The Asian Le Mans Series has arrived in China for the penultimate round of the revived championship.
Sunday’s Three Hours of Zhuhai, however, will feature a reduced field of eight entries. Last month’s round in Fuji delivered a 20-car grid, although boosted by nearly a dozen Super GT300 entries for the Japanese round.

This weekend, it will be another two-way fight for overall honors between KCMG and OAK Racing, however, with the Hong Kong-based team utilizing an Oreca 03 Nissan leased from Murphy Prototypes.
KCMG’s Morgan-Nissan, which won the opening two rounds, will instead be used for next weekend’s FIA WEC Six Hours of Fuji.
James Winslow and Gary Thompson will be joined by Australian Jordan Oon in the No. 18 entry, while OAK boasts an all-Chinese driver lineup in Ho-Pin Tung, David Cheng and Shaun Thong in its Morgan-Judd.
Another team to switch machinery is Craft Racing, which has swapped its Aston Martin Vantage GT3 for a Ford GT. It is among five cars entered in the GTC category.
A pair of 30-minute testing sessions kicked off on-track activity in Zhuhai today, with official practice on tap for Friday.
