2011 Le Mans Series
Previous: 2010 Next: 2012

The 2011 Le Mans Series was the eighth season of the Automobile Club de l'Ouest's Le Mans Series. The series began on 3 April with the 6 Hours of Castellet and ended after five rounds on 25 September. It is a series for Le Mans Prototype and Grand Touring style cars broken into 4 classes. LMP1, LMP2 and FLM are retained from last year, while GT1 is removed, and GT2 split into GTE-Pro and GTE-Am.[1]

With the launch of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup, several LMP1 teams left the Le Mans Series, such as Peugeot Sport, Audi Sport, Aston Martin Racing and Oreca. This was the last season of the LMP1 in the championship.

ScheduleEdit

On 29 November 2010, the ACO announced a 5-race calendar, plus an official test session at Circuit Paul Ricard.[2] The initial calendar included a race in Portugal, with the circuit to be announced. Three events; Spa, Imola, and Silverstone; will also be part of the 2011 Intercontinental Le Mans Cup calendar.[3]

ChampionshipsEdit

Points are awarded to all race finishers, with unclassified entries failing to complete 70% of the race distance or entries failing to reach the finish not earning championship points. One bonus point is awarded for winning pole position (denoted by bold), and a further bonus is awarded (denoted by parenthesis). Entries which change an engine prior to the required two race minimum are penalized two points, with a four-point penalty for every subsequent engine change.
