Drivers have been revealed for most, if not all cars, expected to participate in next week’s two-day IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship test at Daytona International Speedway.

Sportscar365 revealed the expected list of cars set to test earlier this week.

ENTRY LIST: November Daytona Test

Notable Prototype and Prototype Challenge driver additions beyond most full-season drivers from this year include Filipe Albuquerque as third driver in the No. 5 Action Express Racing Corvette DP, and Ryan Eversley and Johnny Mowlem as part of a four-driver lineup in BAR1 Motorsports’ No. 20 Oreca FLM09.

Ford does not have drivers listed for its pair of Chip Ganassi Racing-entered Ford GTs.

The five confirmed drivers for two Lamborghini Huracán GT3s – Bryan Sellers, Madison Snow, Bryce Miller, Townsend Bell and Bill Sweedler – will share the single Lamborghini entered next week.

Factory aces Jens Klingmann, Maxime Martin and Marco Wittmann will share the No. 97 BMW M6 GT3 for Turner Motorsport, while Thomas Jager and Yelmer Buurman will be in the new Mercedes-AMG GT3 as part of the manufacturer’s test effort.

The older Porsche 997 GT3 entered from Autometrics Motorsports features team veterans Corey Friedman and Joseph Toussaint, the latter of whom ran a handful of World Challenge races earlier this year.

Testing begins on Tuesday for the two-day session.
