34 Cars On 1000 Miles Of Sebring Entry

Plenty of driver changes

The provisional entry list for the 2019 FIA WEC 1000 Miles of Sebring has been released. It features 34 cars across the four classes, with multiple changes and additions in the driver ranks, but no extra cars as of yet.

In LMP1, DragonSpeed’s BR1 will race with a returning Henrik Hedman at the wheel, alongside Ben Hanley and Renger Van Der Zande, in place of fill-in James Allen.

ByKolles Racing meanwhile has no confirmed drivers as of yet for its #4 ENSO CLM. Oliver Webb, Tom Dillman and James Rossiter were aboard in Shanghai.

The LMP2 field has just one change, with Jean-Baptiste Simmenauer racing in the third Larbre Competition seat alongside Erwin Creed and Romano Ricci.

GTE Pro is back to 10 cars, after Corvette Racing made it an 11-car field last time out in Shanghai with its one-off entry.

Four cars have confirmed third drivers in the class.

Daniel Serra rejoins AF Corse to race with James Calado and Alessandro Pier Guidi in the #51 and Miguel Molina will race in the third #71 seat.

Aston Martin Racing too will race with three drivers in each car, Darren Turner and Jonny Adam back in the #95 and #97 Vantage AMRs respectively.

Ford has TBA’s in the third seats for its two GTs.

GTE Am’s headline changes come at Clearwater Racing, with Matteo Cressoni and Luis Perez Companc joining Matt Griffin in the Singaporean team’s Ferrari in place of the retiring Weng Sun Mok and departing Keita Sawa.

There are also four TBAs in the class, across three cars.

The #90 TF Sport Aston Martin now has an open seat, due to Jonny Adam moving up to Pro.

And the two Dempsey Proton Porsches have free seats too, the #88 having two spots open alongside Matteo Cairoli and the #77 has Julien Andlauer and Matt Campbell confirmed.

Last time out in China, Khaled Al Qubaisi and Georgio Roda drove the #88 and Christian Reid drove in the #77.
