Michelin’s commitment to celebrating the most exotic and exciting vehicles on the planet and the automotive industry’s burgeoning electric vehicle innovation will be harnessed to its fullest at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

With a plethora of over 60 dramatic super, hyper and race cars on show, this year’s Michelin Supercar Paddock – situated next to the A West Entrance – is set to draw in crowds of enthusiasts who will see a cross section of the most hotly anticipated vehicles on the planet in the metal – many of which will be shod with Michelin tyres.

Celebrating landmark innovations from past, present and future, this year’s Festival of Speed event will ramp up the excitement levels to new heights with a multitude of global debuts and an impressive roster of celebrities, motorsport greats and respected automotive dignitaries on the live stage to keep the crowds entertained.

Dozens of rare and extreme vehicles are already confirmed to feature in the Michelin Supercar Paddock, with four special vehicles positioned on Michelin plinths, including the hydrogen powered Viritech Apricale hypercar; the highly sought-after Porsche Cayman 718 GT4 MR; and the H24 designed by Green GT, a high-performance electric-hydrogen prototype race car.

Also set to join the cast of exotic vehicles in the Michelin Supercar Paddock will be the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE, combining stunning racetrack performance and practical Formula 1 hybrid technology with its custom-made road-legal, MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 R MO1 tyres.

The elegant, British built Eadon Green Zeclat will catch the eye of showgoers, and, taking the hypercar genre to new extremes, the raucous, twin-supercharged V8-powered Zenvo TSR-S will also be in attendance.  

Within the Supercar Paddock, Michelin will be showcasing its expertise and innovation in several key areas where it is pushing the boundaries with new developments and technologies.

Putting the spotlight on its advances in motorsport, Michelin is taking another step towards a more sustainable future by introducing a new ultra-high performance racing tyre that contains an unprecedented 53% sustainable materials – a higher percentage of bio-sourced or recycled raw materials than ever before with no detriment to performance.

Alongside the UK debut of the 53% tyre, it will be displaying the ultra-high-performance MICHELIN Pilot Sport CUP 2 R, which provides extreme lateral dry grip and driving precision for powerful sports and hyper cars.

With technology and cutting-edge innovation at the forefront of this year’s show, reflecting the surge in popularity of electric cars and other combustion engine alternatives, Michelin has also partnered with the Festival of Speed for its EV Test Drive experience at the historic Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit on Friday 24th June.

Showcasing its extensive EV tyre technology during the EV Test Drives, the brand will demonstrate its MICHELIN Pilot Sport EV tyres. Introducing several new technologies to increase efficiency and optimise the handling characteristics of electric cars, the tyres include its GreenPower compound on the shoulders which reduces energy consumption for a longer range.

Focussing on its EV tyre technology and the measures it is taking to boost sustainability, Michelin will also be highlighting its goal to produce its tyres from 40% bio sourced or recycled materials this decade; a figure that will rise to 100% by 2050.

Celebrating the most spectacular vehicles on show, several special guests are set to determine the Michelin Supercar Paddock Showstopper on the Saturday of the event – a hotly contested badge of honour for the most exciting car in attendance.
