Michelin and the Asian Le Mans Series have reached an agreement to extend the partnership for the French tyre manufacturer to continue as the sole tyre supplier for all three categories in the series.


In a multi-year extension to the agreement, Michelin will supply all categories with a selection of race tyres at each of the events, starting with Sepang this December.


Frédéric Lequien, ALMEM and LMEM CEO: “We are very happy to announce the continuation of the partnership with Michelin as the tyre partner of the Asian Le Mans series and 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.


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: Michelin is delighted to extend its partnership with the Asian Le Mans Series, a championship which we contributed to found hand in hand with the Automobile Club de l’Ouest.


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.


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."
