The entry list for Pirelli World Challenge’s season-opening Nissan Grand Prix of Texas at Circuit of the Americas has had a handful more changes since Monday.

Reiter Engineering has added two more Lamborghinis in addition to the one announced last week for Dutchman Nick Catsburg, who is slated to race a full season.

ENTRY LIST: Nissan Grand Prix of Texas

Maximilian Voelker will race in GTA at Austin and St. Petersburg in the No. 37 Blancpain Racing Lamborghini Gallardo FL2, with future races to be determined. Catsburg is listed in an FL2, as well.

Marcelo Hahn, a four-time GTA class winner last year, is also listed for Austin in the No. 0 Lamborghini Gallardo Extenso R-EX, which would be the new car’s PWC race debut.

This would mark the first time Reiter would field three cars in PWC since St. Petersburg last season.

Additionally, Madison Snow’s No. 21 GMG Racing Audi R8 LMS ultra has been moved from GTA into GT. Snow has five top-10 finishes in five prior PWC starts, back in 2012.

Lou Gigliotti, who will be the only driver in the 116-car field that’s set to pull double-duty between the GT and GTS classes, has announced tuning company VelocityAP as a new partner for his Aston Martin Vantages.

TrueSpeed Autosport, meanwhile, has confirmed Sloan Urry for its Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car that will compete in the GT Cup class presented by MOMO.

Track action at COTA kicks off on Thursday.
