News & Notes

*Team AAI has one less entry in LMP3, but they have added a car (McLaren GT3) in the GT class. We will see a healthy ten car GT battle. I wish more teams ran cars in multiple classes.*

*Bentley Team Absolute will field two Bentley Continental GT3’s. Adderly Fong and Andrew Palmer will share one car and the drivers for the second entry should be named soon. It was previously announced that Fong and Palmer would run a full season in Pirelli World Challenge. Running an Asian Le Mans Series race is a good “tune-up” before their championship season begins.*

*Team Starspeed Racing brings a Lamborghini to the GT Am class. Great to see that the KCMG Porsche will actually have some competition this weekend.*

*It is great to see a twenty car entry list for the 3 Hours of Malaysia. The ACO’s takeover of the Asian Le Mans Series is proving to be the greatest idea for the future of this series. I really hope that we will see at least 25 entries next series. Wouldn’t it be a great idea if some IMSA GT Daytona teams ran an Asian Le Mans Series event during their offseason? Just a thought that I am putting out there!*
