At the beginning of May 2014 Dorna, in agreement with the FIM, opened a tender for tire manufacturers interested in becoming Official Tire Supplier to MotoGP.

 

Following French tire manufacturer Michelin’s official tender, Dorna has announced that Michelin is to become the Official Tire Supplier to MotoGP as of the 2016 World Championship season. 

Interested tire manufacturers were able to request the technical specifications from Dorna’s Managing Director Javier Alonso, with three potential tire suppliers initially expressing an interest – before Michelin alone made a formal tender before the May 22nd deadline.

The next step in the process will be the drawing out of a commercial agreement between Dorna and Michelin as Official Tire Supplier, Michelin having already clearly proven its technical abilities to respond to the needs of a demanding Grand Prix racing schedule.
