The primary focus of the Asian Le Mans Endurance Management (ALMEM) remains the delivery of a safe and successful 2021 Asian Le Mans Series. It has become clear over the last few days that as a direct response to changing travel restrictions being enforced around the globe that swift action was required.
The ALMEM team has now put in place an alternative schedule that starts a week later and allows teams to serve the ten-day ‘quarantine’ in Dubai whilst competing in the opening two races of the season. The paddock will then move on to Abu Dhabi for the final two races as planned.
ALMEM would like to thank all the teams and drivers, technical partners at Michelin and TOTAL, all the various support crews and everyone at both the Yas Marina Circuit and the Dubai Autodrome for their continued support.
