ELMS - 28/02/2017
This will be the first of two visits to Monza by the ELMS this season and the first time the series has been to Italy’s premier race circuit since 2008.
Built in 1922 Monza is one of the oldest race circuits in the world and is in fact the third oldest purpose built track after Brooklands and Indianapolis. The circuit is located north of Milan in a woodland setting and has three tracks - the 5.793-kilometre (3.600 mi) Grand Prix track, the 2.405-kilometre (1.494 mi) Junior track and a now disused 4.250-kilometre (2.641 mi) high speed oval track.
The Grand Prix track that the ELMS competitors will use includes corners that are known all around the world - the Curva Grande, the Curva di Lesmo, the Variante Ascari and the Curva Parabolica – and will provide the drivers and engineers the ultimate test as they use their time at the Official Test to prepare for the start of the season at Silverstone on Saturday 15 April.
On Tuesday 28 March track action will begin at 09h00 for the first of three test sessions on the opening day. The morning and afternoon sessions will last three hours (09h00 to 12h00 and 14h00 to 17h00) with a night session lasting two hours from 19h00 to 21h00. Day two on Wednesday 29 March will feature two 3-hour sessions starting at 09h00 and 14h00.
The European Le Mans Series will return to Monza in May for Round 2 on Sunday 14 May for the 4 Hours of Monza.
