The entry list for the Total 24 Hours of Spa has been released during the official test day on Tuesday, with a total of 68 cars set to take part in the Belgian endurance classic.
The race serves as both the Blancpain GT Series centerpiece as well as the second round of the Intercontinental GT Challenge which gets back underway following an almost six-month break after the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.
