The addition of the pair of BMW Team RLL M8 GTEs makes it six cars for GTLM though, at present only the factory Corvettes and the Proton Competition-fielded Weathertech Racing Porsche 911 RSR-19 are confirmed as full-season cars with the full programme for BMW not yet clear.

GT Daytona sees 20 entries including an as yet unannounced (other than in the entry) for NTE Sport with an Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo.
