Created by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, the Asian Le Mans Series Championship symbolizes the Spirit of Le Mans in Asia. It carries the same shared passions for creating world class endurance racing, accessible to all, and is the perfect springboard to rise up the ACO racing ladder to the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Offering the region’s only direct pathway into a World Championship for both Prototype and GT race cars, the Asian Le Mans Series also offers four invitations to the world’s most prestigious endurance race – the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The Asian Le Mans Series is a four round Championship featuring races of four hours in length. The 2018/19 season saw the Series visit the Shanghai International Circuit in China, Fuji Speedway in Japan, Buriram Chang International Circuit in Thailand and the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia.


The Asian Le Mans Series features a mix of both prototype and GT cars racing together in a format that is synonymous with Le Mans racing. In the Spirit of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the series features 4-hour endurance races with driving duties shared by both professional and amateur drivers. Eligible cars include LMP2, LMP3, GT3 and GT Cup. The 2018/19 season saw the introduction of an amateur class within LMP2.


The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the jewel in the ACO’s crown; it is the race that everyone wants to win. The four invitations to the 2020 running of the iconic 24 Hours of Le Mans race will be awarded to Asian Le Mans Series entries in the same way they were for the 2018/19 season.

The winners of the LMP2, LMP2 AM Trophy, LMP3 and GT classes will each receive an invitation to compete in the iconic race. The first runner up in the GT class will receive an invitation to join the Road to Le Mans round held as a part of the 24 Hours of Le Mans weekend, should they not receive an entry in the main race.

*Invitations are subject to a minimum of four entries in the class, in which case the Asian Le Mans Committee reserves the right to award this invitation to another competitor.
