High Class Racing on Asian adventure

We primarily know High Class Racing from the European racing circuits, but they now expand to the east.

When the Asian Le Mans Series 2019/20 starts on 24 November, the Danish team plans to enter two cars at the Shanghai International Circuit.

The team has participated in the European Le Mans Series with a Dallara P217 Gibson for the last two seasons, and has rented out chassis’ to other teams. They will now ship two of those cars to Asia, where they will race in the four races in the LMP2 category.

The rules open up for the current cars, who will be able to compete for a 24 Hours of Le Mans ticket for 2020.

High Class Racing has already entered the European Le Mans Series 2019, where their entry was confirmed last week. They have bought a brand new ORECA 07 Gibson for the LMP2 category, which will be piloted by Anders Fjordbach and Dennis Andersen.

Fjordbach has already had a taste of the Asian Le Mans Series, where he is currently competing with Algarve Pro Racing, alongside the two Bronze rated drivers, Chris McMurry and Mark Patterson. They still have a theoretical chance of securing a Le Mans ticket, if things go their way.

High Class Racing has sent in an entry for the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2019 too, and we will know if they have got an entry in exactly one weeks time.

The team is already looking for drivers for the Asian Le Mans Series, and hopes to get some to test and perhaps even race in the ELMS during this summer. The goal is to expand the ELMS team to a two-car team in 2020, if there are interest from potential drivers.

The Asian Le Mans Series 2018/19 finishes this weekend at the former Formula 1 circuit, Sepang, in Malaysia.
