The ACO has released the final entries for the 24 Hours of Le Mans and Corvette Racing and their two C7.Rs will be among the 60 cars set for the 2019 French summer classic.
Adding a bit of drama to announcement process, the ACO had initially sent invites for 42 of the 60 entries on February 11th with none of the IMSA GTLM teams listed. But as promised, they announced the final entries on March 1st which follows the conclusion of the Asian Le Mans Series and the automatic invites that go with it.
Heading to France from IMSA will be Corvette Racing, Chip Ganassi’s Ford GTs, the Porsche GT team and the single team entry from Risi Competizione.
Corvette Racing returns with the same familiar drivers we saw at Daytona and will see at Sebring as Mike Rockenfeller joins Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia in the #63 C7.R while Marcel Fassler teams up with Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner in the #64 Corvette.
The list of entries in LMGTE-Pro are the same as 2018 with 17 cars in the class. They include:
- 2 Corvette C7.R
- 4 Ford GT
- 4 Porsche 911 RSR
- 2 BMW M8 GTE
- 2 Aston Martin Vantage AMR
- 1 Ferrari 488 GTE EVO
