Asian Le Mans Series: Nielsen Racing chooses Norma for LMP3 campaign

For the forthcoming Asian Le Mans Series season that will begin on 24 November 2019 at the Shanghai International Circuit in China, Nielsen Racing has opted for a Norma M30, marking the French manufacturer’s introduction to the competition.

While just a single car has been confirmed for the time being, the UK-based outfit still hopes to run a second prototype. The team’s two entries finished third and fifth in the LMP3 standings and claimed three podium places during the 2018-19 season.

LMP3 is of course the entry level of the endurance pyramid designed by the ACO as a platform for novice teams and drivers to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The class is set to evolve in 2020 after five years of existence. The 2020-24 era will see the second generation of LMP3 chassis enter the fray.

Find out more about the new-generation LMP3.
