I don't know but Michelin has been known to change model names with no
change to the actual product. The "Pro Race" used to be called the
"Axial Pro".

There's actually a small difference between the axial pro and pro race.
There's a puncture protection layer in both, but it goes from bead to bead
in the axial pro while the newer pro race only has it under the tread.
Marginally lighter with perhaps more supple, if less durable sidewalls.
Dunno about the pr2.
