Star names include Dani Juncadella, Felix Rosenqvist, Bruno Spengler and Will Stevens.
Leading the battle among the 21 prototype entries will be LMP championship points leaders, the No.123 Team Redline, with Spa and Nürburgring winners Felix Rosenqvist and Bono Huis being re-joined for this round by Atze Kerkhof. Just 3.5 points behind them in second is the No.4 Floyd ByKolles Burst entry of Tom Dillmann, Jesper Pedersen and Jernej Simončic.
The battle for championship honours in the GTE category is as tight as in the LMP category. The No.71 BMW Team Redline BMW M8 GTE entry leads the way with a 4.5 point lead over the No. 91 Porsche Esports Team 911 RSR GTE, both teams fielding an unchanged driver line up. Five manufacturers (Ferrari, Porsche, BMW, Corvette and Aston Martin) are entered in the GTE category,

Saturday we will let loose 38 cars into the 500 miles of Sebring, with drivers such as @dani_juncadella, @FRosenqvist, @BrunoSpengler, @MitchelldeJong1 and @WillStevens_ taking part.
All entrants will be aiming for a strong result this coming weekend to consolidate their positions ahead of the double points-paying final round in January.
After a frustrating Nürburgring round, with technical issues forcing organisers to call a premature halt to the race, extensive tests have been carried out and the server problem identified and resolved. The hours spent racing this coming Saturday will serve as valuable training for the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual.
The Le Mans Virtual Series brings together top level real life drivers and some of the world’s best sim racers to compete together in five endurance races of between four and 24 hours in duration and concludes with the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual in January 2022.
