Chevrolet-Corvette & Michelin

A Success Story in the USA & Beyond

In addition to their 82 race wins and 19 titles in American endurance racing, Chevrolet-Corvette and Michelin have achieved regular triumphs in the GT class of the prestigious Le Mans 24 Hours over the last 15 years.

The relationship between Chevrolet-Corvette and Michelin was born with the creation of the Corvette Racing team in 1999, since when a variety of Corvette C5.R, C6.R and C7.R models – all running on Michelin rubber – have sped to victory at circuits across America and of course Le Mans.

With 82 race wins (including 54 one-two finishes), ten Manufacturers’ crowns and nine Drivers’ titles in the American Le Mans Series – allied to eight class triumphs (including three one-twos) in the Le Mans 24 Hours – Corvette and Michelin irrefutably boast an enviable success record together in endurance racing’s GT category.

Today, the Corvette / Michelin partnership continues in the Tudor United SportsCar Championship and Le Mans 24 Hours – the undisputed jewel in the crown for Chevrolet’s sporting brand as it goes wheel-to-wheel with its European rivals in the toughest race in the world.

In 2015, Chevrolet-Corvette and Michelin succeeded in winning all three of the world’s greatest endurance races in the same season in the GT class: the 24 Hours of Daytona, 12 Hours of Sebring and the Le Mans 24 Hours.

The Chevrolet-Corvette/Michelin partnership in figures:

  • 82 victories and 19 titles in the ALMS
  • 8 GT class victories in the Le Mans 24 Hours
