Formula E: How electric racing is improving your tyres

Formula E hasn't been around long. It's only five years old, certainly not since the beginning of motoring, but lessons from the electric single-seat series are already sneaking onto the school run. Michelin has been on board with Formula E since day one, developing the Pilot Sport EV (generation one cars) and now the Pilot Sport for the growing category, and says it's already transferred tech from the e-prix circuit into its production tyres.

Michelin wants to 3D print your new tyres

Michelin is working on technology that could see the end of 'new tyres' as we know them today, by instead using 3D printers to bring worn-out rubber back to life. The idea forms part of the company's holistic 'Visionary Concept' with several innovative technologies including an airless wheel/tyre package, tyres made of wood, and 3D printing.

Michelin tyre claims to grip better with age

Michelin has invented a new tyre that it claims grips better with age due to a rubber compound that grows, rather than wears out, over time. The EverGrip system, the major technological innovation of the new Michelin Premier A/S, was developed by the French tyre maker to reduce stopping distances, increase hydroplaning resistance and increase tyre grip when worn.
