About 2 weeks ago, we headed North and covered the Asian Le Mans Series in Sepang. The Asian Le Mans Series is part of the qualification progress to enter into the 24Hrs Le Mans.

For the Asian Le Mans Series 2013 there are 4 x 3Hrs across Asia. Namely Inje, Fuji, Zhu Hai and Sepang.

Just before I go into the main event, there are several other races supporting the main race. A little walk around the pits will give you an idea.

The AsianCup provides an affordable transition from karting to Formula Racing for racing drivers. The series runs a 20 car grid, where all the cars are identical with no performance enhancing extras and this would allow the driver to show their abilities during the races and may the best driver wins!
