Nielsen Racing has already announced that it is returning to the Asian Le Mans Series in 2019-20, and now Graff Racing has confirmed that it will be competing too. The team managed by Pascal Rauturier will field a pair of Norma M30 LMP3 cars. The first will be driven by Eric Trouillet who, alongside James Winslow and Enzo Guibert, competed for Graff Racing at the wheel of a Oreca 07-Gibson in the 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans. Sébastien Page will race in the second car, starting with the 4 Hours of Shanghai (22- 24 November 2019). Graff Racing is now finalising its driver line-ups and reflecting on an entry in the 2020-21 FIA World Endurance Championship.
LMP3 is a feeder series and forms the first tier of the ACO’s endurance pyramid. The class was introduced by the organisers of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2015 and will enter a new phase in 2020. The 2020-24 era will see the arrival of a second-generation chassis, which will be fielded by teams and drivers looking to gain a footing in Endurance racing.
