4Hours of Buriram beckons as Frost heads to Asian Le Mans Series season finale
Singaporean teenager takes set for another appearance in the blue riband LMP2 category
Buriram, Thailand, Saturday, 22 February 2020 – Following a solid debut in the LMP2 category with the Inter Europol Competition team last weekend in Sepang, Singapore’s Danial Nielsen Frost heads to Thailand’s Chang Buriram International Circuit this weekend. The fourth event in the 2019/20 Asian Le Mans Series is also the final round of the season. Frost will once again take on the challenge with the team’s number #33 LMP2 car partnering his Australian teammates, John Corbett and Nathan Kumar for the gruelling 4Hours race this Sunday.
His outing commenced on Saturday with the first of two 90-minute free practice sessions, followed by the qualifying session later the same afternoon. Taking to the track in the first practice session, the teenager was quick off the mark with his best effort of 1:26.892s. Frost would improve on that mark when he shaved nearly 1.5 seconds off his initial effort to post a time of 1:25.233s. Though sitting out the qualifying session with that responsibility going to his teammate, the #33 Euro Interpol Competition car went on to secure a seventh place start for Sunday’s feature race.
Frost comments, “After an exciting race last weekend at the 4Hours of Sepang, being in a racing car is always fun! As is quite typical in this type of endurance formats, we share driving responsibilities with our car-mates. There were a lot of positives, which is where my focus will be fixed on for Sunday’s race. For one, I am happy with the pace I had during my sessions and working on improving on it and my consistency. I will definitely be giving it my all and hope for the best for tomorrow’s long race.”
Proceedings for Frost’s second outing in the Asian Le Mans Series will see the teenager take on the challenge of the 4Hours of Buriram at 11.45a.m local time (GMT+7). The race will also be streamed live on the Asian Le Mans series YouTube channel.
From Thailand, Frost will return to the United States of America for the 2020 season of the Indy Lights series, which commences this March.
