Asian Le Mans Series swaps China for Sepang

The Asian Le Mans Series has switched its proposed round in China with a new event at Sepang, with a Chinese round being pushed back to the 2016/17 calendar.

The series was supposed to be racing in Shanghai on November 1, but will now stage a three-hour race at Sepang in Malaysia on November 8 instead.

That means the remaining events on the 2015/16 are Fuji (October 10-11), Sepang (November 7-8), Buriram in Thailand (January 8-10), and another three-hour race at Sepang (January 23-24).

China will return to the calendar for the 2016/17 season.

“With this change made in total partnership with the teams, the series is now gearing up to start the second phase of its revitalisation plan,” said Cyrille Taesch Wahlen, Asian Le Mans Series Operations Director.

“Our ambition is that the Asian Le Mans Series soon becomes the synonym for Endurance Racing for Asia.”
