World SimSports Can-Am LMP3 Challenge

LMP3 cars were introduced as a cost-effective way for teams to participate in prototype racing – both for sprint events and endurance.

They have proved so wildly popular the LMP3 spec series are now taking place around the world.

Now you can find out what makes these cars so exciting – welcome to the World SimSports Can-AM LMP3 Challenge.

The Car

The Norma M30 is an LMP3-spec sports prototype. The car is built by French constructor Norma Auto Concept and designed by company co-founder Norbert Santos. The Norma M30 won the 2017 Michelin Le Mans Cup in its debut year entered by DKR Engineering.

Powered by a Nissan 5.0l V8 engine producing 420 BHP it weighs a mere 900kg. This makes for some fun and fast racing at some iconic circuits.

Speaking of Iconic Circuits…

…We will be racing on circuits with long histories in motorsport all across the North American continent = where we can reminisce about the heady days of Can-Am.

Daytona – there is no more classic “roval” than Daytona. Host of the world famous 24 hour race.

Road Atlanta – Home of the insta-classic Petit Le Mans. For the third year in a row, it will also host a round of the 24 hours of LeMons with the Yokohama Coldlanta 500 in December.

Mosport – Since 1961 this Canadian circuit (now known by the rather boring name of Canadian Tire Motorsport Park) has hosted everything – Formula 1, Can-AM, Indycar, NASCAR, Superbikes and  sportscars.

Road America – This track at Elkhart Lake is one of the few in the world still using its original configuration. It plays host to NASCAR and Indycar and has hosted some form of sportscar event every year since it opened in 1955.

Virginia International Raceway – This multi-configuration track first opened in 1957, and was revived in 2000 after being closed for 16 years. It hosts a sportscar round and many member events.

Mid-Ohio – Another classic. Although designed in 1962 for sportscar racing, Mid-Ohio is also a regular fixture for NASCAR and Indycar rounds, and always delivers exciting racing.
