Avelon Formula enters the Asian Le Mans Series
Avelon Formula, Wolf Racing Cars’ works team, is about to open a new important chapter of its history; the team lead by Giovanni and Maurizio Bellarosa will make its debut in the second round of the Asian Le Mans Series at the Fuji Speedway next August 31.
The racing programme will feature the participation to all the remaining races of the season.
The team will line up Denis Lian, James Mitchell and another driver still to be decided. Lian is the Singapore’s most winning driver who already took part in the 12 Hours of Abu Dhabi in 2011, scoring a second place with the team.
He also won the Formula 2000 Asia title in 2002 and took part in the A1GP series in 2006 and 2007. Mitchell has a solid experience in endurance races and already worked with the Lotus works team in GT4.
Giovanni Bellarosa (Wolf Racing Cars, General Manager): “Asia, and particularly China, is a market that we believe will represent the future of motorsport in the coming years. The decision to take part in the Asian Le Mans Series was taken to provide a reference point and a direct assistance to all our clients located in the far east.
“We already sold several cars in Malaysia and Singapore, but up to now we did not have a specific presence in Asia allowing us to follow closely teams and drivers providing them with the same quality that features our cars and that makes the Wolf GB08 the most winning car on the market in the category”.
Denis Lian said: “I am honoured and excited on racing for Wolf Racing Cars in the Asian Le Mans Series, the most prestigious championship of the whole continent, and it is going to be a pleasure to be doing so with James Mitchell.
“We are both moved by the same winning spirit of Wolf and we cannot wait to start get on track.”
