INTERVIEW: Australian Liam Talbot is one of the first international drivers to embrace the LMP3 class in the Asian Le Mans Series as he seeks to compete at Le Mans.

He has signed with the ATL Wolf Team Asia Racing Team to race in the Honda powered Wolf GB08.

Having tested the car at Sepang, he came back impressed and hopeful for the upcoming season.

His teammate has yet to be confirmed but he is aiming to have a teammate that can help him win the Championship.

Talbot has been competing in the Radical Australia Series and the Australian GT Championship with success before this move to Asia.

Talbot is a late comer to motorsports with the 2013 Bathurst 12 Hour being his fourth ever race but that didn’t stop him taking Class C with Robert Thompson and Romano Satori in a Lotus Exige S.

From his run at Bathurst he joined the Aston Martin driver training squad a Nurburgring and competed in the VLN where he impressed in a V8 Vantage.  He is due to return to the track for the Nurbrugring 24 with a V12 Vantage and the Aston Martin Driving Centre team.

His ultimate goal is Le Mans in LMP2.
