The “Le Mans Prototype 2” (LMP2) class is reserved exclusively for privateer teams independent of constructors and/or engine suppliers. In the Asian Le Mans Series, only the previous generation, (specifically those meeting pre-2017 regulations) of cars are eligible to run to allow new and existing teams easier access to the top level of competition in the Series. These cars are identified by blue numbers on the car.
Launched in 2015, this is the newest category of junior sports-prototype for endurance racing, LMP3. This Class is the first step on the ladder before moving up to the LMP2 and ultimately LMP1 in the FIA WEC and 24 Hours of Le Mans. The cars have received much praise from both professional and amateur drivers as providing the power and aerodynamic downforce required to provide a driving experience that comes very close to that offered by the larger and faster LMP2 cars. These cars are identified by purple number plates on the side of the car.
These race cars are based on high performance cars that can be used on the open road and are available for sale normally through a dealer network of a widely recognizable manufacturer. GT3 cars are defined by a set of regulations maintained by the FIA for GT racing cars designed for use in various racing series throughout the world. The performance of all GT3 cars are regulated through a Balance of Performance. These cars are identified by orange number plates on the side of the car.
The class is open to cars that have been homologated for various one-make series around the world such as Audi R8 LMS Cup, Ferrari Challenge, Lamborghini Super Trofeo and Porsche Carrera Cup.In addition, from the start of the 2018/19 Season, teams will also be able to enter GT4 cars. The GT Cup class will be reserved for amateur drivers. These cars are identified by white number plates with black numbers on the side of the car.
