Eurasia Close In On Asian Le Mans Series Squad

One seat available in GT class Aston Martin, testing going well in LMP3

Eurasia Motorsport is in full flow with preparations for what should be a two-car Asian Le Mans Series entry for the coming season.

The team were testing last week at Sepang in with their Ligier JS P3 with Nobuya Yamanaka and Aidan Read driving.

The pairing has now raced at Shanghai in the first round of the China Endurance Series, tested for two days at Buriram and now 4 days at Sepang, “all to prepare Nobuya for the season ahead,” says Team Principal Mark Goddard. “He now knows all three of these circuits well in a P3 and has also raced many times at Fuji so we are pretty confident he is as well prepared as possible.”

The team also tested their Aston Martin Vantage GT3 with Pasin Lathouras doing set up work (though the Blancpain regular is unable to race in Asian Le Mans due to business commitments).

The car though was putting in competitive times, a potential boost for the team who are looking for a third driver to complete the GT class squad alongside a currently signed pairing of experienced and competitive Bronze and Silver drivers.

“There is a seat still available,” said Goddard. “And with the numbers looking very encouraging for the season the demand for a seat in a competitive car, in a class where an automatic entry to Le Mans is on offer, is going to be interesting!”

Interested drivers should contact Mark as soon as possible!
