MICHELIN RUBBER FOR FIA GT CAMPAIGN

CR Scuderia's FIA GT Championship prospects received a boost today when it was announced the team's pair of GT2 Ferrari 430s will run on Michelin tyres in 2008.

Chris Niarchos, Andrew Kirkaldy and Tim Mullen all raced on Michelins in the 2006 FIA GT Championship and between them took every single pole position that year and five race victories, so naturally they are delighted to be working with Michelin again in 2008.

"We have worked hard to make sure we secure Michelin tyres for 2008 as we know they will give us the best chance of success in the FIA GT Championship," said CRS Team Principal, Chris Niarchos. "This is a real coup for a new team and we are very happy that Michelin has recognised the fact that we are going out there to win."
