Eurointernational is set to make a return to top-level prototype racing after a 20-year absence, with the Italian team outlining plans to campaign a pair of Ligier JS P3s in the Asian Le Mans Series later this year.
The Antonio Ferrari-led operation returns to sports car racing competition this weekend in the Italian Sport Prototype Championship at Magione with a Ligier JS 53 EVO II for Giorgio Mondini.
It will serve as a precursor to a likely effort in Asia with Onroak Automotive’s newly launched LMP3 car, alongside an expanded effort in the national championship.
“We are working hard to finalize a possible debut next in October in the Asian Le Mans Series with two Ligier JSP3s LMP3, one of them just for Giorgio,” Ferrari said.
“Our presence in the Italian Sport Prototype Championship is not just a preparation for the international program: we trust in this series and we are already working to field another Ligier for the second half of the season.”
Known for its success with Ferrari 333 SPs in both Europe and North America, Eurointernational has since focused its efforts primarily in the European open-wheel development series.
It would mark the first confirmed LMP3 effort for the Asian Le Mans Series, which kicks off at Fuji Speedway in October in support of the FIA World Endurance Championship round.
