With only two days to go until track action at Monza begins, Blancpain Endurance Series organizers have released an updated version of the provisional entry list, which sees some of the final seats being filled.

ART Grand Prix is one of the latest teams in the Pro Cup to finalize its driver lineups on both cars. McLaren factory driver Alvaro Parente will share car No. 98 car with Gregoire Demoustier and newcomer Alex Premat, who returns to Europe after two years of racing in the Australian V8 Supercars.

The No. 99 McLaren MP4-12c sees another potent trio, with newly signed factory driver Kévin Estre joined by Andy Soucek and Estonian Kevin Korjus, who makes the switch from GP3 where he finished seventh last year.

The Pro Cup Saintéloc Racing Audi R8 LMS ultra entry will be driven by WRT regular Stéphane Ortelli, Grégory Guilvert and Alex Müller, while the final seat on the Brother Racing Team Audi is filled by André Couto, which moves the Chinese car up to the Pro Cup,  now boasting 13 entries.

Besides the announced absences of both AF Racing International Lamborghinis, there are two additional forfeits for the season opener at Monza, as both the Autorlando Porsche and JMB Racing Nissan have disappeared of the list.
