Provisional 2005 Le Mans Endurance Series Calendar Released

In a reversal of the 2004 schedule, the second full season of LMES competition will get underway with the 1000km of Spa, 16-17 April.

The championship will then move to Monza for round two, 9-10 July.

Following the success of last year's Festival of Le Mans, the British leg of the season will again take place 13-14 August.

Round four is set for the Nurburgring, 3-4 September.

The four races already pencilled are likely to be joined by a fifth date in October.
