We’re going to have a busy winter! I’m very happy to announce that I’ll be driving for United Autosports in the Asian Le Mans Series, starting in November. A great next step in my career, which will allow me to build on my experience at a frontrunning team, on very highly rated tracks.
After a great season with Eurointernational in the ELMS, I’m already looking forward to the winter. Normally, a driver doesn’t do much in the winter months but that won’t be the case for me! I’ll be driving four races in the Asian Le Mans Series for United Autosports and I’ll be sharing the car with two very talented and experienced drivers: Englishman Matt Bell and American Jim McGuire. I can learn a lot from those guys.
I couldn’t have had a better team than United Autosports. They’ve had a lot of success in the past and, among other things, two LMP3-titles in the European Le Mans Series. Driving for this team in Asia gives me lots of new opportunities and hopefully, something nice for the future. I’ll try my hardest to drive myself in the picture!
The Asian Le Mans Series consists of four races, each four hours long. We’ll be driving at Shanghai, Fuji, Buriram and Sepang. Each track is very challenging and highly rated. I’ve had the chance of looking at these tracks in the simulator already and I think we’re going to have some fun there.
It’s a little early to be having expectations for the coming winter season. I don’t know who’s going to be driving where, so it’s difficult to say what the competition will look like. What I do know, is that I’ll be driving for a very strong team, with two great drivers. Hopefully, we’ll be able to put on a good show!
The Asian Le Mans Series calendar will look like this:
- 23-25 November – Shanghai, China
- 7-9 December – Fuji, Japan
- 10-12 Januari – Buriram, Thailand
- 22-24 Februari – Sepang, Malaysia
