I wonder if Optimum will take up their place at LM and what car they will run.
Optimum were an Aston Martin customer nog that long ago. Wouldn't surprise me if they went with Aston Martin at Le Mans.

We'll see if they can get a deal to run an Aston. Depends if they have the budget and how much Aston want to see their cars winning Le Mans. With the F1 team now in place, who knows how much that will affect any sportscar programme

Apparently, the other 3 Asian GT invitees have all submitted entries.

WRT lineup revealed. Will be interested to see how Habsburg stacks up in the WEC.

Also some major R18 ultra vibes to their livery.

Habsburg seems to be a decent pedaller to me. Not a superstar (at least not yet) and probably overshadowed by Colapinto in the AsLMS but decent, nonetheless.

Habsburg has always been decent in whatever series he ran. He's not an obvious choice, certainly compared to other drivers, but he is a safe pair of hands and is very useful for this type of event

He is a future king of Austria..yes the monarchy formally needs to be restored there. Need some old traditions to remain. Despite World War I, the Hapsburg line was never broken though. Unlike the Bourbons in France and Romanovs in Russia.

Is Prince George go-karting yet?

Racing Royal's

I know that Prins Joakim of Denmark is a keen racer in a classic Lotus Cortina, but will never be an international racer.

Don Alfonso de Orleans-Borbón y Ferrara-Pignatelli, Duke of Galliera, was active in endurance racing during the run up to the turn of the century and still runs Racing Engineering.

Then a few years later there was Prince Albert von Thurn und Taxis............

I am sure there are plenty of others.

Richard "King" Petty?




More seriously, although not all perhaps A-list royalty, there are plenty of examples of nobility participating

The Earl of Dumfries
Earl Howe
Prince Nicholas of Romania entered a Duesernberg at LM in the Thirties, which he drove with Whitney Straight.
Max Schaumberg-Lippe eneterd a BMW in the 1939 race. He was known as Prince Schaumberg-Lippe.
Prince Bira drove an Alfa 8C with Raymond Sommer in 1939

Doubtless there are many more.....

Did Petty ever compete at Le Mans? I know there have been NASCAR drivers like Cale who have taken part, but not sure about Petty

There have been quite a few royals at Le Mans yes. Dumfries is probably the most successful, although Earl Howe did quite well too I think? And all the other names mentioned were quite good, especially Bira

Can't think of anymore. We did have a Lord in Lord Drayson racing in it once, but that's not the same
