Set up begins at Circuit Paul Ricard
ELMS teams are preparing the cars for this weekend’s 4 Hours of Le Castellet.
Today is set up day at the Circuit Paul Ricard and the teams arrived promptly this morning to begin setting the garages and preparing the cars for this weekend’s 4 Hours of Le Castellet, round 4 of the 2015 European Le Mans Series.
We went out onto the roof of the pit building to record a series of timelapse videos over a 2-hour period to show how quickly an empty paddock is transformed into a workspace for the European Le Mans Series.
