Video: Life as a Rookie Michelin Power Cup Racer

‘I’ve lived more in five minutes racing that bike than you have in your entire life.’

MICHELIN has released this promo video for the single-tyre race series the firm supports.

‘Life as a Rookie Michelin Power Cup Racer’ follows competitors including Rookie 600 rider Craig Kennelly and Pro 1000 rider Anthony Healey, who says: ‘I’ve lived more in five minutes racing that bike than you have in your entire life.’

We’re not sure about that but it’s worth a look.

Michelin said in a release: ‘Imagine a club racing championship that offers serious racing thrills at the best circuits in the UK, along with the professional experience of hospitality, catering, trophies, ceremonies, prizes and photo-calls. The Michelin Power Cup with Hottrax Motorsport is just that.

‘To give a sense of what it is like to compete in the championship, Michelin has produced a film following three riders as they race in Round 4 of the 2014 championship.

‘New for 2014, rookies have now taken up their place on the grid in 1000cc and 600cc classes to test their mettle against the pros.

‘With everyone lining up on Michelin tyres, the competition is all down to racing skill and technique.’
