Le Mans entry list announced

The Le Mans 24 Hours entry is revealed by the ACO
The entry list for the Le Mans 24 Hours has been revealed by the ACO after the deadline passed for teams to name their three drivers for the race.

Toyota are the only team with a space still to be filled after Hiroaki Ishiura withdrew with a back complaint after testing the new TS030 HYBRID.

Nine outright winners feature on the entry list, including former F1 racer Martin Brundle who will share an LMP2 car with son Alex and Lucas Ordonez.

Of those drivers to win last season, Andre Lotterer, Marcel Fassler and Beniot Treluyer return in LMP1, Olivier Lombard in back in LMP2, Antonio Garcia, Tommy Milner and Olivier Beretta will race in GTE-Pro and Patrick Bornhauser and Julien Canal race in GTE-Am.

The official test day will take place on 3 June ahead of the race on 16/17 June.

The complete Audi machinery against the likes of Toyota, Rebellion, Pescarolo, Oak and so on. Not a match for the Ingolstat squad. Last year. they faced some pretty strong competition from Peugeot only. This year, only bloody bad luck will keep Audi from a 1-2-3-4 finish at the 24.
