A total of 35 cars are on the provisional entry list for next weekend’s Continental Monterey Grand Prix at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, in the penultimate round of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season.

While the Prototype class remains at 13 entries, with the continued absence of Performance Tech Motorsports’ Oreca 07 Gibson and the Spirit of Daytona Cadillac DPi-V.R, and GT Le Mans unchanged at 8 cars, the GT Daytona class swells to 14 cars.

Squadra Corse Garage Italia returns for its third of a three-race program with Francesco Piovanetti and Ozz Negri, while the No. 73 Park Place Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 R is also back, for Patrick Lindsey and Joerg Bergmeister.

The second Scuderia Corsa Ferrari 488 GT3 is also entered for Townsend Bell and Frankie Montecalvo, marking that car’s first start since the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen last month.

Additionally, SunEnergy1 Racing is set to reappear, with Virgin Australia Supercars ace Jamie Whincup joining Kenny Habul in his Mercedes-AMG GT3.

The event runs from Sept. 7-9.
