The European Le Mans Series (ELMS) is gathering momentum and attracting ever-expanding grids of high-calibre teams and drivers to its LMP2, LMP3 and GT classes – www.europeanlemansseries.com.
Organised by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO), the ELMS is recognised globally as a stepping stone to the world’s greatest motor race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and the pinnacle of international long-distance racing, the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC).
The ELMS’s headlining LMP2 division is perhaps the most hotly contested in Le Mans Prototype (LMP) racing and it provides all drivers, from seasoned professionals to discerning ‘gentleman’ racers, with a competitive and rewarding platform.
A race weekend typically encompasses three hours of free practice, a 20-minute qualifying session and a four-hour race, and the pan-European calendar includes halts at many of the most esteemed circuits in the world, including Silverstone, Autodromo Nazionale Monza and Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.
