Evantra should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Looking at Wikipedia - so some of these numbers may be a little bit off - it doesn't look like the non-Ginetta support package is going to be too exciting this year...

Ginetta Juniors - 25 cars
Ginetta GT4s - 18 cars (8 Pro)

Formula 4 - 13 cars
Carrera Cup - 15 cars (6 Pro)
Clio Cup - 10 cars (!)

I expected a small Clio grid this year, a lot of teams and drivers will be moving on or looking at Minis, difficult to justify a newcomer coming into Clios when they might as well learn mini challenge for the year

Or Right Choice Insurance Brokers Insurance.

New engineer for Turkington this year, I presume his other offer was to follow Kev to the wtcr.

believe both ginetta grids will get slightly bigger after brands because there's entries that have to skip the first round in both.

embarassingly for the clios, the barc-run series for older cars has a grid almost double the size.

That Porsche number appears to be the number of cars that ran at their media day. Not every driver was there, and those who were didn't all run.

I wouldnít say itís embarrassing, the BARC Clio championship is in no way top level, the Clio Cup is. The budgets are significantly different, I ran a car in a BARC championship, Iíve got no hope of running one in the Clio Cup.

i've got a fairly good knowledge of both, and i'd still say it is. i can only assume that toes might have been trodden on if they'd done something cool to mitigate the inevitable small grid and gone for a celebration year by opening up the grid to older versions of the clios or something. have to applaud them for the parts credit idea though, that'll make a difference to some competitors and the quality is still there.
