ELMS: 2020 European Le Mans Series provisional revised calendar

The 2020 ELMS season should start in Le Castellet with 5 races to decide who will be the next European Le Mans Series Champions. Following the postponement of the start of the 2020 European Le Mans Series due to the COVID-19 pandemic around Europe, the 2020 ELMS calendar had to be revised. The new calendar will be composed of five 4-hour races and was readjusted after the announcement of new dates for the 24 Hours of Le Mans (19-20th September).

The 2020 season should start in Le Castellet on the 19th July with the Official Test on the 13th and 14th July, if the health conditions and the government requirements allow it. The second round will be held in Belgium with the 4 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps on the 9th August. Then the championship will head to Spain for the 4 Hours of Barcelona on the 29th August. After three races, the teams will have a break from the championship in order to focus on the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which will be held this year on the 19th and 20th September.

The ELMS season will then continue in Monza, Italy, on the 11th October. After the Italian round, the finale of the 2020 European Le Mans Series will take place as usual in Portimão on the 1st November. Of course, this revised calendar stays subject to amendments according to the evolution of the ongoing crisis.

Gérard Neveu, CEO of the European Le Mans Series: “The new 2020 ELMS calendar will last four months instead of seven. In this difficult economic and healthcare climate, we made the choice to hold five races instead of six to ensure the comfort of our competitors.

“Obviously, this new calendar is subject to changes according to the resolution of the crisis and our capacity to organize races in the countries we planned to visit at the dates mentioned above. As everyone knows, we will always prioritize the health of our competitors, our paddock and our fans. “We also take the opportunity to implore everyone to take care of themselves and their loved ones.”

Pierre Fillon, President of the ACO: “In the context of what we are all going through now, the reprogramming of the ELMS 2020 season calendar required certain adjustments in concert with our different partners, competitors and host circuits. “The priority is to ensure the good performance of our championships by limiting as far as possible the effects of this crisis for all. “Furthermore, the start of the 2020 24 Hours of Le Mans will be at 14h30 (local time) on 19th September.”

If further revisions are made to this calendar, you will be informed in due course.

  • Official tests 13-14 July 2020
  • 4 hours of Le Castellet 19 July 2020
  • 4 hours of Spa-Francorchamps 9 August 2020
  • 4 hours of Barcelona 29 August 2020
  • 4 hours of Monza 11 October 2020
  • 4 hours of Portimao 1st November 2020
