2006 is over! Bring on 2007 !

Third season, five races and averaging more than forty cars on each starting grid. The Le Mans Series has certainly found its place in the motor racing world.

Created with the Automobile Club de l'Ouest in 2004, the races of the last three years have given rise to the notoriety and credibility of the series to which the 24 Hours of Le Mans have entrusted their heritage.

Turkey, Belgium, Germany, England and Spain, as well as official testing on the French circuit of Le Castellet, the competitors of Le Mans Series this year once again travelled Europe, more motivated and more enthusiastic than ever, fiercely contesting the four categories yet with the utmost respect for the traditional values of endurance racing. Epitomising this were Pescarolo Sport and Autorlando Sport who, despite already being assured of the title in their respective category still raced to win, providing a magnificent spectacle for the final race of the season.

The much anticipated calendar for the 2007 season is so far here: 5 races, 5 destinations and 5 tracks appreciated as much by the drivers as by the fans of the series. Traditionally, the Official Testing will take place on the Paul Ricard HTTT circuit on the 25th and 26th of March.

Once again we have the classic rounds of the Series: the 1000km at both the Nurburgring and Spa, which have become firmly established in the Le Mans Series programme, as well as Monza and Silverstone (absent from the 2006 calendar) which will respectively launch and close the season.

The Spanish experience at Jarama was more than convincing and the Le Mans Series is once again making its way to Spain in 2007. It is the ultra modern infrastructure of the circuit at Valencia, a fast track renowned for its motorbike races, which will welcome the Iberian round of the season on the 4th, 5th and 6th of May next year.

But...

A sixth venue is considered outside Europe. To be confirmed or not by the end of the year.

Peugeot are back in endurance racing, challenging the supremacy of Audi in the discipline. Pescarolo Sport are once again determined to prove that they are not afraid to take on the giants. With all this in addition to the arrival of numerous new challengers, the 2007 season will doubtless be even more attractive and competitive.

Prize Giving Evening
The Prize Giving Evening will take place on the 9th of December at the Automobile Club de France, Place de la Concorde, Paris
