FRD LMP3 Series

The FRD LMP3 (Le Mans Prototype 3) Series is the brand new premier prototype series in China. Backed by the Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO), the championship brings together the best drivers, teams and selection of LMP3 cars to compete over a five-round format that will be managed and implemented to the highest international standards.

With four rounds held in China, the professional competition will see two LMP3 cars entered from each team; driven by one professional international driver and one Chinese motorsport rising star to ensure the highest quality Chinese driver development the country has ever seen.

Prizes

The FRD LMP3 Series offers one of the most attractive championship prizes in the region and will provide a true stepping stone to the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the most successful team and drivers of the competition.

The championship winners of the FRD LMP3 Series will receive free use of a Ligier JS P2 LMP2 car as well as free entry into the Asian Le Mans Series for the 2017-2018 season. A Ligier JS P3 LMP3 car will also be provided to the 1st runner up to participate in the 2017-2018 Asian Le Mans Series as well.

If the winner of the 2017-2018 Asian Le Mans series is the FRD LMP3 Series champion, they will be provided with free entry to enter the infamous 24 Hours of Le Mans with a Ligier JS P2 LMP2 car and racing support costs provided by Ligier’s maker, Onroak Autotmotive.

This is an incredible opportunity for drivers and teams to be given the chance to take part in the world’s most challenging and infamous race and offers huge value to any team or driver that enters the new FRD LMP3 championship.

LMP3

In 2015 a new category of sports-prototype car for endurance racing was built, LMP3 – Le Mans Prototype 3. LMP3 becomes the first step on the ladder before moving up to the LMP2 and LMP1 classes; with LMP1 being the top-level prototype racer used in highest class for the WEC and the Le Mans 24 Hour.

An LMP3 car has a closed cockpit, carbon chassis with tubular steel roll cage and is powered by a Nissan 420 bhp normally aspirated V8 engine, and an X-Trac gearbox. It is identical for all chassis produced by the five different manufacturers to keep costs low and competition at the maximum level.
