The team will line up Denis Lian, James Mitchell and another driver still to be decided. "I am honoured and excited on racing for Wolf Racing Cars in the Asian Le Mans Series, the most prestigious championship of the whole continent, and it is going to be a pleasure to be doing so with James Mitchell. We are both moved by the same winning spirit of Wolf and we cannot wait to start get on track", said Denis.
