With the 24 Hours of Le Mans now in the books, the attention for FIA World Endurance Championship competitors shifts to the next round in Germany, with the first running of the Six Hours Nürburgring.

The provisional entry list for the fifth round of the championship was released Wednesday, featuring a grid of 34 cars for the Aug. 28-30 event.

ENTRY LIST: Six Hours of Nürburgring

The championship returns to its near full-season entry capacity with the addition of Nissan Motorsports and Rebellion Racing to the grid for their first regular-season races of the season.

The pair of Nissan GT-R LM NISMOs currently features two-driver lineups of Harry Tincknell/Max Chilton (No. 22) and Olivier Pla and Jann Mardenborough (No. 23).

Rebellion Racing, which got both of its revised AER-powered Rebellion R-Ones to the finish at Le Mans, retains its driver lineup from the previous race.

A total of 11 cars are entered in LMP1, including the two-car factory entries from Porsche, Toyota and Audi.

LMP2 features a nine-car grid, led by Le Mans class winners KCMG, which will see overall winner Nick Tandy return to the No. 47 Oreca 05 Nissan alongside Matt Howson and Richard Bradley.

There are no other changes to the driver lineups in GTE-Pro or GTE-Am, which sees seven cars a piece set to do battle in Germany.
