Final 2017 Le Mans 24 Hours entry list published

Three drivers have now been announced for all but one of the 60 cars on the entry for the double-points round of the World Endurance Championship on June 17/18.

Teams have now been required to nominate the three drivers for each car, although changes remain possible.

The only team not to confirm three drivers is Proton Competition, which has yet to name a team-mate for Le Mans debutants Nick Yelloly and Stephane Lemeret in the #88 Porsche 911 RSR entered in GTE Am.

The publication follows Toyota's news that it has reshuffled its line-up by swapping Jose Maria Lopez and Stephane Sarrazin between its #7 and #9 entries.

The decision followed the lack of racing laps for Lopez as a result of his crash at the Silverstone WEC opener in April and the resulting injuries that ruled him out of the Spa round earlier this month.

One reserve is listed, a fourth GTE Am class Porsche entered by Proton.

Why an F1-snubbed British world champion has no regrets in retirement

He may not have won the Le Mans 24 Hours - falling agonisingly short in 2016 - and didn't get the opportunities in Formula 1 his talents merited. But after calling time on his professional career last month, Anthony Davidson says his pride in his performances with Peugeot and Toyota in LMP1 mean more than the results he achieved

The remarkable fixes Toyota used to avert another Le Mans disaster

The 1-2 finish achieved by Toyota at this year's Le Mans 24 Hours was a result that will have surprised few, given its status as pre-event favourite. But the result was anything but straightforward, as worsening fuel pressure concerns required the team's drivers and engineers to pursue "creative fixes" on the fly. Here is the full story of how it reached the end without a lengthy pit visit

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
