The 2017 European Le Mans Series season was the thirteenth season of the Automobile Club de l'Ouest's (ACO) European Le Mans Series.

Regulations[edit]

The 2017 season sees new regulations regarding the LMP2 class introduced.[2] Teams are able to choose from four different chassis constructors: Dallara, Onroak Automotive (Ligier), Oreca and a joint-venture between Riley Technologies/Multimatic. Gibson Technology is the exclusive engine supplier for the class, with all cars equipped with a 4.2-litre, normally-aspirated V8 engine, producing approximately 600hp. Cosworth Electronics is also the exclusive electronics supplier.

The aim of the new regulations is to ensure long-term success for the category with a reduction in costs and the guarantee of stable regulations.[2]
