The entry list for this year's Le Mans 24 Hours has been revealed, with LMP1 cars filling 21 of the 55 places.
Last year's winner Peugeot returns with three cars as expected, as does Audi, which has confirmed its lineups for each car. Tom Kristensen, Allan McNish and Dindo Capello will remain together, with Mike Rockenfeller, Timo Bernhard and Romain Dumas in a second car and Marcel Fassler, Andre Lotterer and Benoit Treluyer in the third.
Each team has only had to register one driver per car at this stage, so the only confirmed Peugeot drivers are Alexander Wurz, Nicolas Minassian and Sebastien Bourdais.
The factory Aston Martin team will return with two cars, with Darren Turner and Harold Primat listed to drive. The Dome team will also return to Le Mans after its absence last year. Sebastien Philippe is the only driver listed so far.
The rest of the LMP1 class is as expected, with ORECA running one of its own cars as well as a customer Peugeot 908. Signaure-Plus will enter a customer Aston Martin, Kolles will again field two Audi R10s, Pescarolo will run one car, with Sora Racing bringing a second. Lola will be represented by Drayson Racing, Rebellion Racing with two cars and American team Autocon. Nigel Mansell's entry has also been confirmed, alongside his sons Leo and Greg, in a Ginetta-Zytek.
Highcroft Racing will enter its Acura in the LMP2 class, with last year's winner David Brabham registered to drive. Strakka Racing will bring a second Acura, while Pescarolo will be represented by Oak Racing with two cars. Lolas will come from RML and Racing Box, and Ginetta-Zyteks from Quifel-ASM and Bruichladdich. Gerard Welter/Salini completes the class entry with its WR-Zytek.
Eight cars are entered for the GT1 class, but only three from the new-for-2010 GT1 World Championship and there are no Maseratis, despite the MC12 being declared eligible for Le Mans.
There will be three Corvettes, two from Alphand and one from Peka Racing, two Ford GTs from Match Competition and Marc VDS, plus the Larbre Competition Saleen, Young Driver AMR Aston Martin and JLOC Lamborghini.
BMW and Jaguar will join the GT2 class this year, with two works cars from the German manufacturer – with Andy Priaulx and Jorg Muller signed up to drive – and an RSR-run Jaguar XKR. The factory Corvette team will enter GT2 for the first time, with two cars. There are six Ferraris; two from Risi Competizione and one each from Modena, Farnbacher, AF Corse and BMS Scuderia. One Porsche each for Prospeed, IMSA and Flying Lizard, plus the Dutch Spyker.
Scrutineering will take place on Sunday and Monday June 6-7, with first practice set for Wednesday, June 9.
