Vasser Sullivan will double up its GTD Pro class effort for next weekend’s Detroit Grand Prix, in a 21-car entry that will also see Conquest Racing make its class debut.

Released on Wednesday, the entry list for the 100-minute GTP and GTD Pro-only race will see GTD regulars Parker Thompson and Frankie Montecalvo at the wheel of the No. 15 Lexus RC F GT3, while Ferrari factory driver Daniel Serra joins Albert Costa in the No. 35 Conquest Ferrari 296 GT3.

The two additions boost the GTD Pro category to 11 cars, alongside the ten GTP entries that have been competing all season in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

Of note, Bent Viscaal is set for his second consecutive outing in Proton Competition’s Porsche 963 alongside Gianmaria Bruni, while Alex Riberas will return to Heart of Racing Team’s Aston Martin Vantage GT3 Evo after missing the last GTD Pro round due to his FIA World Endurance Championship commitments.

There are no other driver changes on the entry list for the June 1 street race.
