2020 European Le Mans Series
United Autosports No. 22 Oreca 07, Winner of the 2020 European Le Mans Series

The 2020 European Le Mans Series was the seventeenth season of the Automobile Club de l'Ouest's (ACO) European Le Mans Series. The six-event season began at Circuit Paul Ricard on 19 July and finished at Algarve International Circuit on 1 November.[1]

The series was open to Le Mans Prototypes, divided into the LMP2 and LMP3 classes, and grand tourer-style racing cars in the LMGTE class.

Calendar

The revised calendar for the 2020 season was announced on 3 April 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the season was shortened and the 4 Hours of Silverstone was removed from the calendar as a date could not be found.[1] Following an increase in COVID-19 cases in Spain, the Barcelona round was replaced by a second race at Paul Ricard.[2][3]

Entries

LMP2

In accordance with the 2017 LMP2 regulations, all cars in the LMP2 class used the Gibson GK428 V8 engine.[4]
