AF Corse (3), Dragon Racing – above (2), Kessel Racing (3) plus single cars from FF Corse and Black Pearl by Rinaldi make up the ten.

A pair of Black Falcon SLS Mercedes, an MRS-GT Nissan (plus a pair of 911 GT3 Cup Porsches from the German team) and a Motorbase entered Team Oman Aston Martin complete the GT3 entry.

There’s plenty of Gulf regional interest too with one of the SLS again branded as Abu Dhabi Black Falcon, the Dubai based Dragon Racing squad and Ahmad Al Harthy’s Team Oman Aston amongst the high profile efforts fighting for ‘local’ honour.

Equipe Verschuur enter one of the increasingly interesting, Dallara tubbed, Renault RS01s and the grid is completed by five Porsche Cup cars and a pair of Avelon Formula Wolf Honda CN Prototypes.

The race will be easier than ever to follow too with Radio Me Mans making their debut this year, a full broadcast team on-site will add their usual brand of excitement, in-depth opinion and entertainment to proceedings via www.radiolemans.com
