Asian Le Mans Series Deal For Ginetta Star Robertson


Ginetta factory driver Charlie Robertson will be competing in the Asian Le Mans Series this season, sharing a Ginetta LMP3 with Ate de Jong.

Robertson’s first race programme since being formally signed to the Ginetta ranks will see him compete as part of de Jong’s own race team, PRT Racing.

The duo will contest both the three round Sprint Cup and the fourth round Endurance series, racing across China, Japan, Thailand and Malaysia.

Robertson will be reunited with LMP3 machinery, having taken the European Le Mans Series LMP3 title last season alongside Sir Chris Hoy, while it will mark de Jong’s prototype debut.

“I am delighted to confirm my 2016-2017 race programme,” said Robertson, who is a former Ginetta Junior and GT4 Supercup champion.

“To move into the Asian Le Mans Series is a fantastic progression for me as a driver. Considering the success I had in the European Le Mans Series in 2015, I’m hoping for a repeat performance in the sister series!”

All three rounds of the Sprint Cup will take place at Sepang in Malaysia, the first meeting coming at the end of May, before further meetings in August and September.

The Endurance series runs through late 2016 and early 2017, with rounds at Zhuhai and Fuji before Christmas, followed by outings at Buriram and Sepang in January.
