ELMS 2013 Startlist+ Delta Wing/Nissan seperation

29 cars will come into the ELMS for 2013.

The series was last year  cancelled after 2 races in Paul Ricard and Donigton Park. The ACO tries a restart with the ELMS, competing 5 races around europe including a “Super Endurance Weekend” with the WEC in Silverstone, three other races with the World Series by Renault and the final in Paul Ricard with the french FFSA GT-Tour .

Good to see that the ACO is behind the ELMS, i guessed a low starterfield for this year but it seems like many teams have interes in this series, especially french private teams.

There are no LMP1 Prototypes anymore, becuase of the lack of cars that were enterd. Only LMP2, LMPC, GTE-Am and the new GTC class are in the series .  I’m looking forward to it.
