The Automobile Club de L’Ouest (ACO) has announced the 62 entries for the 89th 24 Hours of Le Mans and the two Corvette C8.Rs from Corvette Racing will be among the seven LMGTE-PRO cars to compete for the class win.
The Corvette C8.Rs will be making their Le Mans debut this year after having to pull out of last year’s race amid the Coronavirus pandemic. They will be joined by the full season WEC entries from AF Corse (Ferrari) and Porsche, as well as IMSA’s WeatherTech Racing/Proton Competition that will field a single Porsche 911 RSR.
The 2021 24 Hours of Le Mans was rescheduled from its traditional June dates to August 21-22nd with the hopes that spectators will be allowed to attend the race.
New for Le Mans this year will be the LMH category that will feature five hypercars with Toyota and Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus each with a pair of entries along with a single Alpine A480 Gibson.
LMP2 will have 25 cars with 11 entries competing in a new PRO-Am subclass that will mandate at least one bronze-rated driver in their lineups.
LMGTE-Am will be the second-largest class at Le Mans with 24 entires confirmed.
