Come Ledogar’s CLRT squad has added a second Porsche 911 GT3 R for next weekend’s Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe powered by AWS Endurance Cup race at Paul Ricard.

The French team’s additional Pro-Am Porsche will be driven by Dorian Boccolacci, Stephane Denoual and Emil Caumes.

CLRT is also tackling its home Endurance Cup fixture with its full-season Bronze Cup Porsche which is set to be shared by Hugo Chavlier, Steven Palette and Clement Mateu.

Friday’s provisional entry list for Paul Ricard shows FIA World Endurance Championship Hypercar driver Frederic Makowiecki in the Bronze Cup Porsche, however this is an error.

Ledogar confirmed to Sportscar365 that Makowiecki will join the No. 44 lineup for the next three rounds after Paul Ricard, including the CrowdStrike 24 Hours of Spa.

A total of 57 cars are registered for the Paul Ricard 1000km including further additional entries from Leipert Motorsport and Akkodis ASP.

Leipert is running a Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO2 in the Silver Cup class for Brendon Leitch, Kerong Li and Jean-Francois Brunot as part of its 24H Spa preparations.

ASP is bringing an extra Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo to compete in Bronze Cup, with GTWC America race winner Rodrigo Baptista spearheading an all-Brazilian driving trio.

The only change in the Pro class since last month’s Endurance Cup season-opener at Monza is the return of Daniel Serra to the No. 71 AF Corse Ferrari 296 GT3.

Serra missed Monza due to a clash with his Stock Car Pro Series commitments in Brazil and was replaced by two-time Endurance Cup champion Alessandro Pier Guidi.

ROWE Racing heads to Paul Ricard as the team to beat in the long-distance GTWC Europe series after claiming a one-two finish for BMW in Italy.
