The Provisional entry list for the third round of the 2015/ 2016 Asian Le Mans Series is out.
The race takes place at Chang International Circuit, Buriram Thailand and will mark the first appearance there for LMP machinery.
The entry has a familiar feel from Round two, the hoped for 20 car total has not been delivered but there is quality in each of the classes.
LMP2 sees the fourth car arrive courtesy of Eurasia’s ex ELMS Oreca 03R, now liveried in bright yellow KFC colours for Jagony Ayam. Indonesian driver Sean Galael stars with Italian Antonio Giovinazzi.
In LMP3 both of the Team AAI Adess LMP3s are listed, here’s hoping Stephane Chosse and co have managed to develop solutions for the issues that have plagued the wall proportioned little LMP3s thus far. Alex Kapadia and Ollie Hancock are again listed in the 89 car.
The only major change int he GT class is the Absolute Racing #5 Audi, for Adderrly Fong, Alessia Picariello and Jeffrey Lee is now listed as a new 2016 car. If that emerges it will be the first time the new version of the R8 has raced in an ACO sanctioned event.
The 3 Hours of Thailand meeting gets underway on 9-10 January
