The 2020 4 Hours of Portimão has been moved forward by one week and will now be held from 16-18 October (and not, as previously planned and announced 23-25 October).
No reason has been announced for the date change but with the 2020/21 FIA WEC calendar yet to be announced, the avoidance of a clash might well have been a factor.
The 2020 European Le Mans Series season will start in Barcelona in March with the Official Test, followed by the first race on the 5th April. The second round will be in Monza, Italy on the 10th May. Le Castellet will held the third round of the season on the 19th July with the 4 Hours of Le Castellet, then the ELMS will race in Silverstone on the 5th September, followed by the 4 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps on the 20th September. Finally, the season will conclude in Portugal with the 4 Hours of Portimão on the 18th October.
