Michelin launches iconic riding days

GTC Motorcycles has joined forces with tyre giant Michelin to run a series of riding experiences at iconic venues across the UK.

Customers buying a set of tyres from Michelin’s track-focussed Power range will be eligible to attend a track day hosted by legendary racer Terry Rymer for just £49.

The Michelin Power Days will include 120 minutes of track time, tyre technical workshops and track day tuition from Terry himself. Refreshments are included and riders will also receive a photo and a limited edition T-shirt and mug.

Four iconic circuits have been secured by event partner GTC Motorcycle – Knockhill, Brands Hatch, Oulton Park and Mallory Park.

James Dimmock, marketing manager for Michelin motorcycle tyres in the UK and Ireland, said: “The Power range has been really well received, and we know these days will allow riders to get the most out of their tyres and their time on the track.

“Having the likes of Terry Rymer on board will be a big pull. He will be able to offer customers some real insights and he is well aware of the role top quality tyres play in staying safe and pushing the boundaries of performance.”

GTC Motorcycle director Matt Sunderland said: “We’re really excited to be co-ordinating the Michelin Power Days. We know riders will have a fantastic time and we’re looking forward to putting on track days that will help them return some blistering lap times.”

Places are limited and they will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Eligible customers buying a set of Michelin Power SuperSport Evo, Michelin Power Cup Evo, Michelin Power Slick Evo or Michelin Power Rain in 2016 can apply for the Power Cup Days.

Proof of purchase will be required at the point of booking.
