A total of 35 cars are on the entry list for next week’s IMSA-sanctioned test at Sebring International Raceway, which will serve as the official warmup to next month’s Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.

ENTRY LIST: Sebring Test

The test, which is optional for WeatherTech SportsCar Championship teams, features 14 Prototype entries, eight GT Le Mans cars and 13 GT Daytona class competitors, with no major surprises.

Paul Di Resta is listed as the third driver in the No. 32 United Autosports Ligier JS P217 Gibson, while reigning Audi R8 LMS Cup champion Alessio Picarello is set for his first outing in North America in the No. 29 Montaplast by Land Motorsport Audi R8 LMS.

Jeroen Bleekemolen, meanwhile, is listed in the No. 75 SunEnergy1 Racing Mercedes-AMG GT3, as his regular Riley Team AMG entry is not taking part in the test.

The two-day test, which includes a night session for the first time, gets underway on Thursday.

Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, IMSA Prototype Challenge presented by Mazda, as well as the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA and Canada series will also be in action next week at Sebring as well.

    Odd to see Corvette only bringing one car. I know other teams have occasionally tested with only 1, but not typical of Corvette.

      Garcia and Magnussen and the other half of the team are out in the boonies putting some test miles on the new mid-engine C8-R! 😊

      The test is optional, not mandatory.

    They’ve won Sebring the last three years, I think they’ll be OK.
