Eurasia Motorsport amalgamates world class driver development, international engineering excellence, local knowledge and the highest standards of preparation, and boasts broad and wide-ranging foundations in single-seaters and Pro-Am sportscar racing, which will stand it in good stead during an extensive programme of competition in 2015 that currently consists of campaigns in the European Le Mans Series (ELMS), Asian Le Mans Series (AsLMS) and Formula Masters China Series (FMCS).
PRO-AM SPORTSCAR RACING
EUROPEAN LE MANS SERIES (ELMS)
The European Le Mans Series (ELMS) is a European sportscar championship run by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) that is modelled on the world famous 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race.
Originally titled the Le Mans Endurance Series, the championship was renamed in 2012, reusing a name previously utilised by the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA).
The ELMS is open to both prototypes and GT-spec machinery and visits Europe’s greatest motorsport venues, with team Champions and runner-ups receiving an automatic entry to the following year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans
ASIAN LE MANS SERIES (AsLMS)
The Asian Le Mans Series (AsLMS) was resurrected by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) in 2013 as a successor to the now defunct Japan Le Mans Challenge.
In 2009, the inaugural AsLMS event, featuring two 500km races, was held in Okayama, Japan and was followed by a 1000km race in Zhuhai, China in 2010, before the ACO announced at the 2012 Le Mans 24 Hours that it would be reviving the Asian Le Mans Series in 2013.
Modelled on the American and European Le Mans Series’, it’s open to both prototypes and GT-spec machinery and tours Asia’s greatest motorsport venues, while embodying the spirit and passion of Le Mans itself.
FORMULA MASTERS CHINA
The Formula Masters China Series (FMCS), launched in 2013 as part of the Volkswagen Group’s ‘SportsCar Project China’ scheme, tours the Asia-Pacific region’s greatest circuits in China, Japan, Indonesia and Malaysia.
An enticing formula developed for captivating racing, also ensures that only the most talented racers come to the fore; competitors are provided with equal equipment in terms of engine, chassis, fuel and tyres and, with teams limited to minor setup changes, driver ability is key to success.
