Asian Le Mans Series

The Asian Le Mans Series will feature five races after the series organisers announced the addition of the Shanghai International Circuit for the 2014 season.

Shanghai was scheduled to form part of the originally planned six-race inaugural season, but was cancelled when organisers decided to cancel the first two rounds of the season.

The premier class in the AsLMS will continue to be LMP2, while the new CN class will form the secondary category. The GT classes will see all GTE, GT3 and GT300 cars run together under a balance of performance managed by the ACO. GT Am will continue to be used to attract gentleman drivers and cup cars.

The top LMP2 car at the end of the season will receive an invitation to the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans, while 1st and 2nd in GT will receive an invitation to compete in the GTE class.

Finally, in order to help reduce costs for the season, the maximum number of people allowed to be involved in tyre changes will be two per car.
