The Asian Le Mans Series has again delivered an action packed race up and down the grid. With tens of thousands packing the precinct, and in what was easily the hottest race of the season with ambient temperatures reaching 34 degrees during the race, the battles on track were fierce!  

 
At the start of the race it was an Algavre Pro Racing 1-2 after a fantastic getaway from both of the team’s Bronze drivers, Ate Dirk De Jong (#24) and Christopher McMurry (#25). Phil Hanson in the Championship leading #22 United Autosports Ligier JS P2 Nissan was though able to pass them and take the lead early in the race. It was Hanson and his team mate Paul Di Resta that led most of the race before claiming their first Asian Le Mans Series race win, extending their Championship lead to 18 points. Whilst a perfectly timed pitstop when a full course yellow was called helped cement their position, the team ran without fault all weekend. 
 
The #24 Algarve Pro Racing Ligier JS P2 Judd of Harrison Newey and Andrea Pizzitola came home second, followed by Matthieu Lahaye, Jean-Baptiste Lahaye, and Francois Hériau in the #35 Panis Barthez Competition Ligier JS P2 Judd. The French team picking up its first Asian Le Mans Series podium.  
 
Nursing home the #4 ARC Bratislava Ligier JS P2 in to 4th position was Darren Burke. Due to an engine issue, Burke slowed significantly and lost third position overall to the Panis Barthez Ligier, He was though able to hold on to finish the race. The team also picking up the LMP2 AM Trophy win taking the Class Championship lead by 9 points. 
 
In LMP3 the battle was intense from the start. Once again it was Nigel Moore in the #65 Viper Niza Racing Ligier JS P3 that made a storming start to be up to 4thoutright on the opening lap. His run was cut short after hitting debris and having to hit for new tyres. This left Matt Bell in the #3 United Autosports Ligier JS P3 to pull away at the front of the LMP3 field. As the race went on, it became a battle between the sister United Autosports car, the polesitting Ligier JS P3 of Chris Buncombe, Garett Grist and Wayne Boyd and the #13 Inter Europol Competition Ligier JS P3 of Jakub Smiechowski and Martin Hippe. After being forced to pit for loose body work, the #13 dropped out of contention for the win, but fought hard to secure second position and retain the LMP3 Championship lead. They now lead the LMP3 class by 8 points. In third place after the #3 suffered a broken exhaust and got stuck in 4thgear was the #79 Ecurie Ecosse / Nielsen Racing Ligier JS P3 of Tony Wells and Colin Noble. 
 
In GT it was the #66 TianShi Racing Team Audi R8 LMS with Max Wiser that had a stunning start yet again to be comfortable leading the GT Class and running ahead of a number of the LMP3 entries early in the race. Class pole sitter, the #51 Spirit of Race Ferrari 488 GT3 dropped back to be 4th in Class in the early running.
 
1.5 hours into the race and there was a full course yellow after the #5 TF Sport Aston Martin V12 Vantage had a power steering and brake failure with Johnny Mowlem behind the wheel. The failure caused a scary moment for the Aston driver, but Mowlem did well to scrub off speed through the gravel trap making only light contact with the barrier. He would make it back to the pits where the team opted to retire the car.
 
After the first driver changes, it was GT Class Championship leader, Car Guy that continued their dominant run in the 2018/19 Season, with series newcomer and highly experienced racer, Jean Karl Vernay chasing hard in the #88 TianShi Racing Team Audi R8 LMS.
 
Once James Calado got in the #11 Car Guy Ferrari, he pulled away from Vernay in the #88 TianShi Racing Team Audi R8, and pole sitter, Alessandro Pier Guidi in the #51 Spirit of Race Ferrari 488 GT3. Despite a number of driving infringements that saw Calado receive multiple penalties, he pushed hard and ensured the Japanese team won their third race of the season to extend their lead in the Championship to 24 points.

Driver quotes:
 
LMP2 – Harrison Newey: I am very happy with pole. It came quite late in the day and took two sets of tyres to do it. In the end we had a good margin, and it went better than we thought it was going to. Really looking forward to tomorrow, and it is nice to have the one point for pole, after the woes in Shanghai. Ate will also be back in the car, so hopefully he can keep the lead, and me, and Andrea, will bring it home. 

