He's Jeevan Selvanathan. He's based in Malaysia. He did the commentary for the AsLMS Sprint Cup this year, and also commentates on a lot of Malaysian motorsport.

I've never watched a full AsLMS race before (due to no stream!) and I don't think I know enough to do a good quality report, but here's one anyway.

LMP2 Jota dominate


Jackie Chan DC Racing X Jota dominated the opening round of the Asian Le Mans Series at Zhuhai. Despite the #37 BBT Ligier taking the lead early through an alternate pit stop strategy, Richelmi, Newey and Laurent fought back and the #8 Oreca 05 crossed the line almost 2 minutes ahead of the nearest competition.

Team BBT stepped up from GT to LMP2 class for 2017/2018 and put in a strong performance on their debut. Anthony Liu and Davide Rizzo were joined by IMSA superstar Pipo Derani. The LMP2 debutants made good use of the Brazilians skills, leading the race twice and taking a solid second place.

ARC Bratislava completed the LMP2 podium in their ex-Krohn Racing Ligier JSP2. After finishing as runners up in the LMP3 class last year, ARC Bratislava also moved up to the LMP2 class. A podium in their debut LMP2 race in the series can be considered a success.

The #7 Jackie Chan DC Racing X Jota entry struggled with electrical problems. The car initially lost power steering, giving the drivers a bit of a work out. Despite time in the pits, the situation deteriorated and started causing the engine to cut out. The #7 was the only retirement, completing just 41 laps compared to the leaders 154.

LMP3 KCMG victory


KCMG won the LMP3 class, finishing a minute ahead of the Taiwan Beer GH Ligier JSP3. KCMG stepped up from the GT class to LMP3 this season, and did it with style. The Hong Kong based team took the lead at around half distance and cruised to the victory.

Taiwan Beer GH led early, but a Full Course Yellow speed violation cost them the lead. The team held a slim 1 second lead over the KCMG car, but dropped to 30 seconds behind after the penalty.

The LMP3 entry from Jackie Chan DC Racing X Jota finished 3rd. Americans Guy Cosmo and Patrick Byrne choosing to run in a Ligier JSP3 after an enjoyable run in the UK LMP3 Cup last season.

GT FIST-Team AAI One-Two

The GT Class was a Team AAI Master Class demonstration. The team entered two different GT3 cars, a BMW M6 and a Mercedes AMG, and finished 1-2 in class. The #91 BMW M6 GT3, driven by Jesse Krohn, Junsan Chen and Chaz Mostert, came home first. The #90 Mercedes AMG GT3 was second, some 20 seconds behind the sister car.

Looking at the live timing, it was notorious how fast (near a second) were the Orecas on the last sector compared with the Ligier. That difference killed any possibility of the good fight. All the Ligiers got almost the same best lap time, but the Oreca were near two second faster.

Let's see how it goes in the next track.

The entry list was weaker than before and Jota dominance expected.

Note: None of the top Asian teams join the game. BBT is AF Corse.

AAI Motorsports will have a Ferrari for the rest of the season fielding Marco Cioci / Yam Lu / Ollie Millroy

Not sure if this 488 GT3 is to replace one of the previously entered BMW M6 GT3s or in addition

Ollie Millroy and Lam Yu were in the Mercedes for round 1. I presume it's replacing that.

The money for the BBT effort comes from Anthony Liu who is very much Asian - AF Corse are a global team

(Possibly) 4 auto invites to LM should project a bigger carrot for potential entrants.

Is Sarrazin going to show up with his LMP3? Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.

TKS in LMP3 with a Ginetta. Should be interesting to see how that goes. The AAI Mercedes has become a Ferrari too.

Unfortunately the entry list hasn't seen the growth we hoped for round 2.

GT3 entry list is disappointing. The bigger the hat, the smaller the property.

I guess there was a race this past weekend but you know I just realized something... there are zero, absolute zero chassis racing in this series that are eligible for 24 hours now. Even when ASLMS had 6 (!) car grid couple of years ago there were couple of cars that could've run at LM
