Michelin Le Mans Cup
The Michelin Le Mans Cup visits six race circuits in Europe and includes the special ‘Road to Le Mans’ double race weekend, with the first race taking place Thursday afternoon and the second race held the morning of the Le Mans 24 Hours.
The series made its debut as part of the ELMS package in 2016, with only GT3 cars eligible to race. Due to the demand in the LMP3 class, the ACO decided to open the Michelin Le Mans Cup up to LMP3 teams wishing to eventually make the step up into racing in the European Le Mans Series.
The series is aimed at gentlemen drivers, with the regulations and amount of track time suited to their needs. Each race is two hours long, with two free practice sessions and a 15-minute qualifying session, which the bronze driver must take part in.
