2010 24 Heures du Mans: The official list of the 29 automatically selected entrants

The Le Mans 24 Hours, the Petit Le Mans, the Le Mans Series in the United States, Europe and Asia and the winner of the Michelin Green X Challenge make up the races, championships and trophies, which give an official selection for next year's Le Mans 24 Hours. As all the 2009 season's championships throughout the world have now finished, here follows the official list of the 29 teams invited.

In application of the ACO regulations and taking into account a few special cases explained below in each of the races, series and qualifying trophies, the Automobile Club de l'Ouest has officially selected 29 entrants for the 78th Le Mans 24 Hours on 12th -- 13th June 2010. The car used in 2009 by the selected team appears in brackets on the list.

Seven months before the big event over half the field is already known provided those on the list confirm their intention to take up their selection by sending in an entry form. In the opposite case, a place will become free automatically. Entries open on Monday 21st December 2009 and close at midnight on Wednesday 20th January 2010.
