Michelin’s latest development in tyre technology, the Pilot Sport Cup 2 Connect, is a tyre fitted with a container within the tyre. This container is designed to carry the Michelin Track Connect sensor that when fitted connects to a user’s device and assists in optimising tyre pressures & temperatures for best possible lap times.
Optimal Track Performance
Designed for an 80% bias towards track use and 20% for road, the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 Connect remains a versatile tyre, suitable for every day driving with huge track potential. This makes it an ideal tyre for those who use their car to drive to the track, drive hard on track and drive back home again, giving drivers confidence in both situations.
Pilot Sport Cup 2 Connect and the M2 CS
The BMW M2 CS will have the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 Connect available as Original Equipment, making the tyre the first 100% connect ready tyre on the market. Those who choose this tyre will have to fit the Track Connect sensors in order to make the tyres fully connected.
Paired with an updated version of the already capable Pilot Sport Cup 2, Michelin Track Connect has been proven to improve not only handling and steering control but lap times as well. The Track Connect app delivers optimal tyre pressure recommendations based on conditions and tyre temperatures during laps. During testing, Michelin found the Pilot Sport Cup 2 Connect to be 7.40 seconds faster over 15 laps than the standard Pilot Sport Cup 2.
