An Italian Dress Rehearsal For Algarve Pro Before The 24 Hours Of Le Mans
For Algarve Pro, the 4 Hours of Imola, round 2 of the 2016 European Le Mans Series season, was the last event before the team's Le Mans debut.

By Speed Factory´s race came to an early end when a sudden loss of power forced the Ligier-Nissan JSP3 LMP3 driven by Tom Jackson, Jesús Fuster and Álvaro Fontes out of race. The trio of by Speed Factory ran in the top ten in the first half of the race after a two-hour stint carried out by Fuster.
The challenge of the greatest endurance race in the world, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, is simple: whoever goes furthest wins. However, any suggestion that this contest is merely two laps of the clock is wide of the mark. When the 24-hour Rolex countdown clock begins on Saturday 18 June 2016 at 15:00, the teams will begin their quest to conquer the unrelenting 13.629-kilometre (8.46-mile) Circuit de la Sarthe, combining endurance with speed, while racing not only each other, but also their greatest adversary – time. It is this constant endeavour to defy physical limits and boundaries that binds Rolex so closely together with endurance racing at Le Mans and the FIA World Endurance Championship.
