A total of 13 cars are provisionally entered for next month’s Asian Le Mans Series season-opener at Fuji Speedway, the kick-off of the new-look championship under the ACO’s control.

The two-hour race from the historic Japanese circuit on Oct. 9-10 will be in support of the FIA World Endurance Championship.


Eurasia Motorsport and Race Performance have each entered Oreca 03 cars in LMP2, with the new-for-2015 LMP3 class to debut with three entries.

The Fuji round will mark the competition debut of the ADESS-03, with Team AAI set to field a pair of the German prototypes, alongside the new DC Racing team with a Ligier JS P3.

Seven cars are entered in GT, which features all-GT3 machinery for the Japanese round.

Ferrari, Audi, McLaren and BMW are all represented, with star drivers including Dirk Mueller, Rob Bell, Pierre Kaffer and Rui Aguas listed to compete.

A single GT-Am entry, for KCMG team principal Paul Ip, is also entered.

Additional entries are expected in the three remaining rounds, including two Ligier JS P3s from EuroInternational, as well as as Algarve Pro Racing’s Ligier JS P2 Nissan, which is completing the European Le Mans Series season.
