Driver crews confirmed within TF Sport ahead of opening round of Asian Le Mans Series next week

Wednesday, November 22, 2023

Consistency and familiarity will prove invaluable for the two Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3 powered crews due to take part in the opening round of the 2023-24 Asian Le Mans Series next week in Sepang.

The D’Station Racing team were one of the first to declare their intentions to return to the ACO rules series this season and today’s news see them confirming their 2023 World Endurance Championship crew of Satoshi Hoshino, Tomonobu Fujii and Casper Stevenson within their #77 car who will again run with the support of TF Sport.

Following that, we saw TF Sport confirm that their 2023 European Le Mans driver line up of John Hartshorne, Ben Tuck and Jonny Adam within the red #95 entry with Tuck getting his first taste of the series which will this year run in Sepang, Dubai and Abu Dhabi as part of a five-round series which starts next week in Sepang.

Unfortunately again too early in the life cycle of an expectant new race car, these two teams will compete within the current Vantage GT3 specification of car having both raced together this season within the Vantage GTE version.

We were originally told of three such returning AMR powered crews into this year’s Series, but the Viper Niza Racing team have since elected to run with their LMP3 chassis this year instead.

Twenty-three GT3’s help to make up the combined LMP2/LMP3/GT3 grid of thirty-nine cars expected for the first two four-hour races of the season which will run over the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd of December 2023 before moving across to Dubai for round three on the 4th of February 2024 before the short flit over to Abu Dhabi for the deciding double header over the weekend of the 10/11th February.
