The ACO has announced that Zhuhai in China will host the final round of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup on November 13.
The event will be open to GTC and Formula Le Mans cars entered by local teams as well as the regular ILMC entrants.
In its official statement the ACO affirmed its intention to schedule two rounds in China from next year.
"The quality of the proposals put forward by the management of the Zhuhai and Shanghai circuits to host the 2011 round, and the oft-stated desire of the manufacturers entered in the championship for more races in China and Asia, has encouraged the people in charge of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup to begin work straight away on including two rounds in China on the 2012 ILMC calendar."
Zhuhai also hosted the final round of the 2010 ILMC, which was won by a Peugeot 908 driven by Franck Montagny and Stephane Sarrazin.
