After missing the ELMS race in 2016 we were back at Silverstone for the full weekend and the 4 hour race proved to be dramatic to the end. Will Owen/Hugo de Saedeleer/Filipe Albuquerque (United Autosports – Ligier/Gibson) took a last gasp victory from Memo Rojas/Ryo Hirakawa/Leo Roussel (G-Drive Racing – Oreca/Gibson) who were struggling on old tyres at the end of the race. Dennis Andersen/Anders Fjordbach (High Class Racing – Dallara/Gibson) completed the podium. In LMP3 John Falb/Sean Rayhall (United Autosports – Ligier/Nissan) took victory with the GTE victory going to Salih Yoluc/Euan Hankey/Nicki Thiim (TF Sport – Aston Martin Vantage V8).
Supporting the ELMS were the three European Formula 3 races. The first of which was won by Lando Norris (Carlin), followed up by a victory for Joel Eriksson (Motopark) in race two with the Callum Ilott (Prema Powerteam) taking the third race.
