Asian Le Mans Series: a thrilling finale in the United Arab Emirates

The United Arab Emirates will host the last three rounds of the 2023-24 Asian Le Mans Series, where competitors will battle it out for the championship title in the LMP2, LMP3, and GT classes. Fans can keep up with the on-track action live on YouTube and Facebook.

After two rounds at the Sepang International Circuit, the Asian Le Mans Series moves to the United Arab Emirates for the final three rounds of the 2023-24 season. The series first stops at the Dubai Autodrome Circuit on Sunday 4 February before concluding, a week later, with two final rounds at the Yas Marina Circuit (10 and 11 February 2024).

Two new teams will be joining this phase of the championship. In LMP3, Australian outfit GG Classic Cars will make its début with the Ligier JS P320, while Dragon Racing will be fielding a Ferrari 296 GT3 in the GT class. The latter team is based in the United Arab Emirates and this is its first championship appearance. Its line-up includes driver Rui Andrade, who joined the Asian Le Mans Series in LMP2 in 2021, finishing third in the championship standings that year. He will be teamed with Nicola Marinangeli and Marco Pulcini.
There will also be two new entries in LMP2, with Nielsen Racing and Cool Racing fielding extra cars. The Nielsen Racing #34 Oreca 07-Gibson will be driven by Blake McDonald, Patrick Liddy and Matt Bell, while Alexandre Coigny, Vlad Lomko and Lorenzo Fluxa will share the Cool Racing #47 Oreca. Highly experienced driver Will Stevens is also gearing up for his first Asian Le Mans series race. He’ll be at the wheel of the Nielsen Racing #24 Oreca at the 4 Hours of Dubai, replacing Ferdinand Habsburg who is tied up with the Alpine Hypercar programme in the FIA WEC.
