LMP2: G-Drive Still In Charge
Round 2 winners G-Drive Racing have a slim 4-point advantage after three races over the American team United Autosports. The Russian team currently have 62 points after two second places at Silverstone and Red Bull Ring to add to their victory at Monza in May, with an additional point for pole position in Austria. Leo Roussel and Memo Rojas are leading the drivers championship, with G-Drive teammate Ryo Hirakawa in 3rd place on 43 points after missing the race at the Red Bull Ring.
The United Autosports trio of Hugo de Sadeleer, Filipe Albuquerque and Will Owen are on 58 points thanks to their victories at Silverstone and the Red Bull Ring, with a 6th place finish in Monza the reason they are trailing the Russian G-Drive team.
LMP3: All Tied at the Top
The battle for the 2017 LMP3 titles couldn’t be closer with the top two teams and drivers tied on 45 points and the third placed crew just 2 points behind.
Round 1 winners John Falb and Sean Rayhall are currently leading in the no2 United Autosports Ligier, the all American crew tied on 45 points with the no17 Ultimate crew of Jean-Baptiste Lahaye, Matthieu Lahaye and Francois Heriau but are classified in first thanks to that win at Silverstone.
The no18 M.Racing YMR crew of Alexandre Cougnaud, Antoine Jung and Romano Ricci are currently third on 43 points thanks to two podium finishes in Monza and Red Bull Ring, but like the no17 Ultimate Ligier they have yet to take a win in 2017.
LMGTE: TF Sport Still On Top
After scoring three podiums from three races, the crew of the no90 TF Sport Aston Martin Vantage – Salih Yoluc, Euan Hankey and Nicki Thiim – are currently leading the LMGTE class by 6 points. The Silverstone race winners are currently on 59 points with the Monza winning no66 JMW Motorsport team in second place on 53 points.
JMW drivers Jody Fannin and Rob Smith are also on 53 points, with Jonny Cocker in third place on 43 points due to the fact he didn’t race with his teammates in the opening race of the year at Silverstone.
Red Bull Ring race winners Duncan Cameron, Matt Griffin and Aaron Scott are in 4th place in the no55 Spirit of Race Ferrari on 38 points, 21 behind the lead Aston Martin.
Round 4 of the 2017 European Le Mans Series, the 4 Hours of Le Castellet, will take place in France on Sunday 27 August.
