Shanghai out of the AsLMS calendar

After announcing an initial calendar for the 2015-2016 Asian Le Mans Series season, as part of a reformulation plan for the championship, the competition officials published a change in the calendar, which sees the Chinese round being chopped off of the plans.

The second round of the series, planned to be held at Shanghai on October 31st, ahead of the FIA World Endurance Championship Chinese race, will be replaced by another race at Sepang, Malaysia, to be held on November 8th. Length of the race initially changes too, as the race will be a three hours one, instead of the planned two hours of racing. The given reason for the change is that problems with track time would ruin the plans for the race.

There’s no confirmed entries announced at the moment, but full season entrants can make their registration until August 15th, with a discount in the fees until June 22nd.
