Belgian Audi Club Team WRT has announced its fourth and final driver lineup while AKKA ASP has added a fourth car for this weekend’s season-opener at Zolder.

Alessio Picariello and Gilles Magnus will drive the No. 3 Audi R8 LMS GT3 running in the Silver Cup, completing the only gaps on the entry list.

WRT will also field a car for defending Sprint Cup champions Robin Frijns and Stuart Leonard, while Alex Riberas/Christopher Mies and Dries Vanthoor/Will Stevens will drive the other cars.

The addition of a fourth Mercedes-AMG GT3 for AKKA ASP brings the total entry up to 22 cars.

Vladimir Atoev and Alexey Korneev are set to drive the SMP Racing-backed Mercedes alongside the French team’s three other cars.

Both new lineups are currently expected to be for Zolder only.

The new car will compete in the Silver Cup and joins the full-season entries of Nico Bastian/Jack Manchester, Felix Serralles/Nicolas Jamin and Raffaele Marciello/Michael Meadows.

SMP will also provide backing for one of AKKA ASP’s Endurance Cup cars, a Pro Cup entry driven by Meadows, Vitaly Petrov and Denis Bulatov.
