The French squad, which claimed victory in the European Le Mans Series season-ending Four Hours of Estoril, is understood to instead focus its effort on the World Touring Car Championship, Porsche Carrera Cup and the new LMP3 category for next year.

Mark Goddard’s Eurasia squad, regulars in the Asian Le Mans Series, are set for an ELMS campaign with the ex-SLR chassis. Drivers have yet to be announced for the effort.

Eurasia plans to also return to the newly restructured Asian LMS next year, although its Asian-based Oreca chassis is understood to be shipping to Europe for the short-term.
