2011 Le Mans Series calendar revealed

The official 2011 Le Mans Series calendar is finally available. After a high standard 2010 season, with a large panel of manufacturers and private teams, 2011 puts the accent on novelties!

No less than five meetings across Europe will be on this season’s programme, with one new circuit in Italy: Imola. The race format goes from 1000Km to 6 Hours with the aim of having a better visibility of the races and improving their broadcasting. The main evolution in 2011, concerns the categories with the disappearing of GT1 and the appearing of LMGTE Pro and LMGTE Am (formerly LM GT2).

During this season, Le Mans Series and ILMC will share the track three times for the Belgian, Italian and British rounds. An appointment is made on 11 and 12 March 2011 for the official tests and on 1, 2 and 3 April for the year’s first race at the Castellet.
