The Class structure of the 2020/2021 Asian Le Mans Series will remain largely unchanged, with the Series continuing to provide a mix of both prototype and GT cars that is synonymous with Le Mans racing. There will be four classes; LMP2, LMP2 Am, LMP3 and GT. 

The only change from the 2020 / 2021 will be to the cars eligible in both LMP2 Am and LMP3 categories. From the 2019/2020 Asian Le Mans Series, only the latest generation LMP2 cars will be eligible to race in both the outright and Am Trophy class.

The 2020 / 2021 Season will see the arrival of the latest generation LMP3 machines. Four manufacturers were selected by the ACO take the class forward: Ligier, Duqueine Engineering, Ginetta and Adess.
