I don’t have words to describe the experience of being at a car racing event. Watching your favourite wheels run on the field at breath taking speeds and then crossing the finish line to emerge victorious is a moment that stays with you forever. Watching a race on a mere TV set raises the excitement bar to such an extent that the person is almost out of his chair. When this is what you do in front of your TV just imagine what would it be to actually drive those power wheels yourself? I am not writing fairy tales here. Michelin Pilot Experience has arrived again to give the crazy sports lovers a chance to steer their favourite racing cars to get a perfect racing experience.
Michelin is a French company that specializes in manufacturing tyres. It was established in the year 1888 in Clermont-Ferrand. It is among the top 2 tyre manufacturers in the world. The other manufacturer in the top 2 is Bridgestone. Michelin manufactures tyres for motorcycles and bicycles, automobiles, space shuttles as well as aircrafts. It also has a long history of being associated with F1 racing, endurance racing and many other racing events. It has been the official tyre supplier for many teams participating in these events.
Michelin Pilot Experience was started by Michelin to promote its different products and strengthen its image in the global market. This is a completely consumer based event. Michelin invites various distributors, writers and consumers from Asia and Oceana to give them a life time experience. At this event they get to drive F1 cars, learn about steering a touring car and also experience the thrill of being on the racing field. In order to enhance this learning experience, a professional is always with you in the car.