LMP2 Am Trophy – Darren Burke: I was a little bit conservative with track limits, while on the first set of tyres. I think it was the same for everybody. The number one priority was to make sure we put a banker lap in to actually get us into the race. The second set of tyres was a chance to push a little bit harder and explore the limits of the car a little bit more. I think our race set up will be better than the qualifying set up, but it was great fun being out there. 

LMP3 – Wayne Boyd: It was really good for us, with P1. We were really hoping to get the extra point, as our last race didn’t go quite to plan for us, especially in terms of the championship. We did a first run, just to get a banker lap in, then we came in and took another set of tyres, and pushed a bit harder, and it was worth it. Very pleased.

GT – Alessandro Pier Guidi: We did a very good job on the car, it was important for us to score the point to keep the Championship alive. It will be a tough race tomorrow, with the Championship battle, but we will try our best. We have finished second twice, so we will try to win. I know it will be difficult, but we will try.

Up for grabs – four invitations to the 24 Hours of Le Mans: 
In addition to the glory of winning the outright and class championships, the teams will be fighting for an elusive invitation to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. 
 
The winners of the LMP2 and LMP3 classes will each receive an invitation to compete in the LMP2 class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2019.  New for the 2018/19 Asian Le Mans Series, there will be an added recognition for LMP2 amateur entries – not only will they be fighting for their own Championship honours, they will also be for an invitation. There will also be one invitation to race in the LM GTE Am class for the winner of the GT class.

Latest Generation LMP2 cars Eligible in 2019/20

Two years ago it was announced that, as a part of the natural evolution of the LMP2 category, the latest generation LMP2 cars will be eligible to race in the 2019/20 Asian Le Mans Series.

This will not mean the end of the older generation cars within the Series. The older generation cars will continue to be eligible within the Series, however from the 2019/20 season they will be limited to just the LMP2 Am Trophy class.

The decision was made after close consultation with the teams proved that there was demand for both the old and the new generation LMP2 cars to be run in the Series. The teams unanimously support the decision as the right way forward for the series.

As in the 2018/19 Series, there will continue to be an invitation to the 24 Hours of Le Mans on offer for both the LMP2 Championship winner, and the LMP2 AM Trophy winner.

The full details will be released as a part of the technical and sporting regulations for the 2019/20 Asian Le Mans Series.

Algarve Pro Racing win the 4 Hours of Fuji!

 

CLASS WINNERS:
LMP2 – #24 Algarve Pro Racing, Ligier JS P2 Judd / AM #4 ARC Bratislava, Ligier JS P2 Nissan
LMP3 – #3 United Autosports, Ligier JS P3 Nissan 
GT – #11 Car Guy, Ferrari 488 GT3 / AM #66 Tian Shi Racing Team, Audi R8 LMS

With very light snow falling as the grid formed up for the second round of the 2018/19 Asian Le Mans Series, the race was set to be run in very frosty conditions. The action on track however was hot right from the start!

2016/17 Champions Algarve Pro Racing are back to their winning ways, with current drivers Andrea Pizzitola and Harrison Newey claiming a hard fought victory in the 4 Hours of Fuji. 

Starting the race in the #24 Ligier JS P2 Judd, Harrison Newey took the lead into the first corner. He held the lead until a well-timed pit call from the United Autosports team saw the pole sitting #22 Ligier JS P2 Nissan with Phil Hanson behind the wheel get the jump on the #24. 

The battle between the pair continued throughout the race before a safety car period with just 30 minutes to go bunched the field up. At the restart the #24 with Andrea Pizzitola behind the wheel was just in front of Paul Di Resta in the #22 and the battle just intensified. It was Andrea and Algarve Pro Racing that held on to claim the victory, with Paul and United Autosports team in second.  

In third place, and taking the win in LMP2 Am was ARC Bratislava in a impressive comeback drive. Early in the race the #4 ARC Bratislava Ligier JS P2 dropped back after an incident saw Miro Konopka tangle with another competitor. Ling Kang put in a solid middle stint to help the team climb up the order. After the safety car, and with Darren Burke driving, they closed the gap to the class leading #23 United Autosports Ligier JS P2 Nissan. After another tight battle, Darren caught and passed the #23 to claim 3rd place outright and the LMP2 Am trophy win. 

