168 drivers from 24 countries

On 14th May at the latest the teams entered for the Le Mans 24 Hours (14 and 15 June) had to send in the names of the drivers for the 56 cars. After the usual checking procedures this list is published today. 168 drivers with licences from 26 different countries will be present in the Sarthe.

The highest number comes from France (39) followed by the British (29), Americans (17) and Italians (15). There is also a considerable Russian presence (8), and at least one Swiss driver in the teams entered in LM P1. Of the four categories the one with the biggest number of different licences is GTE Am with 19 nationalities represented.

Lotus out

There is one change on the list of entries. Due to a lack of preparation the Lotus team is unable to honour its invitation for the Le Mans 24 Hours. The ACO has worked hand in hand with this team for it to be present and gives it its confidence for the future.
