Asian Le Mans Series Champions crowned


With four races in just nine days in the United Arab Emirates, the battles were fierce, and the Championships were hard fought. The incredibly tight format has proven popular again with 37 entries taking part in this unique challenge.

LMP2 – #4 Nielsen Racing Oreca 07 Gibson of Rodrigo Sales, Matt Bell and Ben Hanley

#39 Graff Racing Oreca 07 Gibson – David Droux, Eric Trouillet, and Sebastien Page Am    

#49 High Class Racing Oreca 07 Gibson – Dennis Andersen, Anders Fjordbach and Kevin Weeda

Nielsen Racing claimed the LMP2 title in dominant fashion this season. The British team claimed a clean sweep of four race wins and four pole positions. It is not the first time the team has won a Championship with the Asian Le Mans Series, they claimed the 2019/2020 LMP3 title which saw them make their LMP2 racing debut in the 24 Hours of Le Mans!

*The United Autosports LMP2 entry was not eligible for Championship points.

LMP2 Am – #39 GRAFF Racing Oreca 07 Gibson – David Droux, Eric Trouillet, and Sebastien Page

#49 High Class Racing Oreca 07 Gibson – Dennis Andersen, Anders Fjordbach and Kevin Weeda

#44 ARC Bratislava Ligier JS P217 Gibson – Miro Konopka, Neale Muston and John Corbett

While the LMP2 Am Champions GRAFF Racing team did not have things all their own way this season, they performed well all season, winning three out of the four races.  High Class Racing pushed the hard, winning Race 2 in Dubai, but issues in the final race hampered their Championship challenge.


LMP3 – #27 CD Sport Ligier JS P320 – Nissan – Christophe Cresp, Antoine Doquin and Steven Palette

#3 CD Sport Ligier JS P320 – Nissan – Michael Jensen, Nick Adcock, and Edouard Cauhaupe

#22 Rinaldi Racing Duqueine M30 – D08 – Nissan – Leonard Weiss, Torsten Kratz, and Hendrik Still

Consistency and trouble-free running proved a winning combination for the #27 CD Sport squad. Despite note winning a race during the 2022 Asian Le Mans Series, a third place finish and a trio of second places saw the team claim the title by just four points from their team mates in the #3 CD Sport entry.


GT – #7 Inception Racing McLaren 720S GT3 – Brendan Iribe, Ollie Millroy and Ben Barnicoat

#91 Herberth Motorsport Porsche 911 GT3 R – Alfred Renauer, Robert Renauer and Ralf Bohn

#55 Rinaldi Racing Ferrari 488 GT3 – Rino Mastronardi, David Perel and Davide Rigon 

With a 23 car GT field the battle for GT Championship glory was always going to be intense, and that is exactly what the 2022 Asian Le Mans Series delivered. In the end, a fifth place finish in the final race on top a race win in the opening round and two second places was enough to secure the #7 Inception Racing McLaren the Championship title.


GT AM – #20 SPS Automotive Performance Mercedes AMG GT3 -Valentin Pierburg, Ian Loggie and Mikael Grenier

#57 Kessel Racing Ferrari 488 GT3 – Roman Ziemian, Francesco Zollo and Axcil Jefferies

#99 Herberth Motorsport Porsche 911 GT3 – Jurgen Haring, Tim Muller and Marco Seefried

The GT AM Class was the most tightly contested category this season with the Championship decided on countback. SPS Automotive Performance and Kessel Racing finished tied on points with both winning two races and finishing second in the other two. Due to the fact that the #20 won the open race of the season, they are awarded the Championship title.


The LMP2, LMP3 and GT Champions will receive an invitation to race at the 24 Hours of Le Mans later this year. Entry to the 24 Hours of Le Mans remains subject to confirmation from the Selection Committee. The full entry list will be announced in due course.
