Bridgestone will no longer be the Official Tire Supplier of the championship after the end of the 2015 season. Bridgestone become the Official Tire Supplier to MotoGP back in 2009, 7 years after debuting in the series alongside the 4-stroke machines. Just like the contracts of the top riders are ending in 2014, Bridgestone’s deal with the FIM and Dorna was drawing to an end, as well. However, the Japanese tire manufacturer and the two sporting organizations agreed to supply tires for the 2015 season.

Bridgestone will exit the MotoGP completely leaving Dorna to decide whether to continue to run a single-manufacturer setup for the MotoGP, or to work with either Pirelli or Michelin. A long and successful involvement in MotoGP™, supported by significant investment, has given Bridgestone an edge over the competition through the transition of race-proven technologies from the circuit to the road. Motorcycle riders around the globe will benefit from Bridgestone’s long and successful involvement in MotoGP™ for many years to come.

Bridgestone expresses its deepest gratitude to the riders, teams, FIM, IRTA and Dorna, as well as motorsports fans around the world, for their support over the years. Although it is planning to exit the MotoGP™ World Championship at the end of the 2015 season, Bridgestone will continue to do its best in promoting motorsport as part of its portfolio of activities.
