AAI received two auto invites for the twice-around-the-clock French endurance classic due to their participation in the Asian Le Mans Series, where it swept the GT class championship with GT3 machinery.
But with those cars not legal at Le Mans, the team has reached out to veteran Belgian outfit ProSpeed for assistance, which is expected to supply a pair of Porsche 911 GT3 RSRs for the race.
“We reached an agreement with AAI last week,” Penders told Endurance-Info. “We are evaluating various possibilities to form two teams with drivers from around the world. Two Taiwanese are already confirmed.”
It’s understood AAI will have its own management in Le Mans, with drivers Jun-San Chen and Han-Chen Chen already confirmed as the two nominated drivers for the effort.
