Tyre giants Michelin has signed a three-year deal with A1GP to become the tyre partner of the World Cup of Motorsport starting with the 2008-09 season.

"The tyre design stems from Formula One technologies seeking to offer both optimal performance and safety to the driver. Full rubber serration tests were performed on various tracks including Fiorano, Imola, Jerez and Mugello resulting in the best possible compromise between grip, endurance and wear," a press release said.

A1GP General Manager, Technical and Operations, John Wickham said, "We are very pleased to be working with Michelin for the next three seasons. Michelin has a vast amount of experience in motorsport and will enhance the competitive nature of our series."

"We commenced the test programme at the beginning of June and have now specified the most suitable tyre compound and construction for our new A1GP Powered by Ferrari car."
