Lapierre can't as he is on Signatech Alpine duty in the WEC. Hirakawa is being touted for the third Toyota so he might also be out if that comes together.

I think we know Hedman/Hanley are confirmed. Plus obviously Rojas. Could definitely see Roussel doing Le Mans. But I think it's maybe too early to lock anything in on an entrylist.

Good point. Forgot about Lapierre at Alpine.
Roussel is a handy Silver though.

Lapierre back to Toyota ?

According to this week's AUTOhebdo, Lapierre will join Sarrazin and Hirakawa (or Kunimoto) for Spa and Le Mans.
Romain Dumas would replace him in the Signatech Alpine.

The magazine tells that this information needs to be confirmed by Toyota's officials.

S365 have picked this up too. I wonder if it's true.

Would be some crazy redemption story if Lapierre was the guy to break Toyota's LM jinx. He's certainly done himself a lot of favours since dropping down to P2.

Lapierre/Sarrazin/Hirakawa would be very decent I think. Maybe not on the absolute pace but good enough to be there or thereabouts after 24 hours. Would also be great to see Dumas back at Le Mans too. Too many great drivers on the sidelines currently.

Hirakawa is quick, and has a full season of LMP2 under his belt. Kunimoto is probably even faster, but would be more or less going into ACO racing blind. With the safe hands* of Lapierre & Sarrazin behind them I'd not be surprised if whichever of the two gets the seat was told to push.
