A total of 27 cars are set for next weekend’s FIA World Endurance Championship season-opening Six Hours of Silverstone.

The entry list for the first round of the globe trotting championship was released on Tuesday, featuring all but one of the full-season cars registered.

ENTRY LIST: 6H Silverstone

The No. 35 Signatech Alpine Matmut Alpine A470 Gibson, as expected, is absent, with the French squad set to focus its efforts on a single Alpine-badged Oreca 07 LMP2 car for the opening round.

There are no major surprises in terms of driver lineups, or changes, since last weekend’s Prologue at Monza, which saw a number of teams confirm the final parts of their lineups.

The No. 4 ByKolles Racing ENSO CLM P1/01 NISMO is listed with only Robert Kubica and Oliver Webb, but is likely to see a third driver.

Both Dominik Kraihamer and Pastor Maldonado were due to turn laps in the car at Monza prior to the team packing up early due to rear wing-related issues on Saturday after completing only six laps.

Driver pairings for CEFC Manor TRS Racing’s two-car LMP2 lineup, meanwhile, have been confirmed, with Tor Graves being joined by Jonathan Hirschi and Jean-Eric Vergne and Vitaly Petrov, Simon Trummer and Roberto Gonzalez in the No. 25 entry.

Track action for the WEC gets underway on Fri. April 14, with the six-hour race taking the green Sunday afternoon.
