This weekend’s Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup round at Silverstone is set to host 54 GT3 entries, with a three hour race around the British circuit.

ENTRY LIST: Silverstone

The GT3 field for Silverstone is largely the same as last round at Monza, but has reduced from 57 to 54 entries.

The No. 91 Zakspeed-entered Mercedes-AMG GT3 of Jean Frédéric Laberge, Darryl O’Young and Alex Tagliani is missing from the Pro class entry.

The only other change to the top class is a switch-around at ROWE Racing. Jens Klingmann and Nicky Catsburg are in the No. 98 BMW M6 GT3, replacing Klaus Graf and Lucas Luhr. Stef Dusseldorp remains in the car, and the team’s No. 99 car is the same as previously.

AF Corse has lost its No. 52 entry from the Pro-Am cup, with Duncan Cameron and Matt Griffin. Both have European Le Mans Series commitments this weekend and so won’t compete at Silverstone in their Ferrari 488 GT3.

Christian Kelders has been replaced by Gilles Lallemant in the No. 25 Sainteloc Racing Audi R8 LMS, while Phil Keen is in for Marco Attard onboard the No. 78 Lamborghini Huracán GT3 of Barwell Motorsport.

Antonelli Motorsport’s No. 38 Huracán is the other car not present on the entry, leaving the Italian trio of Lorenzo Case, Marco Magli and Cristian Passuti without a drive.

Rob Bell comes to Silverstone as overall Blancpain GT Series points leader, and the Brit will compete in the No. 58 Garage 59 McLaren 650S.

He also leads the Endurance Cup alongside team-mates Shane van Gisbergen and Côme Ledogar, after their win at Monza.

Track action gets underway on Saturday.
