He did, there's two teams running the cars, one for WEC, one for TUSC. However Ford themselves haven't been entirely clear on whether all four will run at LM.

Right, now that the 2015 race is over I'll bite...

The Ford entries are really the biggest intrigue for me next year - particularly the drivers. I'd love to see four of them. Like Ben said above it's not been confirmed. If they did run 3-4 car would that goad AF Corse (with Ferrari $$$) into running a third Pro car?

Also in the GT ranks Beechdean look nailed on to enter the GTE they ran at the Aston Festival. It would also not surprise me at all to see TRG try to put together an AM entry. They had a huge fleet in that race and could probably get in with one of those IMSA entries. Same story for Shank. Some might baulk at more Astons but I'd be very surprised if Roald Goethe comes back next year after that shunt. Possibly a similar rationale to Horst Felbermayr Sr who never raced post his 2011 crash.

Just seen this tweet from Tenths' very own Mike Hedlund - https://twitter.com/mike_hedlund/sta...084736?lang=en

Would love to see him in the race next year.

No not at all. AF Corse's problem is not car count in the pro class. It's drivers. Outside of the Bruni, Vilander, and well lets just throw (eh) Fisichella in there. There lineup is a bit of a disaster (Rigon and Calado looked promising, but that was 2 years ago and they haven't really had a breakout race). Putting more of those so called factory drivers in another car isn't going to do anything. For the past 6-7 years, the buck stopped with the 51 Ferrari with Bruni on board. Not expecting that to change.

People aren't afraid of Ford, they are afraid of the BOP.

Brabham are another team to put on any provisional list for next year. David sounded pretty bullish that they'd be on the grid next year.

Just got an email saying they are in early negotiations with potential investors. Let's see.

I see where Jos Verstappen is hoping to join up with Jan Lammers and Frits Van Eerd in all Dutch line up next year.

The team is looking for a all dutch line- up. With Max performing very good in F1 it is time for Jos to start driving again.

I'm just guessing but I think the combo we've seen recently of Nicolet/Maris/Merlin will take some beating on the age front.

Eurointernational are targeting an auto invite to LMP2 next year by winning the AsLMS LMP3 title. Also aiming to run in the ELMS next year.

One would think Jeroen Bleekemolen and Renger van der Zande are good candidates too (and very much in their prime!).

I called this a few pages back. No surprise to see TRG are looking at returning to Le Mans next year.

You only had to take a look at the Aston Festival entry list to see the commitment was there. Clearly they have interested drivers. Getting an at-large invite from IMSA has to be very likely.
