ENTRY LIST: Paul Ricard Test
Eleven manufacturers will be represented, including the full-season debut of the Lexus RC F GT3 and new-generation cars from Bentley and Nissan.
Several teams, including Belgian Audi Club Team WRT, ROWE Racing and Bentley Team M-Sport, will be present with just one car despite planning multiple-car entries for the rest of the season.
The full-season entry lists for both the Sprint Cup and Endurance Cup are set to be released over the course of the test, with the Endurance field expected to surpass the number of cars present this week.
At least four cars from other series, namely the ADAC GT Masters and British GT Championship, are set to take part in the event with Barwell Motorsport, Car Collection Motorsport, Team Parker Racing and Rinaldi Racing amongst the teams fielding non-Blancpain GT entries.
Tuesday and Wednesday will each see a total of seven hours’ running, with a morning session from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. local time and an afternoon session from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
