GT3 Title Fight in Portimão

With the LMP3 Driver and Team titles decided in favour of Jean Glorieux, Alex Toril and DKR Engineering in Belgium last month, all eyes will be on the battle for GT3 honours in Portugal for the season finale on Sunday 22nd October.

There are two teams and three drivers in contention with double race winners Emanuele Busnelli and Fabio Babini in the no46 Ebimotors Lamborghini Huracan holding a 7 point advantage over Spa race winner Lee Mowle in the no7 Lee Mowle Mercedes AMG.  Mowle’s teammate Phil Keen had to miss the race in Belgium so he cannot win the drivers crown in Portugal.

If the Mercedes wins from pole position then Lee Mowle would be crowned champion.  If the no46 Lamborghini takes pole position but finishes second behind the no7 Mercedes then the Italian team and crew would be crowned champions by just one point. 

Of course the no7 Lee Mowle Mercedes needs to finish ahead of the no46 Ebimotors Lamborghini but anything less than a win would mean the British team’s chances are diminished.  A second place finish for the Mercedes would mean the no46 Lamborghini could finish fourth and still claim the title if neither team took the extra point for pole position.

Whatever happens it is going to be a fascinating battle to see who will become the second ever Michelin Le Mans Cup GT3 champions.
