Laurens Vanthoor and Earl Bamber will co-drive with Timo Bernhard at the German’s Team75 Bernhard operation in the Total 24 Hours of Spa.

Vanthoor was part of the lineup at last year’s race alongside Kevin Estre and Michael Christensen in the Bernhard-run Porsche 911 GT3 R which finished fourth overall.

Reigning FIA World Endurance Champion Bernhard announced earlier this year he would drive the car in the Blancpain GT Series centerpiece for the team’s second attempt.

The team has run a pair of Porsches in the ADAC GT Masters this season including one for Bernhard and Estre.

The car is one of just two Pro entries for Porsche at Spa, alongside the Manthey Racing car driven by Romain Dumas, Fred Makowiecki and Dirk Werner for the full Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup season.

The full entry list for the July 28-29 race will be released at the official test day on Tuesday.
