The 2022 Asian Le Mans Series will be contested in an intense two-week period, with all four races being held between the 11th and the 20th of February. There will be two races, each four hours in length, at the Dubai Autodrome and at Yas Marina Circuit.
- Race 1 – Friday 11th February 2022, Dubai Autodrome
- Race 2 – Saturday 12th February 2022, Dubai Autodrome

The 2021 Asian Le Mans Series offered teams, drivers and fans exciting and enjoyable racing. The success of the cost-effective and safe package, that did not compromise the quality of the operation, was reflected in the record 36 car entry list, with a record live audience watching the races. With the impact of Covid-19 related travel restrictions continuing to be felt around the globe, and particularly in the Asia Pacific region, the decision has been made to retain the same format for the 2022 season. It is hoped that by taking decisive action now it will allow teams and drivers to prepare well, with as much confidence as possible.
The Asian Le Mans Series and the Automobile Club de l’Ouest would like to thank the Series’ partners, Michelin, and TOTAL, the circuit management teams, and the teams and drivers, for their understanding and full support of the proposed format.
Frédéric Lequien, CEO Le Mans Endurance Management:
“I am very pleased to be able to announce the calendar for the 2022 Asian Le Mans Series. The global pandemic has thrown many challenges at all of us, and our priority has remained to deliver an exciting season, in a safe and cost-effective manner. We are disappointed not to be able to return to our more traditional Asia Pacific circuits. We know they are going through a really tough time at the moment and hope that 2022 brings much brighter days for international motorsport in the region. We look forward to returning there when the time is right. For now, I’m confident that a double-header in the UAE is an ideal solution and look forward to the new season.”
