In 2017 the ELMS season finale moved from the Portuguese circuit at Estoril to the south of the country to the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve. The Autódromo Internacional do Algarve is a 4.692 km (2.915 mi) race circuit located in Portimão, in the south of Portugal. Construction was completed in just seven months in October 2008, with the circuit hosting its first event a month later.
In August 2009 the Le Mans Series visited the new track, the teams and drivers competing in the 1000km do Algarve. For the past three seasons the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve has provided the stage for the dramatic conclusion to the ELMS season and will undoubtably do so again in 2020.
The 2020 ELMS season finale will take place in Portugal on October!
