Michelin launches an exciting new motorcycle tyre technology website during this weekend’s Chinese Grand Prix. www.michelinmototechnologies.com brings fans closer to MotoGP with in-depth technical analysis, latest tyre information, plus an exclusive Randy Mamola blog and free goodies, including screensavers and other downloadables. The website highlights Michelin’s long-running success at the highest level in motorcycle GP racing and explains how Michelin’s MotoGP riders don’t only win races, but also help develop better street tyres every time they take to the racetrack.
Paddock personality Mamola will bring his insider know-how and inimitable sense of fun to the website throughout the 2008 World Championship. Every morning at every GP, from Friday to Monday, the American will offer his unique insight and humour to MotoGP fans across the globe, providing an exclusive link between the MotoGP world and the street rider.
“We want to give everyone a new angle on the MotoGP family,” says Mamola, a former Grand Prix winner. “There’s a whole lot of interesting stuff on the site, and we’ll be getting together to chat every day, bringing you the latest news from around the paddock, so you’ll always know what’ s happening and, even more importantly, why it’s happening.
