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.

The Car

Ligier JS P320


Unveiled during the 2019 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Ligier JS P320 is one of the four new generation chassis selected by the ACO - the Automobile Club de l'Ouest. Worthy heir to the Ligier JS P3, with its modern hypercar look and its Ligier trademark nose with the hollow, the Ligier JS P320 is instantly recognisable.

The Ligier JS P320 retains all the Ligier JS P3's characteristics that have forged its reputation - its robustness and its easy running characteristics. With its 95% new bodywork, Ohlins dampers, a new more powerful Nissan V8 VK56 engine, an adapted cooling system and aerodynamics optimised for all the circuits, the Ligier JS P320's aim is to surpass its elder sister.
