Asian Le Mans Round2 At Fuji Sees Just 20 Cars At The Grid
Round 2 of the 2013 Asian Le Mans Series, called the ‘3 Hours of Fuji’ will have only 20 race cars on the grid. Compared to the recent MMER 2013 grid, this is rather disappointing. Still, it will be great racing at the Fuji Speedway. To compliment the race, there will also be racing from the Lamborghini Super Trofeo, IP, 8 Beat, Freescale and Karting.
All the teams and cars from Round 1 from Inje, Seoul will be present, including LM P2 winners China’s KCMG, France’s OAK Racing, GTE winners Japan’s Taisan Ken Endless, and GTC winners Italy’s AF Corse. In addition 11 SUPER GT GT300 cars will compete in a separate SGT class. The SGT class includes all of the top-5 teams in the current SUPER GT GT300 season: TEAM MUGEN, R&D SPORT, OKINAWA-IM RACING with SHIFT, GAINER, and LEON RACING.
After successfully completing a thrilling first round Asian LMS organisers are looking forward to what promises to be a hotly contested weekend of racing at this world-renowned racetrack in the foothills of Mount Fuji. With a significant rise in number of entries, and the high-profile of motorsports in Japan, the series is taking very positive steps forward in promoting endurance racing in Asia, in only its first season.
