Super Season Finale: First look at 24 Hours of Le Mans entry list
The ACO has today revealed a first look at the entry list for the 24 Hours of Le Mans (15-16 June) which features 34 full-season WEC competitors.
The final round of the 2018-2019 Super Season will be unique for many reasons, not least because it will be the first time that an FIA WEC season – itself unique in being 14-months long – has ended at the world’s greatest endurance race.
It is the second time that the 24 Hours of Le Mans has featured in the Super Season, and today the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) revealed a first look at the entry list which includes 34 full season WEC entrants. Among these will be the teams and drivers to be crowned as FIA World Endurance Champions.
In addition to the 34 WEC entries are 8 further competitors who received an ‘invitation’ as a result of their success either at the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2018, in the 2018 European Le Mans Series or 2018 IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship. A further four automatic invitations will be issued to the winners of the 2018-19 Asian Le Mans Series, the final round of which is on 24th February.
The total known today is therefore 42, and the full 60 entries (plus 10 reserves) will be revealed on Friday 1st March. Stay tuned here to find out who the WEC’s competitors will be this June at the Super Season super finale!
