The new combinations to look out for as GT3 arrives in the WEC

The LMGT3 class that replaces GTE Am has brought a cast of nine manufacturers to the 2024 World Endurance Championship, with five new players among them. With many fresh faces and familiar figures in unfamiliar settings across the grid, here's a guide to the changes and what they could mean when racing begins

Variety is back in vogue in the World Endurance Championship’s GT class. While there was nothing wrong with GTE Am’s sea of Porsches and Ferraris, with the odd Aston Martin and Corvette mixed in, the new era has plenty of upsides – chiefly, that nine manufacturers will be represented, each with two cars.

At least 18 GTs will be on the grid at each round, four more than last season’s highest non-Le Mans tally. It would surely be more had the full season overall entry not been capped at 37, since LMGT3 cars have ABS, which make them more accessible to the non-professional bronze drivers who are GT racing’s lifeblood.
