United Autosports and Eurasia Motorsport in the Asian Le Mans Series this winter

Two teams who just competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the LMP2 class - United Autosports and Eurasia Motorsport - have confirmed their participation in the 2018-2019 Asian Le Mans Series season.

In the wake of the LMP2 podium finish claimed by two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Juan Pablo Montoya, Hugo de Sadeleer and Will Owen, the United Autosports team has decided to take part in the Asian Le Mans Series in LMP3 with two Ligier JS P3s and in LMP2 with two Ligier JS P2s (the new JS P217 is not yet eligible to enter the Asian championship).

The American team founded by McLaren CEO Zak Brown and Richard Dean has yet to name its driver line-ups, but we do know Eurasia Motorsport's Ligier JS P3 will be shared by rookie Nobuya Yamanaka and Aidan Read in the LMP3 class. Mark Goddard's team - whose Ligier JS P217 went unranked at the 86th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans for insufficient distance - is looking to field the Ligier LMP2 participant in the 2017-2018 Asian Le Mans Series once again.
