A total of 38 entries are set to take part in next weekend’s Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, with IMSA having released the entry list for the second round of the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season.

It features 11 DPi cars, eight GT Le Mans entries, 17 GT Daytona class contenders and just two LMP2 entrants. 

No major changes have been made to the driver lineups in DPi beyond previous announcements, although Agustin Canapino has been confirmed in Juncos Racing’s Cadillac DPi-V.R after initially being announced for the Rolex 24 at Daytona only.

Daytona LMP2 class winners DragonSpeed will not pull the Sebring double, leaving the class with the two season-long Oreca 07 Gibson entries from Performance Tech Motorsports and PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports.

Third drivers for each car have yet to be announced.

GT Le Mans features the full-season factory efforts from Corvette Racing, BMW Team RLL, Ford Chip Ganassi Racing and Porsche Team, with Risi Competizione absent, as revealed by Sportscar365 earlier this week.

There are no additions to the grid in GTD, with several Daytona-only entrants not present for the second round, as expected.

Of note, Black Swan Racing, which had announced a full IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup program, is absent, likely due to Tim Pappas’ accident in last month’s Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour that resulted in injuries for the team owner/driver.

The race is set for Sat. March 16, the day after the 1000 Miles of Sebring FIA World Endurance Championship round.
