Eurasia Motorsport and Ecurie Ecosse/Nielsen Racing have both joined the Asian Le Mans Series with entries in the LMP3 class.

The news comes following United Autosports’ four-car commitment to the four-round championship on Wednesday.

Eurasia will run an LMP3 car, likely its Ligier JS P3 Nissan, for Nobyua Yamanaka and Aidan Read and is also evaluating an LMP2 entry with its Ligier JS P2 Nissan.

The team won the Asian Le Mans LMP3 title in 2015-16 and currently runs programs in Asian Formula Renault, China Endurance Series and the F3 Asian Championship.

In addition, Ecurie Ecosse/Nielsen has revealed plans to run a pair of Ligier LMP3 cars in the championship.

It is currently fielding entries in the European Le Mans Series, Michelin Le Mans Cup and LMP3 Cup Championship.

Team regular Colin Noble is set to be part of the lineup although the UK-based team is in talks with several other drivers to complete the roster.

“We intend the effort to be a two-car team, and are talking to several of our current customers, some additional names, and are still keen to talk to others,” said Team Principal David Thompson.

“We would particularly welcome hearing from Bronze and Silver-ranked drivers from Asia.

““The LMP3 class has proven to be a real success for the team and our customers. We know how to win and our ambitions are to take the team and some of our current drivers, and some new customers, to the next level.”
