ACO reveals Le Mans entry

While that means just eight cars in LMP1, the second prototype class will feature an impressive 22 cars with ten additional entries for the 24 Hours.

Having run strongly last year, Murphy Prototypes returns for another crack at the race and is joined by the likes of Jota Sport, Level 5 Motorsports and Sebastien Loeb Racing; the team headed by WRC champion Sebastien Loeb having earned an entry for the first time. KCMG will fly the flag for the new Asian Le Mans Series having earned an entry, while the OAK Racing, Greaves Motorsport and Signatech all add extra cars to those to have earned an entry through the WEC.

Six LMP2 cars sit on the reserve list, with Race Performance and Morand Racing heading the queue in the event of any withdrawals.

GTE-Pro features an additional five cars, the headline being a return to Le Mans for the Chrysler Viper after the SRT Motorsports team was granted two entries with the cars it debuted in the ALMS last year.

“The new SRT Viper GTS-R represents a rebirth for us in road racing by bringing an elevated level of technical sophistication to the track,” Beth Paretta, Director of Marketing and Operations SRT Brand and Motorsports, said. “The invitation to return to the 24 Heures du Mans gives SRT Motorsports and the SRT Viper GTS-R the opportunity to compete on a stage with the best sports car teams from around the world.”

The factory Corvette team will also head to Le Mans for what looks set to be a mouth-watering battle for honours, with JMW Motorsport taking up the entry it secured through the European Le Mans Series last season.

GTE-Am meanwhile adds an additional six cars to make a 14 car entry - making 25 GTE cars in total across the two classes.

Extreme Speed Motorsport and Dempsey/Del Piero Racing will both debut in the race, the latter in partnership with Proton Competition, while AF Corse, Larbre and IMSA Performance MATMUT add to their WEC entries with additional cars.

Amongst the GTE reserves are the newly-formed RAM Racing team and TRG, now running an Aston Martin programme in the USA.

The entry list is completed by the GreenGT Technologies hydrogen car, which runs as the 'Garage 56' entry in the same way as the Deltawing appeared last year.
