An all Michelin field in the 2016 IMSA GT Le Mans


The 2016 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship will feature a slight change in the GT Le Mans class. The premier Grand Touring division in the IMSA series will have a 100% Michelin field.

Following the withdrawal of Team Falken Tire and their Porsche 911 RSR, all of the GT Le Mans cars will use Michelin tires in next year's competition.

BMW Team RLL, Corvette Racing , Porsche North America and Risi Competizione used the French tires in the past seasons in both American Le Mans Series and IMSA United SportsCar Championship, they will continue with Michelin in 2016.

The four teams will be joined by new comers from Ford Chip Ganassi Racing and Scuderia Corsa Ferrari. The latter will only compete in the special North American Endurance Cup.
