Michelin to be Sole Tire Supplier for Moto2? michelin motogp 560x420

With Moto2 being an ever evolving race class, there is still some speculation as to whom its official partners will be. Repsol seems to be an almost lock on supplying oil and lubricants to the over-pepped 600cc Honda powerplants, as the Spanish company has a strangle hold on the MotoGP racing series.

What may come as a surprise to race fans though, is the resurgance of Michelin in prototype racing. After a less than stellar season last year in MotoGP, Michelin was ousted for the now sole-tire supplier, Bridgestone. Now, the French company is allegedly poised to sign a contract with Dorna to be the sole-tire provider with the fledgling Moto2 race class. This rumor seems to put out Dunlop, which has had a long history with the 250GP series.

With Moto2 constantly changing and adopting, we’ll believe this rumor as being possible for now; but, as always, time will tell.
