Corvette will enter a single car to March's FIA World Endurance Championship round at Sebring, as confirmed by the publication of the official entry list for the event on Tuesday.

Having traditionally only entered the 24 Hours of Le Mans on the WEC calendar given its focus on the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, Corvette joined the grid for the 6 Hours of Shanghai with a single Chevrolet Corvette C7.R, where it finished eighth in class.

The #64 Corvette will return for the 1,000 Miles of Sebring on March 15 as the WEC ventures back to the track for the first time since its inaugural season in 2012, pairing the race with IMSA's 12 Hours of Sebring.

Jan Magnussen, Antonio Garcia and Mike Rockenfeller will share duties behind the wheel for Corvette, taking over from Shanghai entrants Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner.

ALL CHANGE AT JACKIE CHAN DC RACING

The other major change on the entry list for Sebring is an all-new line-up for Jackie Chan DC Racing's #37 Oreca 07 Gibson, which had previously been driven by Malaysian racers Weiron Tan, Nabil Jeffri and Jazeman Jaafar.

With the trio unable to complete the WEC super season, the car will be taken over by ex-F1 racer Will Stevens, recent IndyCar driver Jordan King and sports car veteran David Heinemeier Hansson.

In LMP1, Sergey Sirotkin links back up with SMP Racing following his Formula 1 exit, joining Stephane Sarrazin and Egor Orudzhev in the #17 BR Engineering BR1 AER, while Nathanael Berthon replaces Mathias Beche in the #3 Rebellion Racing entry.

A number of GTE-Pro teams have confirmed their third drivers for the extended WEC race, which is set to run at least two hours longer than the usual six-hour rounds.

Daniel Serra and Miguel Molina will link up with AF Corse's full-season entries, while Alexander Sims and Bruno Spengler have been added to BMW's line-up for Sebring.
