Next weekend’s Pirelli World Challenge SprintX season-opener has reached an oversubscribed capacity, with two additional entries being added and one as an alternate.

A total of 36 cars are now listed to take part in the weekend’s activities, with the No. 30 MOMO/NGT Motorsports Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 of Henrique Cisneros having been confirmed as the 35th entry for the race.

DIME Racing, which debuted its Lamborghini Huracan GT3 in the Long Beach Sprint race, meanwhile, has been added as an alternate.

Jonathan Summerton is listed to drive alongside Michael Macs in the GT Pro/Am class, should one of the confirmed entries not be able to take part in the races.

A limit of 35 cars was imposed at VIR due to pit lane space, with a similar limit understood to be in place for the next two SprintX rounds at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park and Lime Rock Park as well.

The VIR round will mark the largest-ever SprintX round, following the championship’s three-round pilot series last year.

Track action is set to get underway on Thursday with a pair of promoter test sessions.

    They can just share a pit with somebody

      They tried that back in the 70s and 80s. It doesn’t work and created huge safety and competition issues. They are right to limit the cars when the pit space is limited.

      It would be good for many who comment on these racing forums to go out and get involved with a race team and find out what really goes on in racing. The level of ignorance is becoming serious.

    I wonder whether any of them will be “reaccommodated,” if you know what I mean 😉
