GTLM Competitors in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship can use any tire, but since Falken Tires left in 2015, the GT Le Mans class has in essence become a defacto “Michelin” spec class with all five manufacturers riding on the brand.
As the teams are down at the official two day Sebring test, Michelin got everyone together for a video shoot.
The video features those five race cars – Corvette, Ferrari, Ford, Porsche and BMW – along with an example of the production sports cars they represent, as they roll around the track in formation. The video is a great example of each manufacturer’s “track to street” technology transfers which is ultimately why each brand is racing.
