Le Mans: The race had actually been won by Pierluigi Martini who was disqualified afterwards because his team had worked on the car after the race had been suspended after 43 of 58 laps, followed by a re-start. This disqualification gained the points for Pirro - who had come in on 2nd position - which were necessary to become the overall second in the championship.

Pirro participated in the Macao Formula 3 Grand Prix for the Marlboro Theodore Racing Team for the third year in a row.

Formula 1 tests for Benetton in a Benetton-BMW B186 Turbo

After Emanuele had already test driven one of Bernie Ecclestone's Brabhams in 1985, he was asked to test a Benetton-BMW B186 at Donington in 1986. The car's set up was done by Teo Fabi, who drove for Benetton together with Gerhard Berger at that time. Pirro took the wheel and was faster than Fabi, who was an experienced F1-pilot, at the first attempt.
