Le Mans 24 Hours entry list released

Entries for the 69th running of the Le Mans 24 Hour race were announced on Wednesday, and while there were no major surprises in the top categories for the endurance classic, British teams are well represented, with the two Bentley entries being the highest profile of the UK-based outfits

Le Mans 24 Hours entry list released

MG has had its two-car entry confirmed in the LMP675 class but the Lola-built cars will find themselves up against a surprise first time entry from Rowan Racing. The Formula 3 team is new to this level of sportscar racing but the Birmingham-based outfit has been granted a single Pilbeam-Nissan.

The La Sarthe race will welcome a second British newcomer this year in the shape of the PK Sport team, which has entered one of the 10 Porches in the GT category.

The battle for honours in the GTS class promises to be closely fought with two Chevrolets pitted against four Chryslers and four Saleens. Notably, Ray Mallock Ltd, which built the all-new Saleen, will not be racing under the Ecurie Ecosse livery as originally thought, due to a lack of backing from Scottish sponsors.

Why the WEC should make space for modern garagistes in 2023

OPINION: There is plenty of excitement over the glut of manufacturers tackling the Hypercar class of the World Endurance Championship this season. The selection committee is set to face headaches over who it decides to admit and who gets turned away from the 2023 entry list, but history tells us that the smaller entrants have a place

Is Qatar the price motorsport fans have to pay?

OPINION: Fresh from hosting a controversial 2022 football World Cup, Qatar has added its name to the 2024 World Endurance Championship calendar. Although questions may be asked about its presence on the calendar, is it simply the price to pay for having a healthy racing championship?

The long road to convergence for sportscar racing's new golden age

The organisers of the World Endurance Championship and IMSA SportsCar Championship worked together to devise the popular new LMDh rule set. But to turn it from an idea into reality, some serious compromises were involved - both from the prospective LMDh entrants and those with existing Le Mans Hypercar projects...

The 956 set the bar at the dawn of Group C 40 years ago, and that mark only rose higher through the 1980s, both in the world championship and in the US. It and its successor, the longer-wheelbase 962, were voted as Autosport's greatest sportscar in 2020 - here's why

Why BMW shouldn't be overlooked on its return to prototypes

OPINION: While the focus has been on the exciting prospect of Ferrari vs Porsche at the Le Mans 24 Hours next year, BMW’s factory return to endurance racing should not be ignored. It won't be at the French classic next year as it focuses efforts on the IMSA SportsCar Championship, but could be a dark horse in 2024 when it returns to La Sarthe with the crack WRT squad

Track limits are the problem that motorsport doesn't seem to be able to rid itself of. But the use of so-called 'sausage kerbs' as a deterrent has in several instances only served to worsen the problem, and a growing number of voices want to see action taken
