ASIAN LE MANS FINALE BECKONS FOR OLSEN

Christian Olsen is on the ground in Malaysia this week for the final round of the 2018/19 Asian Le Mans Series season at the Sepang International Circuit. There he hopes to climb the standings into the top three in the LMP3 class at the end of the season and score finish on the podium for the first time in the series.

Currently, Olsen and his teammate Nick Adcock’s #7 Ecurie Ecosse/Nielsen Racing Ligier JS P3 are fourth in the class standings and eight points back from third place which coincidentally is taken up by the team’s sister car.
