The opening round of the 2020/21 Asian Le Mans Series season at Suzuka has been pushed back a week.
The race will be held on November 29th 2020 at the Japanese circuit to “avoid clashing with the Macau Grand Prix and to allow for changes made to the Japanese motorsport calendar”.

Currently, the series’ trip to Suzuka (for the first time) is the only confirmed round of the 2020/21 season at this point. DSC expects the full calendar to feature four races once again.
The only other known is that the series will head back China next season, though no circuit has been specified. The past two seasons the Shanghai International Circuit has played host to the opening race. The last time another circuit in China featured on the calendar was 2017-18 when the series travelled to Zhuhai for the first round.
“China will remain on our calendar next season and is a very important part of our series”, the Asian Le Mans Series twitter account posted last month.
