Eurasia Motorsport is very well known in the sportscar scene because of its prototype efforts, which now spread between the LMP2 and LMP3 classes. Now they’re planning to expand this to the GT side, aligning an Aston Martin in the Asian Le Mans Series, which will start later this year.
The Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 isn’t a stranger to the Filipino team, as they previously operated the British machine under the name of CRAFT Racing, which participated in the return season of the Asian LMS in 2013, first as a single car effort but then with a second car in the last round. The full season entry was never out of the GTC class podium, even winning once at Fuji, and with this the entry was the class runner-up that year. The reality didn’t changed that much from 2013, as the GTE class was merged with the GT3s to be the current GT class, but at the moment it is still a GT3 car class with some old and new competitors to face.
Now without Frank Yu and company, Mark Goddard intends to use the GT3 entry as an extended part of the Eurasia ladder, which starts which has karting and national formula in China, although there was no word about entries in the LMP2 and LMP3 classes.
In Asian territory, Eurasia Motorsport comes off a season of distinct pictures. While their full season entry suffered to catch up with the competition as more entries were joining the series, their guest entry, with Jagonya Ayam boys Sean Gelael and Antonio Giovinazzi, took the second half of the championship with two unquestionable wins, and at the moment the WinEurasia team is competing in the Asian Le Mans Sprint Cup, where the pair formed by Aidan Read and Matt Solomon took the first double-header at Sepang in dominant form.
