Race vehicles are built to generate an immense amount of downforce to keep them on the track, meaning that they are not usually the tail-happy, tire punishers. However, Filipe Albuquerque of the United Autosport team decided to take his LMP2 race car to the streets of Coimbra instead of a race track.

In the short film, Albuquerque does some elevens, a lot of donuts, and cruises around town with his Ligier to promote the team’s participation in the WEC and the ELMS series. United Autosport finished 4th in the ELMS series and is currently 6th with two podiums in Fuji and Shanghai. Albuquerque will be racing in this weekend’s BAPCO 8 Hours of Bahrain as well.

At the end of the day…

The Ligier driving around the streets of Coimbra made me think, “What if WEC raced on street circuits?” Obviously, both F1 and GT3 occasionally race on street circuits like Monaco and Macau, so why not WEC? As a die-hard WEC fan, I would definitely love to see the new Hypercar class racers zooming around Monaco. What do you think? Vote below!
