MICHELIN HEADS TO THE FASTEST ALMS TRACK ON
(September 2, 2005)
Michelin's teams in the American Le Mans Series will battle on
the championship's fastest race track when they head north of the
border to Mosport International Raceway this weekend.
While other circuits like Road America may experience a high top
speed, Mosport holds the honor of having the fastest average lap
speed in the ALMS.
The former home of the Canadian Formula One Grand Prix is the
only track where qualifying speeds exceed 130 mph.
Mosport tops the speed charts at 131.283 mph, ahead of Road
Atlanta (128.353 mph), Road America (128.915 mph) and Sebring (121.397
mph). Surprisingly, the "bullring" of the ALMS, Lime
Rock Park is next at 118.581 mph ahead of Mid Ohio (113.956 mph),
Portland (112.744 mph) and Infineon Raceway (111.497 mph). Mazda
Raceway Laguna Seca is actually the track with the slowest
average speed of the year at 106.160 mph.
Each of these speeds was recorded by the pole position winner in
the past twelve months of ALMS competition.
The sustained high speed around Mosport's lightning fast turns
presents a unique challenge for Michelin.
PERFORMANCES: Michelin continues to dominate in all forms of
motorsport throughout the world. It leads the 2005 Formula One,
World Rally and MotoGP Championships across the globe.
In ALMS competition, it has already clinched the ALMS tire
championships in P1 and GT1 and only requires a second place
finish by one of its Porsche teams in GT2 to clinch its 15th ALMS
Michelin is undefeated in the P1 and GT2 classtaking every
championship since the introduction of tire championships in 2000.
Statistically, that domination of the ALMS in 2005 by Michelin
has continued to grow. The Bibendum boys have earned 3,530 points
out of the 9,985 tire manufacturer points award in the ALMS since
200035.35% of the total.
This year, Michelin has already earned 434 points (46.66%)its
most significant percentage haul ever. Michelin's 434 currently
leads Pirelli on 137, Yokohama 118, Kumho 82, Goodyear 80, and
Dunlop on 79.
UP THE GT1 BATTLE: While the driver's title fight will be
fought between Corvette teammates Ron Fellows/Johnny O'Connell
and Olivier Beretta/Oliver Gavin, the Michelin-equipped ACEMCO
Saleen S7 squad has shown in recent races they have the potential
to be the "fly in the ointment" in the championship
The Saleen ran second early at Road America and briefly led at
one stage before being delayed by a gear linkage problem and a
Terry Borcheller and teammate Johnny Mowlem eagerly await the
upcoming battle at Mosport this weekend.
"The S7 really likes Mosport," exclaims Borcheller.
"The circuit has a lot of undulation and off-camber turns.
The S7 is a good car in the transitions, from braking to turn-in.
We have been improving steadily since Infineon and I hope that
Jeff and the crew can keep the improvements coming. It is
refreshing to be able to mix-it-up a little at the front of the
Michelin is currently in the middle of a 20-race winning streak
in GT1dating back to Road America in 2003 when David
Brabham and Jan Magnussen won for Ferrari.
RACE WINS CONTINUE: Michelin passed the 150 class-victory
mark at the last round of the championship at Road America.
Michelin's total now stands at 152 wins61 in P1, 38 in GT1
and 53 in GT2. The Bibendum boys have earned more than three
times the tally of their nearest rival.
Michelin's 152 victories lead Goodyear with 45, Yokohama with 11,
Pirelli with 9, Avon with 8, Dunlop with 4 and Kumho with 3.
