ELMS comes to the Red Bull Ring with 41 strong cars

In prototype sport, the European Le Mans Series (ELMS) is something like the second Bundesliga. The series is located below the Sports Car World Championship (FIA WEC). At the top, however, it is not the hypercars that make the overall victory, but the LMP2. As in the World Championships, the GTE bolides also drive in the ELMS. The LMP3 are also part of the game. On the weekend of May 14-16, the ELMS will complete the second round of the 2021 season.

This will be held at the Red Bull Ring. The series was last seen there in 2018. All in all, super racing can be expected again, because 41 vehicles can be found in a first (preliminary) entry list. As always, the LMP2 is really strong. 16 vehicles were registered, with seven competing in the Pro-Am subclass.

It's just not that far with the variety of brands. All LMP2 are Oreca chassis. The 14 Oreca 07 are joined by two Aurus 01. These are Oreca renamed for marketing purposes. The best-known driver is Robert Kubica, who drives an Oreca from Team WRT. He starts again with Louis Delétraz and Yifei Ye. The trio has already won the season opener in Barcelona-Catalunya.

Two local heroes are also in the LMP2: René Binder drives in the Duqueine team and Ferdinand Habsburg in Algarve Pro Racing. With Porsche works driver Richard Lietz, a third Austrian competes in the GTE class.

The LMP3 also consists of 16 vehicles. However, these are divided into two brands. Two Duqueine M30-D08 face the phalanx of 14 Ligier JS P320s. Adess and Ginetta are currently not part of the ELMS.

There are nine cars in the GTE class. Six Ferrari 488 GTE Evo, two Porsche 911 RSR and an Aston Martin Vantage AMR. In Richard Lietz's Porsche, alongside Felipe Laser, there is again Hollywood great Michael Fassbender. The provisional entrylist is stored at this point.
