With the competitors heading to Austria for Round 3 of the 2017 Michelin Le Mans Cup the race for the titles is still wide open after two exciting races on the full 13.6km circuit at Le Mans.

The no3 DKR Engineering Norma M30 of Alexander Toril and Jean Glorieux is currently leading the LMP3 class by 10 points with 36 points gathered so far.  The team have taken pole position in all three races, with the high point coming on Saturday morning at Le Mans when Toril and Glorieux stood on the top step of the podium for the first time in 2017.

The no79 Nielsen Racing Ligier of Tony Wells and Colin Noble got the season off to a great start with a win in Monza but trouble struck the British team in Le Mans and they finished outside the top 10 in both 55-minute races after running near to the front of the field all weekend.  Currently on 26 points the team will be looking to get their season back on track in Austria after a disappointing two races in France.
