Good to see Button giving it another go, and also nice to see Van der Zande in LMP1.

 

Now let's wait and see if the Rebellion guys can keep their wits about them...

I am still hoping that Ginetta get an entry.

 

It is strange that only 42 cars announced so far (and not the 50 promised).  There seems to be something the ACO is trying to do in rewarding its own series and I hope that as Ginnetta is an LMP3 constructor it can turn that into getting an entry for 2019 Le Mans

 

Judging by the Sebring entry list the ByKolles engine may still be an issue.

Did they drop the GTE Pro stint length regulation? If so, there's at least one reason to watch.

 

Doesn't really seem like the spectacle the race used to be..

Yes, it all feels very fake. GTE Pro should be the highlight of the race, yet the eventual winner each year seems very convenient for marketing reasons. It’s hard to care about any of the other classes considering they are infested with gentlemen drivers.

Surprising news - 62 cars this year and the next two reserve entries added to the grid. Pleased for the United guys as it was harsh they initially only had one entry.

I have not been in this thread until today, somehow missed that the MSR / Heinricher team did not get an entry, since then any clarification on why they were not acceptable?

With the line-up now (mostly) finalized, and the original topic settled, might I suggest continuing the (pre-)race discussion in this thread: https://forums.autos...of-the-hybrids/

 

Looking forward to seeing how this shakes out. Lots of new faces, and some old hands. There's so much happening in sportscars it almost seems odd that some frequently heard names will only now be making their Le Mans debut.
