The Bend Motorsport Park and the Asian Le Mans Series are pleased to confirm the Series will return to the South Australian track in the 2021/2022 and 2022/2023 seasons.
With concerns around the resumption of racing, the easing of travel restrictions around the world, there is ongoing uncertainty for motorsport across the globe caused by COVID-19. This has impacted the Asian Le Mans Series and has even seen the postponement of the iconic 24 Hours of Le Mans race this year.
Speaking about the announcement The Bend Managing Director said, “after so much uncertainty regarding major events, we’re very pleased to confirm the return of the Asian Le Mans Series for two more events. It was an incredible sight to see international motorsport at The Bend for the inaugural event utilising the 7.77km GT track, with nothing but positive feedback from spectators and participants. It was an added bonus that many of the drivers and teams were visiting Australia and for many South Australia, for the first time.”
The Asian Le Mans Series recently made the difficult decision to radically change their coming season due to the ongoing uncertainty. The result is a heavily condensed calendar for the 2020/2021 Season with all four Championship rounds to be held in two neighbouring Asian countries over a 3-week period in January 2021.
Despite this uncertainty, the Asian Le Mans Series and The Bend Motorsport Park remain committed to their partnership to bring the iconic Le Mans brand back to The Bend Motorsport Park. Exact event dates will be released closer to the start of the 2021 / 2022 Season.
