They have three auto entries, unlikely the ACO won't grant an invite for the fourth car. Would love them to present more retro liveries for the event, but not being an anniversary year, I guess that's unlikely.
This is official notice to all at the track to have their ear defenders primed and ready.

That’s true, I was just being silly. They seem to do it more to get them worn than to make cash. I remember the 2003 era Bentley stores had a cheaper T-Shirt which they sold a lot of. Good for the fans and builds brand.

I still have my 1986 Silk Cut Jaguar t-shirt from my first Le Mans. I would barely fit a 6 year old now - about the same size as Simon's Rebellion t-shirt......

Ford at being shown up really so I wonder whether they'll step up next year with a worthy livery?

If they made them to get worn, they've succeeded at least with me. I bought both the Rothmans and Pink Pig T-shirts and they're well-established in my shirt rotation at work. In fact, I've got the Rothmans one on today to wear in the office. )

Just two weeks for the first batch of entries to be announced, before the final 10+10 in 4Ĺ weeks.

Not as much excitement for the lists here as in previous years, I gather. Most of the field is set and no new LMP1s being launched. Will they bother making press conferences?

Suspect it'll be a fairly generic class split to last years, only with the Ginettas removed for P2s, but the similar 30-30 proto-GTE split remaining for ??? reasons
08x LMP1
22x LMP2
17x PRO
13x AM
10x Reserve, 5x LMP2 5x AM

Once again I'm going to beat the "Factory efforts should be 2, max of 3 cars" drum. If we end up with good Am teams who have supported the series for a long time being dropped, just so we can have another Ford GT before they leave anyway, I won't be a happy man.

Not that my happiness matters in this situation!
