Grasser are contracted with Lamborghini for at least one car so Gottfried said at Dubai.

Expecting Emil Frey to return with the Lexus.

M Sport will be back with the big Bentleys.

Interesting to see what effect their DTM segue will have on WRTs entries. Be thinking they’ll have at least one car either way.

McLaren should have at least one or two of the new 720.

Porsche sound like they’ll have a number of new 2019 cars both factory supported and privateers. Manthey? Timo Bernhards team?

AMG-expect Akka and maybe BF to return.

Ferrari-I’m sure we’ll have a few Pro Am and Am Cup entries.

Hoping to see Honda with the NSX but heard nothing so far.

BMW-Walkenhorst and Schnitzer are doing IGTC so will see them at Spa at the very least. No idea what Rowe’s plans are this year.

* Expect Grasser to enter Sprint with at least 2, just like Emil-Frey in Endurance.
* FFF Racing really wants to go to Europe, probably with new factory driver Dennis Lind!? A possibility of even 2 cars.
* Attempto for sure will be there with their new Evo's, might even be with 3 cars.
* AF Corse/Spirit of Race published something in December that we shouldn't be surprised to see them in Sprint as well

You are completely right on that. If we took all 'maybe's' we would have around 60 Endurance cars & 25+ Sprint cars

Considering the legal action that went on between CRS and McLaren one would be very surprised if they continued running McLarens.
