Atlantic Racing Team brings Wolf back to AsLMS



Asian Le Mans Series boss Cyrille Taesch-Wahlen stated that even though the very first race of the 2015-2016 season started with a 13 car grid, which is somewhat reasonable for the series’ standards, new teams and cars would join for the other rounds. In fact, the grid boost started early, with a new team already confirmed for the next race.

Atlantic Racing Team returns to the series as well the Wolf GB08 model that they will use in the CN category, after their single race participation at the 3 Hours of Inje in 2014, on South Korea, where the team in fact participated from the practice session, but the combination of a crash with the Chinese Python Ferrari 458, gearbox damage and lack of spare parts meant the Canadian team had to pull out of the race, which had only six cars in the grid. The rest of the championship featured a Wolf GB08, but the car was raced under the Team Avelon Formula banner.

Differently from their first participation in the AsLMS, where Atlantic Racing Team’s opposition was only a Ligier JS53 from CRAFT-Bamboo Racing, fierce competitors will feature the group of LMP3 cars that entered in the 2 Hours of Fuji, as the new class has a somewhat similar pace compared to the CN class cars. DC Racing has the Cheng/Tung duo on his favor as well the stable Ligier JS P3, and the experience of the Team AAI would let them make a turnaround with their pair of ADESS 03 models, after finding pace but facing a lot of problems in their cars.

At the moment, Atlantic Racing Team has only one driver confirmed for their effort, as the Malaysian GT driver Zen Low waiting for the confirmation of the other two drivers who will drive the car. Low will split himself between his current GT Asia assault with his commitments with AsLMS.
