The Euro Touring Series returns to what for many racers is Europe’s best track, Mini Circuit “Ville de Luxembourg”. The third year the ETS has brought the best electric touring car drivers from around the world to this small country of just 1/2 a million people. Built in 1999 and 310 metres long, it is the track’s Laguna Seca corkscrew style corner which has an elevation of approximately 2-metres that makes it a circuit revered by racers across the World. Another feature of the track, which many top racers describe as a ‘drivers track’, is a 10 degree banked corner at the end of the main straight.

A driver who claimed his first ever ETS race win at the track last year, Bruno Coelho described the track as ‘quite difficult’. Commenting on the tracks signature cork screw section he added, ‘I really like it but it’s super difficult to be fast through it’. With ‘many points (around the track) to gain time’, he said its a track where ‘the driver is a bigger factor’ in terms of a getting a quick lap time. Another challenge of the track are bumps which the Xray driver said ‘you need to learn where they are so you can adjust your lines to avoid them’.
