Wish there was a real entry list available from the race organizers, but decided to pull the trigger and attend based on what we know so far. If nothing else, want to show some support for the idea of an enduro at Laguna Seca. We'll see...

From the Wright announcement article they speak about 22 cars on the entry list. In the list below there are 24 listed. Had expected some more IMSA GTD and PWC GT3. But IMSA GTD teams have Petit LeMans and most PWC teams don't have endurance material i think. Also there was some rumours about Flying Lizard entries. They have the K-Pax entry, but also they have GT3/GT4 Porsche.

The Wright entry, competing in the GT3 Pro class, is one of at least 22 cars on the provisional entry list for the Intercontinental GT Challenge round at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
They say 'at least', so maybe 22 is the number of entries known to S365 at this point?
I'm also wondering if the ANSA and Racer's Edge entries may not be on the provisional entry list, given that they haven't announced any lineups and quite some time has passed since their initial announcements.

Here's the official provisional entry list:

http://vmail.vertouk.net/userfiles/s...try%20List.pdf

Still no ANSA Motorsports KTM X-Bow GT4s, Racers Edge Motorsports SIN R1 GT4s and GMG Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR on the entry list so far!

Actually the GMG GT4 entry is there, so I missed that one! There was also a rumor that Audi might enter an R8 LMS GT4, but so far no sign of that!

Its an ok entry list. It could be worse. Biggest bummer for me is no Mercedes AMG.

Then go to CoTA. For AMG Mercedes, 5 in GT3 and 2 in GT4 entered for the 24hr race next month. There are 17 GT3 cars plus those MARC Mazdas are entered too. Last count, 57 entries. I don't know how many will actually show up as there are lots of blanks in the driver lineups but they still have over a month to fill some of them out. I know a few guys that run in that series and they love it. Plus the cost is pretty cheap. A seat in a TCR car is less than a seat in one for IMSA or PWC.

For the 8hr race at Laguna, are there really 5 classes?

I was going to go to COTA and had hotel reservations, but asked around a month ago and couldn't get anyone to confirm for me that it was actually going to happen. COTA had absolutely nothing on its website at all and the entry list on the 24h website appeared more aspirational than reliable. I had to make a logistics call, so ended up passing. To be fair, we've done races like the B12h and N24h, so we've seen cars like the AMG GT3 and SCG003, so the novelty factor isn't as strong for those as it might be for others.

I'm on the west coast and can do Laguna Seca by car which makes it less expensive and cuts down on travel time. I was also hoping that some teams would do both. Still, an 8 hour race with some fantastic GT cars and drivers at Laguna Seca? With a decent schedule of support races? Sounds like a good time to me and a better way to spend a few days than a lot of other options.

Agreed. I would take 22 cars for 8 hours @ Laguna over 57 cars for 12 hours @ CotA any day.

However, I'm attending neither.

I find both races interesting. Are there tickets/admission fees for the Laguna Seca 8 hours? I thought I read somewhere that the COTA 24 is a walk in free event.

This is disappointing, but not entirely unexpected, news:

Think of it this way, with 20 cars, you'll have 8 hours of no code 60. If they do happen to pull this COTA race off, it'll be a caution fest anyway.
