We are very happy to support them and wish the team every success on the track.”

The European Le Mans Endurance Series commences with an official two day test at The Circuit Paul Ricard at Le Castellet, near Marseille, followed by the official race weekend at same circuit.  

The series continues with races at the following locations:-  May – Monza, Italy  July – Redbull Ring, Austria  August – Silverstone, UK  September – Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium  October – Portimao, Portugal

Stewart Cox, Team Principal of the Algarve Pro Racing Team added: “Algarve Pro Racing is delighted to have Pinnacle on board as one of its main financial partners for 2018. We hope for a long and fruitful relationship for the next coming years and are sure we can drive to the same success on the track that Pinnacle delivers in the sports betting world.”

The news of Pinnacle’s venture into sports sponsorship follows on from the operator’s relaunch of its dedicated ‘eSports Hub’ which it hopes will help it become the leading destination in eSports betting.
