The entry list for the 1000 Miles of Sebring pre-event test has been released with all but one of the cars entered into the race scheduled to take part.

The No. 63 Chevrolet Corvette C8.R that will be driven by Jan Magnussen and Mike Rockenfeller will be absent because Corvette Racing is privately testing its new GTE car at Sebring this week.

This leaves a total of 29 cars for the official test, which takes place on Mar. 14-15.

As was the case last year, each day will be split into morning and afternoon sessions running from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. respectively.

There are few surprises on the entry list, which includes the addition of Sam Bird and Daniel Serra to the factory AF Corse Ferrari GTE-Pro team as third drivers.

The only notable absence is High Class Racing LMP2 driver Kenta Yamashita, who is set to take part in the Super GT pre-season test at Okayama on the same weekend.

The WEC test will be held the week before the 1000 Miles, which forms part of the ‘Super Sebring’ joint event with the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
