The MX-5 Cup you know and love, now with more Michelin tires.

More specifically, Michelin has been chosen as both the official tire supplier and presenting sponsor of the Whelen Mazda MX-5 Cup.

Every car competing in the series is now required to use Michelin Pilot Sport Competition 20/61-17 racing slicks in place of the BFGoodrich tires previously used.

The new Michelin tires are set to make their MX-5 Cup debut at the first races of the 2024 season at Daytona International Speedway on January 25 and 26 ahead of the Rolex 24 At Daytona.

Since Michelin owns BFG, I'm assuming this is a change in branding strategy, not a siginificant change in tire construction or performance.
