The sixth and final meeting of the 2017 European Le Mans Series promises to be full of drama as all six titles will be decided on Sunday 22 October at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve.
The 4 Hours of Portimão will mark the first visit by the ELMS for seven years and the challenging 4.6km circuit will test the drivers and the teams to the limit.
Once again a 35 car grid will provide the fans at the circuit and at home watching on TV with some of the best motor sport entertainment anywhere in the world. The grid features some of the best sportscar drivers, including several World, European and Le Mans champions.
The race for the LMP2 team and driver titles is a two-way fight between the no22 G-Drive Racing Oreca and the no32 United Autosports Ligier, which includes local hero Filipe Albuquerque in the crew. However there are several other cars on the 12 strong LMP2 grid that are all capable of being first to the chequered flag.
Like the LMP2 class, the race to the LMP3 titles has become a two horse race between the reigning champions the all American United Autosports team and the all French team M.Racing-YMR run by former multiple FIA World Touring Car Champion Yvan Muller.
LMGTE: Quality Grid Providing Drama All The Way to the Flag!
The LMGTE grid might only feature six cars but every single entry can reach the chequered flag first. The 2017 season boils down to the final encounter in Portimão with just one point separating the top two cars and with five of the six cars still mathematically able to win the title.
Qualifying for the big race is 11:30 Saturday night Australian Eastern Summer Time so strap yourselves in for some great Sportscar Racing action.
