Would be interested to see if that's enough to get them a Le Mans entry...

You wouldn't think so in the current climate.

I was idly wondering if Ben Keating might hook up with Larbre and their renta-Corvette. He has an entry but no car and seems to like front-engined muscle cars. So much for that...

If the entry is gonna be marked as Onroak's 'chosen one' it surely will - otherwise it might look shaky at best considering LeConte's somewhat troublesome relationship with the ACO's Comité de Sélection...

This particular Frenchman isn't guaranteed anything as we've seen over the years. Hope they get an entry though

Sad to see the Corvette put aside though after running them since 2011. Maybe Leconte got sick of waiting for GM support to appear for a GTE-Pro effort, that dream seemed to last some while.

I believe he could still race this at Le Mans. I just hope he doesn't put himself through the pain of running the Riley again.

Pretty sure the homologation for the Viper has expired. Besides there might be question marks over the willingness of the owner to let it race again.

No confirmation of Lammers yet but hard to imagine him not being part of the squad (but Perrodo without Collard is a bit of shock as well...).

Would someone hand me a projected summary of the expected non-Oreca LMP2s for the 24 hours now? And which of them would you think could be rejected to the reserve list... the Riley surely is safe for the numbers alone of course

Racing Team Nederland is doing the full WEC season and they have a Dallara, so that's definitely one. United Autosports definitely with one or two Ligiers. Villorba Corse have announced ELMS + Le Mans plans I believe, and they're sticking to Dallara as well. Beyond that, it depends a lot on what ELMS teams pick I guess.

Right now, optimistically speaking, I suspect about 7 non-Orecas.

Thanks, what about the BAR1 Riley though?

+ the Larbre Onroak of course, I cannot see them not getting the entry if Nicolet is in it

The IMSA invites went to JDC Miller for LMP2 and Keating for GTE-Am. No guarantee the Riley will get a slot, and with so many ELMS teams wanting in, chances are it won't.

But it's a Riley and no-one else has it, it looks pathetic for your self-created artificial spec manufacturer restriction if only 3 of 4 get in

One of the criteria for entry picking is "quality of the cars" as well as "technical interest", that alone should guarantee them a slot

ELMS teams have been thrown to the bin before, it's unsafe bet to enter that series nowadays if you hope for LM entry. Even ASLMS tends to be safer...

edit: it will also be the only time someone will be running Riley outside States IIRC, ACO wouldn't bother handing them those "joker" allowances or whatever they're calling bop there if they didn't expect to have them there
