The preliminary entry list for next month’s Nürburgring 24 has been released, featuring 150 cars for the 46th running of the German endurance classic.

As expected, the race will feature a heavy influence of factory or works-supported GT3 cars from Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Mercedes-AMG and Porsche, as well as numerous privateer efforts, including privately entered Lamborghini Huracan GT3 and Ferrari 488 GT3s.

ENTRY LIST: Nürburgring 24

The SP-X class, reserved for non-homologated GT3-based machinery, sees entries from last year’s overall pole-sitting Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus squad, as well as a Renault RS01 that features Kuno Wittmer as part of the lineup.

Three-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Andre Lotterer, meanwhile, is set for his N24 debut in a Porsche 911 GT3 R entered by KÜS Team 75 Bernhard, which is one of five GT3-spec Porsches entered.

Seven Audi R8 LMS GT3 cars are due to take part, alongside a single GT4-spec Audi entered by Phoenix Racing.

In addition to the five BMW M6 GT3s and seven Mercedes-AMG GT3s, the Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 is expected to make its final N24 race appearance, with an all-factory crewed lineup.

A total of 29 cars are listed in SP9-GT3, alongside seven cars in SP10 for SRO GT4-spec machinery.

The race is scheduled for May 12-13.

    I always love watching the Nürburgring 24 Hours.

    Checked the Entry List, this is a great bunch of cars this year, especially in GT3 and TCR.

    Another thing I’m looking forward to during that Weekend in the WTCR.

    Question on the WTCR: Will there be more than 28 entries. Hoping so.

    Lots of luck to all teams at the Nürburgring, especially Aston Martin Racing.

    Interesting Not strange that drivers are entered in more than one car but noticed Kelvin van der Linde and Rene Rast entered together in two different teams WRT and Land Motorsport. If push comes to shove where do their alliance lie?

    Nissan debuted their new car at a VLN race last year. It lasted 2 laps.
