Also in 2023 the Asian Le Mans Series will maintain the same format of four races, from which three guests will come out for the 24h of Le Mans.
As happened already this year, the series will visit the Dubai Autodrome twice and the Yas Marina Circuit twice, on which 4h events will be held.
The first is scheduled in Dubai on 11 February 2023, followed the next day by the second, then we move to Abu Dhabi for the two races on 18 and 19 February.
The choice to stay in the United Arab Emirates is due to the problems currently in place with intercontinental flights, a consequence of the Coronavirus pandemic which does not leave much room for action and forecast.
This is why the organizers of ALMEM and SRO Motorsports Group preferred not to schedule other races in Asia, in order to then have to review the plans in progress, but maintaining a format that already in 2022 had had an excellent response from participants with 37 cars of 27 teams entered.
As for the invitations to the 91st edition of the 24h of Le Mans, scheduled for 10-11 June 2023, the winners of the LMP2, LMP3 and GT Classes will go to the Circuit de la Sarthe, with the possibility of expanding the seats if the number of subscribers should be large.
Finally, all ALMS competitors will use the Excellium Racing 100 renewable petrol supplied by TotalEnergies, the same one that has been used this season for FIA WEC and ELMS.
