Making its racing debut in World Superstock this weekend at Valencia is Michelin’s new Pilot DOT race tire. Representatives from Michelin said this is the new tire’s first real racing test, and the design (including carcass structure, profile, and compound) is still under development. The sparse new tread pattern is the most obvious difference between the tires, but the Michelin reps also noted that, although the design hasn’t been finalized, the front tire profile currently being tested is more triangular than the old Pilot for better initial turn-in. Michelin said this tire probably won’t be available in the U.S. until at least September of this year.
