24h of Le Mans entry list released

The Automobile Club de l’Ouest announced Friday its entry selection for the 90th anniversary 24 Hours of Le Mans, set for June 22-23.

Featuring 56 participants, including the new GreenGT H2, which will run unclassified, this year’s twice-around-the-clock endurance classic will again see a two-way fight between Audi and Toyota.

Three Audi R18 e-tron quattros will do battle against two Toyota TS030 Hybrids, with additional LMP1 entries from Rebellion Racing and Strakka Racing, totaling eight entries.

LMP2 features an impressive 22-car field.

Headlining GTE-Pro is the return of the iconic Viper brand to Le Mans, with SRT Motorsports fielding a pair of factory Viper GTS-Rs, which will go up against works Corvettes, Porsches and Aston Martins in the highly competitive production-based ranks, which features 11 cars.

Fourteen cars make up the GTE-Am category, including a much-anticipated entry from Dempsey Racing-Proton, which will field an ex-Felbermayr-Proton Porsche 911 GT3 RSR for Patrick Dempsey, Joe Foster and Michael Avenatti.

  1. Is there no DeltaWing this year? I wonder what’s to become of that car, I was hoping to see development continued and a return to Le Mans.
