The Circuit: Close to the Atlantic coast around 20 miles from Lisbon, the Estoril circuit was created in 1972, but has undergone many transformations since then. It has a rather unusual configuration: after a long straight stretch there are some very technical moves. This requires a car, which can adapt to a range of conditions with good high speed, as well as good road handling in the bends.
-Distance (miles): 2613
The car: Entirely designed and built by the Onroak Automotive team, this LM P2 race prototype is the result of a lot of thought and hard work and they have come up with an efficient performer.
