HIGH PERFORMANCE DRIVING

Own the Road

Improve your road driving skills by learning tips and skills from MICHELIN's track driver and get the most out of your car. Push your tyres and learn how to stay in control of your drive.

Meet the Master

Haslin's days are spent on the track, pushing cars and tyres as far as they'll go in an effort to discover any possible gap in which to improve tyre technology. Based in Clermont-Ferrand, France, Haslin is constantly travelling to race on the best tracks around the world, putting tyres to any challenge that he can find. MICHELIN's tyre innovation is owed to the tyre performance shown on the track.

Jerome Haslin, Chief Tyre Tester, with MICHELIN since 1992

  • Have the foresight

    Keep your eyes ahead, looking far down the road so that your movements are always natural and prepared for oncoming conditions. Remember that your movements are transferred right down to the tread on the tyres.

  • Brake hard with ABS

    ABS systems help to prevent brake lock-up, but they're best when you brake hard, unlike non-ABS systems. Reliable tyres will ensure that your car stops in time and with limited damage to the tread.

  • Speed out of a skid in front-wheel drive

    In front-wheel drive cars, speed up when you're fish-tailing. It's counter-intuitive, but the momentum will pull you out of the skid and let you regain control. Also try turning in the opposite direction to the skid. A set of reliable tyres will ensure that you have complete control of your vehicle.

  • Turn out of a skid in rear wheel drive

    In rear wheel drive cars, don't speed out of skids. Lock the wheel in the opposite direction of the turn. Once you're straightened out, turn the wheel back.

  • Turn with the skid in all-wheel drive

    In all-wheel drive cars, turn in direction of the skid. Once you're straightened out, turn the wheel back.

  • Quick accelerations

    Use the clutch and accelerator to keep your car in the right rev range. You want to get the most power without compromising traction. When you feel the tug of the motor, release the clutch evenly while feeding the throttle.

  • Traction control

    When you're going too fast and losing grip on the road, electronic stability control can't help you. Stay in the speed range that your tyres can handle for whatever road condition you're on – whether wet, dry, snowy or otherwise.

  • Good brakes and tyres are everything

    Good brakes and tyres keep you out of trouble. Keep them in good shape to avoid any mishaps.
