The second round of the FIA World Endurance Championship season will, as anticipated, have additional entries at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.

Some of the previously announced entries will make their season debuts in the Six Hours of Spa-Francorchamps, the final tuneup before the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

ENTRY LIST: Six Hours of Spa-Francorchamps

The LMP1 entry grows by two from seven to nine cars, with the third Audi R18 e-tron quattro of Filipe Albuquerque, Marco Bonanomi and Rene Rast as well as a third Porsche 919 Hybrid of Nick Tandy, Earl Bamber and Nico Hulkenberg joining the cars that raced at Silverstone.

LMP2 expands by two as well, from eight to 10 cars. Jota Sport’s Gibson 015S Nissan of Harry Tincknell, Simon Dolan and Mitch Evans will make its first FIA WEC start of the year.

Team SARD-Morand is also listed with one entry, the No. 43 car with Pierre Ragues, Oliver Webb and Zoel Amberg set to drive. The team, which had lodged two full-season entries, withdrew from Silverstone.

This race will also mark the Tequila Patron ESM debut of its pair of new Ligier JS P2 Hondas, after signing off the previous generation HPD ARX-03bs at Silverstone.

GTE-Pro has the same seven cars as raced at Silverstone, while GTE-Am grows by one with the addition of an extra AF Corse Ferrari F458 Italia. Matt Griffin, Duncan Cameron and Alex Mortimer will share the No. 55 Ferrari at Spa.

The FIA WEC Six Hours of Spa-Francorchamps is set for Sat., May 2.
