+ two more AMGís supported by the factory, likely from Gruppe M

+ 2x KCMG nissans

+ 1x HubAuto Corsa Ferrari

+ 2x M-Sport Bentley

And at least 2 Audiís and at least one Pro Porsche

Looking likely a smaller grid than last time, but Ratel seems to be have expected that with the change in date

Hmm, im sure theyve changed the content of the post since it was released. It said Park Place for both originally...

Anyway, cool to have Wright also!

By my count theres around 14 GT3s announced or planned so far

Very little info going around on this one, but it looks like theres at least 16 GT3 cars confirmed for the race, I can find little on any GT4, TCR entries, although its worth noting the SRO GT4 West series will be holding separate (I think??) races over the weekend at Laguna Seca. Which means it looks unlikely to see too many GT4 cars in the 8 Hours

This race is really struggling from the date change I believe, maybe itll rebound next year, but its not the perfect time of year for this kind of race.

Still, you really cant argue with the depth of quality in those 16 GT3's, I mean almost every car could stand a chance of winning based of driver lineups alone

Correction:

Alex Buncombe will replace Matsuda in that KCMG Nissan, after his debut with the team in VLN this weekend.
