After a 2016/17 season which saw the Asian Le Mans Series highlights package feature as one of the most widely viewed motorsport shows in Asia, the ACO-run Series is stepping up another rung or two for 2017/18.
Record TV Exposure
The five race 2016/17 season was showcased by a package of highlights programmes reaching 145 countries with well over 340 hours of TV on 23 networks across the Asia Pacific region and beyond, far beyond the coverage previously seen of any other endurance Championship in the region.
In Asia Pacific alone, Fox International, Fox Sports (Australia), BeIn Sports, Star Sports, LeTV and Sky Sports (New Zealand) were just some of the top channels featuring Asian Le Mans Series programming for the past season with talks underway to expand that coverage for the 2017/18 season to come.
It all comes together to offer unrivalled exposure for the teams, drivers and sponsors involved in the Series.

Record Number of Cars From Asian Le Mans Series at 2017 Le Mans 24 Hours
2016/17 saw a record mixed grid of Prototype and GT race teams, unique in Asian motorsport battle not only for Championship honours but with all also keen to take one of motorsport’s most valuable prizes, an invitation for the winning teams to take part in the world’s biggest endurance race, the Le Mans 24 Hours, the week long festival of motorsport culminating in a twice around the clock race in front of a quarter of a million trackside spectators, broadcast live across the globe.
A record 9 cars from teams that contested the 2016 Asian Le Mans Series were invited to take part in the 2017 Le Mans 24 Hours, an opportunity that no other race series in the region can offer. Several will be in real contention for class wins, a major step for Asian motorsport.
