Cassidy to make prototype debut in Asian Le Mans Series

The 2017 SUPER GT Series champion will race a Ligier-Gibson JSP217 for the Philippine-based Eurasia Motorsport squad in the four-round series, which runs from November through to February next year.  Red Bull-backed Cassidy will share the car with fellow New Zealander Daniel Gaunt, a sometime Indy Lights and Australian Supercars driver, and European Le Mans Series LMP3 regular Nobuya Yamanaka. Eurasia boss Mark Goddard said that the signing of Cassidy was a “real coup for the team” and that Yamanaka, who is backing the programme, had “really shown his intent to succeed by adding Nick and Dan to the car”.