In LMP3, just as in the Agile 4 Hours of Shanghai, it was the #65 Viper Niza Racing Ligier JS P3 of Nigel Moore that got the jump on the field again, running as high as 3rd outright in the opening stages of the race.

Ultimately the battle for the LMP3 class victory came down to the final moments of the race. After leading the class towards the end of the race thanks to a well-timed pitstop to change to slick tyres, the safety car proved to be poorly timed for Martin Hippe in the #13 Inter Europol Competition Ligier JS P3. After the race resumed, he had the #3 United Autorsports Ligier JS P3 of Kay van Berlo right on his tail. The battle between the two once the racing resumed was tight, with Kay getting the jump early, but Martin refused to give up, fighting for the position until the end of the race. 

In the end it was Kay that took the victory by just 3.5 seconds, with Martin taking second. In third place was the #79 Ecurie Ecosse / Nielsen Racing of Antony Wells and Colin Noble. The pair put in a very strong effort to come back from starting at the rear of the grid to claim the final place on the LMP3 podium.

Hometown heroes, Car Guy claimed a very popular victory in front of the Japanese fans in their #11 Ferrari 488 GT3. After contact in the opening stages of the race, the team made an unscheduled pitstop, dropping them well behind the GT field.  Takeshi Kimura, Kei Cozzolino and James Calado all drove strongly during the race, ensuring Car Guy claimed their second GT class victory from the opening two Asian Le Mans Series races. 

In second place was the #51 Spirit of Race Ferrari 488 GT3 driven by Alessandro Pier Guidi, Ozz Negri Jr and Francesco Piovanetti. They also had a challenging opening phase of the race after dropping to the back of the order, before fighting their way back, making their second place all the more impressive. 

In third place was the #66 Tian Shi Racing Team, Audi R8 LMS of Xu Wei, Max Wiser and Zhang Ya Qi. They were also the top GT Am entry.

The Asian Le Mans Series now has a month’s break now before the teams head to Thailand for the 4 Hours of Buriram on 12 January, 2019. The race there will be held on the Saturday to coincide with the very popular Children’s Day in Thailand.

Driver quotes:

#22 Phil Hanson – Qualifying went as well as we could have hoped. It is nice to finally get pole after I gave it away in Shanghai. I’ve learned from my mistakes, and it really happy it came all together. I think we have had a quick car throughout the testing, and I think we have also done a lot of work towards having a quick car in the race, so I am really looking forward to it. 

#23 Guy Cosmo – Session went well, there is more to find out there. Adjusting to the P2 car, after a number of years of not racing prototypes, we did it last year, and it went well, but this is a new endeavour, and we are finding more speed every lap. Of course, had a second crack at it, with another set of tyres, had a big lock up on my first flyer. Although I went quicker, I kind of ruined my chances of making a big gain. But looking for a solid run tomorrow, it is going to be a very, very competitive race.

#65 Nigel Moore – Session didn’t go too badly, we didn’t do a qualy sim all weekend, so it was the first time out on new tyres. I had a little lock up on the first set, so once we got a feel for them, we came in and another lot on.  In a half decent lap together, struggled with the car a little bit, but considering the time we did, I was really, really happy. As for the race, we are in the strongest position for sure.

#11 James Calado – I think the session was good, we got pole position. I am very happy for the team, Car Guy, because they really wanted it as a Japanese team, to get pole position, for their home race. I made a mistake in the first stint, and then we went on new tyres. The temperatures had dropped a lot, and it was quite tough out there in terms of grip level, but I am looking forward to the race. From pole it is always an advantage, but it is a long race. I think we have a good line-up to get a good result. 

#66 Max Wiser – We finished our qualifying session, it has been good for us, we are trying some set up changes to make the car more comfortable for the two gentleman, which is the most important thing for us.  We got fourth place overall, not very far from the other Audi, the Ferrari here is very quick. It will be a nice race, we will try our best to get overall podium, we will see.

Agile 4 Hours of Fuji – Round Two
Fuji Speedway, December 07-09 2018 

With hardly enough time to catch their breath after a thrilling start to the season, the Asian Le Mans Series teams and drivers will make their way to Japan for Round 2 this weekend. 

Located at the base of Mt Fuji, the iconic Fuji Speedway has a long and impressive motorsport history. It has also been an important part of the ACO racing calendar holding a round of the FIA WEC every year since 2012, as well as the Asian Le Mans Series since 2013.  

