OLSEN TURNS IN BEST ASIAN LE MANS QUALIFYING PERFORMANCE AHEAD OF 4H SEPANG

Christian Olsen enjoyed his best qualifying performance in the Asian Le Mans Series to date today at the Sepang International Circuit ahead of the season finale.

The Composite World-backed young Dane, driving Ecurie Ecosse / Nielsen Racing’s #7 Ligier JS P3, put the car third on the grid with a 2:00.416; just half a second off the pole time in the class.

His best lap came in the second half of the session, and after multiple improvements, and means himself and teammate Nick Adcock are poised for a strong finish to bookend his and the team’s debut season in the pan-Asian ACO-sanctioned championship.

While mathematically out of the title hunt, Olsen and Adcock can move up into the top three in the standings with a strong finish tomorrow in what’s set to be a hot and humid contest.

The Asian Le Mans Series – Official finale is set to start at 12:00 local time in Malaysia, which is 04:00am UK time. It can be streamed live, for free over on asianlemansseries.com.
