The Automobile Club de l'Ouest has revealed the list of teams to who have been invited to compete in the 2014 running of the Le Mans 24 Hours.

A total of twelve teams have been given an invitation based on the results at Le Mans and in the American, European and Asian Le Mans Series this year, with OAK Racing the only one of the twelve to have earned more than one automatic entry.

Teams have until 30 January 2014 to confirm if they wish to take up their invitation to compete, with entries for the FIA World Endurance Championship and European Le Mans Series closing on the same day.

If each team does take up its invitation, it would mean 14 of the 56 places on the grid would have been filled, with Nissan having already been announced as the Garage 56 entrant with its electric ZEOD RC machine.

Much of the grid will be made up of teams competing in the WEC, with Le Mans again being one of the races on the calendar for 2014.

The full entry list for the Le Mans 24 Hours will be revealed on 13 February.