It is the home round for Car Guy, the team that claimed the GT Class victory in the opening round of the season, the Agile 4 Hours of Shanghai. The team is located around the corner from the circuit and are hoping the new yellow livery on their Ferrari 488 GT3 will bring them success in the 4 Hours of Fuji.  

The provisional full entry list can be found here.   

 

Kei Cozzolino -Team Manager and driver Car Guy:

“Our main target is to win in Fuji. We are not interested in finishing second or third. 
 
“In the opening round in Shanghai, we were able to win because we had some luck but on the other hand as a team we were quite strong.  
“Fuji is Car Guy’s home track and it is the perfect venue to prove our maximum potential.”
  
“第2戦富士の目標は優勝です。2位、3位には興味がありません。開幕戦の上海ではたまたまラッキーに勝てた部分もあったと思います。そして自分らの力だと思って勝てた部分もあります。それをはっきりされるのが第2戦の富士です。
我々にとってホームサーキットだからこそ優勝にこだわりたい。”  
Another driver who will be hoping for home ground advantage is Nobuya Yamanaka. Nobuya and his Eurasia Motorsport team mate Aidan Read head to the 4 Hours of Fuji fresh from a podium finish in the opening round of the Asian Le Mans Series.   

 

Nobuya Yamanaka (JPN) – Eurasia Motorsport:

“It is quite exciting and honourable to have the second race meeting of Asian Le Mans Series in Fuji Speedway for me in my home country.  
 
“The circuit is located in the beautiful scenery at the foot of the symbolic Mt. Fuji which I like as it is one of most challenging and beautiful courses in Japan. The first corner at the end of 1.4km home straight, the high speed 100R and the uphill corners in 3rd sector are all challenging.  
“I’m looking forward to the race very much and hope I can perform a little better with my hometown advantage to assist Aidan Read to bring the best result to the team Eurasia Motorsport.”
  
アジアン・ルマン・シリーズの第2戦を、12月7日~9日に、自分の国の富士スピードウエイに迎えられることはとてもエキサイティングで名誉なことです。 

富士スピードウエイは、日本の象徴である富士山の山すその美しい風景の中に位置し、日本のサーキットの中でも最高にチャレンジングで美しく私の好きなコースです。  

1.4㎞の長いホームストレートの終わりにある第1コーナー、Aコーナーから続く高速の100R、そして、第3セクターの登りのコーナーはどれもチャレンジングです  

私はこのレースをとても楽しみにしています。そして、ホームコースのアドバンテージを活かし私のチームメイトのAidan ReadをアシストしてEurasiaチームに最高の結果をもたらしたいと望んでいます。

At the end of a very tough weekend though, the TianShi Racing Team finished the race on top in the the GT AM Trophy with their #66 Mercedes AMG GT3. Prior to the race, the only track time the drivers Max Wiser and Xu Wei had was in qualifying after a problem with their original entry.

Mr. Kayson – Vice President of Agile Property Group and General Manager of the Industry -City Development Center:

“The 24 Hours of Le Mans has a nearly one hundred-year history. It is world-famous and is a hallmark and a symbol of world automobile endurance events. Alongside the FIA Formula 1 World Championship and the Indy 500, it is recognised as the most prestigious and most gruelling automobile race in the world. As a brand, its influence is indescribable.

“Currently, China has the second largest inventory of cars in the world, and in 2019 it is predicted to surpass the US. The Motorsport culture in China is on the rise, developing into an irresistible trend. In 2015, China became one of the most important motorsports markets in the world, forming an event system with a national championship event at its core complemented by a multitude of regional events.

“For Agile, the aim is to leverage our involvement in the Asian Le Mans Series to grow the Le Mans brand in the region. As the exclusive title sponsor of the 2018 Asian Le Mans Series round in Shanghai, Agile is taking its first step. The next step for Agile is to bring the ethos of the Le Mans, France model to China and build a new-model city-race track synthesis combining eco-parks, recreation & sports education, vacationing, tourism conventions, and health & liveability in one. At the core will be the motor sports industry and an “automobile+” as its extension. The selected site for this project, Baodi Jinqiao International Town, will cooperate on the town’s overall planning.”
