As mentioned during the ACO press conference the dates for the two last rounds of the 2017/2018 Asian Le Mans Series have been changed as follows:
The 4th and penultimate round of the season in Buriram (Thailand) has been moved by a week and will now be held on Saturday, 13th January 2018, in order to coincide with the national Children’s day which brought a crowd of over 100,000 in 2016.
The final round of the season in Sepang (Malaysia) has been moved as well and will take place on 2nd/4th February in order not to clash with Daytona 24H. This new date will not clash with Chinese New Year which will be on 16th February in 2018.
Not only will these date changes contribute to better and more attractive Asian Le Mans Series events, they will also give teams more time after the Christmas/New Year break and between the last two rounds.
