participation into the Asian Le Mans Series of top-quality teams and drivers in all categories is testimony to the success of the series, which is now one of the world’s leading endurance racing championships,” he continued.

“Michelin is also delighted to be continuing its collaboration with Le Mans Endurance Management, its first-class partner.

“As in all motorsport activities, Michelin will take the opportunity to deploy its “all-sustainable” strategy also in the Asian Le Mans Series.”
