Video: Behind the scenes of Michelin Formula E tyre test

Michelin is exclusive tyre supplier of the FIA Formula E Championship. Despite its first race is scheduled mid-September, the French tyre manufacturer works hard to finalise its unique tire compound with embedded RFID chips.

At several mostly twisty racetracks in France, Portugal and Spain, the Spark Renault SRT_01E car ran over 2,500 test kilometres so far. Michelin developed an 18 inch tire which can be raced on in both wet and dry conditions. Development is key to ensure public testing, starting from July, will be valuable for the teams.

Formula E reporter Nicki Shields was attending the Michelin tyre test at Circuit D’Issoire in France. Have a look what its like behind the scenes.
