The team has already announced it will enter a pair of cars for the full Blancpain GT season with Markus Winkelhock and Christopher Haase the first drivers confirmed in the lineup last month.

Gachet will drive alongside Haase in an Audi R8 LMS GT3 in the Pro category of the Sprint Cup, while 18-year-old Stievenart will team up with Winkelhock in a Pro-Am-entered car.

Stievenart recently drove a BMW M4 GT4 in the Hankook 24 Hours of Dubai while Gachet competed with Sainteloc in two Blancpain GT rounds last season.

While neither Gachet nor Stievenart have been officially confirmed for the Endurance Cup, it is expected that all four currently announced drivers will be part of the program.
