Eighteen cars are on the provisional entry list for the inaugural FIA GT Nations Cup, which was released on Friday, three weeks ahead of the inaugural event at Bahrain International Circuit.

It includes three additional cars since several entries were confirmed earlier in the week, with teams representing Malaysia, Argentina and Mexico added.

Pirelli World Challenge GTA and SprintX GT Am champion Martin Fuentes will be joined by Ricardo Perez De Lara in a Squadra Corse Garage Italia-run Ferrari 488 GT3 for Mexico.

For Argentina, Grasser Racing Team regular Ezequiel Perez Companc will share a Lamborghini Huracan GT3 entered by HB Racing with Jose Manuel Balbiani.

The final new entry is a Malaysian-flagged Audi R8 LMS GT3, run by Axle Motorsport and driven by Zen Low Suan Chuan and Mitchell Cheah.

Cars from Audi, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Nissan, Mercedes-AMG, McLaren and Porsche are all included in the field, which has entries from five continents.

The two-day event will take place on Nov. 30 – Dec. 1 and will culminate in a 60-minute main race under the floodlights.
