Le Mans Auto Entries Up To 15 With Asian LMS Winners Rewarded

A revised list of 15 teams that have already had an automatic entry allocated by the ACO for the 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours has been released.

It includes three class winning teams from the 2015/16 Asian Le Mans Series which concluded its season yesterday.

The full list now reads :

One invitation for:

Porsche Team: victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours in the LM P1 category. One invitation in LM P1.

KCMG: victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours in the LM P2 category. One invitation in LM P2.

Corvette Racing – GM: victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours in the LM GTE Pro category. One invitation in LM GTE Pro.

SMP Racing: victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours in the LM GTE Am category. One invitation in LM GTE Am.

Greaves Motorsport: victory in the European Le Mans Series in the LM P2 category. One invitation in LM P2.

Formula Racing: victory in the European Le Mans Series in the LM GTE category. One invitation in LM GTE Pro or Am.

BMW Team MarcVDS: 2nd in the European Le Mans Series in the LM GTE category. One invitation in LM GTE Pro or Am.

TDS Racing: victory in the European Le Mans Series in the GTC category. One invitation in LM GTE Am.

Team LNT: victory in the European Le Mans Series in the LM P3 category. One invitation in LM P2.

Michael Shank Racing: selected by the Tudor United SportsCar Championship. One invitation in LM P2.

Scuderia Corsa: selected by the Tudor United SportsCar Championship. One invitation in LM GTE Am.

Race Performance: victory in the Asian Le Mans Series in the LM P2 category. One invitation in LM P2.

Clearwater Racing: victory in the Asian Le Mans Series in the GT category. One invitation in LM GTE Pro or Am.

DC Racing: victory in the Asian Le Mans Series in the LM P3 category. One invitation in LM P2 or LM GTE Am.

Each invitation will only be confirmed if the car in question is entered in one of the following three championships in 2016: Asian Le Mans Series, European Le Mans Series and the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

The invitation for the 56th garage allocated by the ACO has been awarded to Frédéric Sausset’s project and the Sausset Racing Team 41 (SRT41). Technologies devoted to helping people with reduced mobility will be highlighted by this extremely innovative sporting project.

This list represents a possible entry of 15 cars out of the 58 places on the grid on Saturday 18th June at 15h00.

The complete list of entries for the 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours will be announced in 12 days on 5th February in Paris.

At present it seems highly unlikely that either Marc VDS or Team LNT will take up their allocated entries, neither team having plans to compete in an ACO sanctioned Championship in 2016.
