A 31 car entry has been revealed for the FIA World Endurance Championship’s return to racing for the first time since their race in Texas in February before the COVID-19 pandemic brought a halt to world motorsport.
In LMP1 there are three changes, two involve the absence of the Team LNT Ginettas, the team opting to miss Spa and field only a single car at Le Mans.
Numerically offsetting that loss to the entry is the ByKolles Racing with their Enso CLM P1/01 Gibson having a warm-up for their Le Mans appearance in September, Tom Dillmann and Bruno Spengler are confirmed for the effort in the #4 car.
There’s no run at Spa either for the #3 Rebellion, the Belgian race had been on the programme for the car, returning for Le Mans after a one-off appearance at Spa, before the COVID-19 crisis.
There’s rather more positivity in LMP2 where the entry is boosted to 10 cars, the WEC regulars rejoined by the #47 Cetilar Racing Dallara for Roberto Lacorte, Giorgio Sernagiotto and Andrea Belicchi.
The addition too of the #35 Eurasia Racing Ligier JS P217 adds further variety to the field with Nobuya Yamanaka and Daniel Gaunt adding the Spa WEC race to their 2019/20 Asian Le Mans Series adventures.
The final addition is another Le Mans warm-up giving WEC fans an opportunity to see one of the spectacularly liveried, Goodyear backed and shod Algarve Pro Racing Oreca’s, John Falb is the only currently confirmed driver in the #25 car.
