The 2024/25 Asian Le Mans Series calendar will consist of six races, with double headers at Sepang International Circuit, Dubai Autodrome and Yas Marina Circuit.


Following consultation with the teams, the decision was taken to increase the number of races from five to six by adding a second 4-hour race to the Dubai weekend at the beginning of February.

For the second year in a row the season opener of the Asian Le Mans Series will begin with a double header in Malaysia at the impressive Sepang International Circuit, the 5.543km, 15 corner grand prix circuit providing a unique technical challenge for the teams and drivers.  The two races will be held on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th December 2024.
The Asian Le Mans Series moves to the United Arab Emirates for back-to-back events at the beginning of February.  The two-race event at the Dubai Autodrome will be held on the 7-9 February, before the series moves to Abu Dhabi for the season finale at the impressive Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi the following weekend.
Pierre Fillon, President of the Automobile Club de l'Ouest: “The Asian Le Mans Series continues to develop, attracting a larger field of competitors every year. The diversity and high calibre of entries make the series essential viewing. To underpin its development, and in full consultation with the competitors, we are delighted to announce a denser and more attractive calendar. This format, featuring two races per weekend, is appreciated by fans and competitors alike. We look forward to seeing you in Sepang in December for another action-packed season of this series!”
Frédéric Lequien, ALMEM and LMEM CEO: “The Asian Le Mans Series continues to grow, with over 40 cars taking part last season.  After consulting with the teams, a sixth race has been added while keeping the three-event format that proved to be popular with the teams and fans alike.  The calendar also reflects the desire to ensure there is no clash with the Rolex 24 at Daytona, allowing the teams that wish to compete in both series the ability to do so. We are really looking forward to another great season of action-packed racing in the Asian Le Mans Series.”
Stéphane Ratel, SRO Motorsports Group Founder & CEO: The Asian Le Mans Series' impressive 2023/24 season and Fanatec GT World Challenge Asia Powered by AWS’s own capacity entry are both proof of motor sport’s boom period across the continent. Stability and an attractive platform have both been key to the ACO championship's success. I have no doubt that many of the GT teams and drivers who spend the summer with us will increase their programmes to include a winter in Sepang, Abu Dhabi and Dubai - just as many already do. SRO will continue to support these endeavours by providing behind-the-scenes assistance, and also avoiding clashes between events.”
