Le Mans organisers have released today the final entry list for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, with 55 car entries chosen from 76 applications

ACO release final 2007 entry list

The 2007 event marks the biggest line-up since 1989, with 41 teams hailing from 13 different countries.

"The choice is never easy and this year all the entry forms we received were perfect," said ACO sporting director Daniel Poissenot.

"This allowed the committee to concentrate on the main criteria laid down in the regulations concerning choice: in particular, the entry of the teams for the 2007 Le Mans Series and of course the quality of their results during the previous season in the different Le Mans Series."

Of the 55 entrants, 28 are prototype cars - with 16 of these in the LMP1 category. Last year's winners Audi have car numbers 1, 2 and 3, while new entrants Peugeot will run with numbers 7 and 8.

In the GT1 category, champions Corvette are set to resume their battle with Aston Martin, the latter retaining their now traditional 007 and 009 car numbers.

The full entry list for the 24 Hours of Le Mans:

The 10 greatest drives of lost legend Jo Siffert

It's 50 years since Jo Siffert was killed in his prime at Brands Hatch. The Swiss scored just two world championship wins in a Formula 1 career spent largely with privateer teams, but showed on numerous occasions in single-seaters and in sportscars with Porsche that he could beat any of the best drivers of his era given the right equipment

Inside the Le Mans finish too barmy for Hollywood

Team WRT has been at the forefront of GT racing for years and made a successful move to prototypes for 2021, capped by an LMP2 win on its Le Mans debut. It could've been even better had the race been one lap shorter, when its cars ran 1-2, but the stranger-than-fiction reality has spurred the team to reach greater heights

The standout memories of Le Mans 2021

OPINION: With four of the five Hypercar entries unproven in a 24-hour race, it would not have been unexpected for at least one of them to suffer serious reliability trouble. That they all managed to make it through the race relatively unscathed, says GARY WATKINS, was something of a surprise.

How overlooked Mazda produced one of Le Mans' greatest shocks

The screaming rotary-engined Mazda 787 is regarded as one of the most popular Le Mans 24 Hours-winning cars, but until its surprise success on this day 30 years ago it was never regarded as a likely victor. But that reckoned without a new technical partner, some canny political manoeuvring and a rival's bizarre self-inflicted weakness
