Drive Like A Pro

Improve your 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.

  • 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.

  • Knowledge Is Power

    Know the circuit. Learn every turn and stretch to unleash the power of your car, for a tighter, more competitive performance. Not only are MICHELIN tyres tried and tested for optimal tyre performance, but they are also tested for their grip and safety features.

  • Respect the Limits

    Learn the limits of your car's grip on the track. As you advance, you will develop the intuition that you need to pick up on your tyre performance as you drive.

  • Exploit the Curves

    The turn trajectory of your sports car is huge. You want to take curves as widely as possible, easing left before right turns to find the sweet spot, or vice versa. The wider you berth, the faster you can glide through the curve.

  • Steer to the Sweet Spot

    Strike a balance in your turns. Under-steering is when your trajectory is larger than you want, so you can't turn hard enough. Over-steering is cutting it too tight and can cause fish-tailing and spin-outs. You'll feel it in your seat.

  • Cool Your breaks

    Track racing introduces huge amounts of heat into your car's system – especially in the brake pads. Take a lap with minimal braking so that the airflow can cool off the iron brake pads.

  • Fluid matters

    Get high temperature brake fluid and make sure that it's not too old. Track racing is not only tough on your tyres but also hard on fluids.

  • Pressure is Key

    Every tyre has an optimal pressure when hot. Be vigilant about tyre pressure. When the tyre pressure is too high, you can over-steer from insufficient contact between the tyres and the road. On the track, the optimal levels are different from standard recommendations. Most sport tyres shouldn’t surpass 2.5 BAR when hot. But MICHELIN Sport Cup tyres, for instance, should be at 2.2 BAR. Familiarise yourself with the best pressure for your tyres.
