Barcelona LeMans 2023
 One of the benchmark endurance championships is back! The European Le Mans Series will start its season at the Circuit, thus opening the 2023 season of the world championship track with the official practice sessions and the first race of the year. With a very complete programme, there is no doubt that the highlight will be the 4H of Barcelona, a race that will feature a large grid with the prototype (LMP2, LMP3) and GT (LMGTE) categories. From 21 to 23 April, endurance enthusiasts should not miss the sporting event, as it will also reveal all the changes to the championship and begin to define the favourites for the championship crown. The event will also be attended by the Le Mans Cup and Ligier European Series.

The European Le Mans Series (ELMS) is a sports car endurance racing series that takes place across Europe. It was founded in 2004 and is organized by the Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO), the same organization that oversees the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans race. The ELMS consists of a series of races, usually held over a 4-hour or 6-hour period, in which teams compete in different classes of sports cars. The series features various types of race cars, including Le Mans prototypes (LMP) and grand tourer (GT) cars. The ELMS provides an opportunity for teams and drivers to compete at a high level of motorsport in Europe, and it serves as a stepping stone to the World Endurance Championship (WEC) and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
