Well Braun is off the market and sadly just for Daytona with Dragonspeed and maybe some ELMS running. It sounds like he could not be the 3rd driver for the remaining enduros though in an LMP2 car.

Nobody knows the Lamborghini Hurican like Grasser racing. Maybe John P was persuaded to give it another shot with those guys behind the mechanics of the car. I admire this for sure. The big questions for GTD now is the status of the 1) 2nd Shank car 2)Any Audi presence at all 3)Any Mercedes presence beyond the Riley/Robinson car

It appears

1. Shank is pursuing money and drivers for it so I'd expect at least an enduro program from him
2. Likely not any longer without Land returning for the enduros again
3. Likely no, it doesn't seem like any other teams have even hinted at interest

Thanks for the update! I still think full season POINTS GTD grid will be pretty good. Maybe 14 cars perhaps. Will be needed to make sure the overall VIR race gets to 20 cars. As a fan of GT racing first and foremost I want my all-GT races protected! Can certainly see several teams not doing Long Beach and Detroit. Don't blame them one bit for skipping those rounds. Not the biggest fan of GTD Sprint being added to Long Beach despite understanding the reasons for it. Whenver it was Prototype/GTLM only, I always saw Long Beach as being an all star race for the Weathertech series but with points.

McLaren - also can't remember their status.
Weathertech is returning with Cooper and Vilander in the Scuderia Corsa. Westphal in for the enduros and Alessandro Balzan in for Daytona.

Looks like Cooper bought the first 2020 Evo chassis and had its shakedown at Fiorano recently.

Nice, that just adds to the diversity of the class. Great set of drivers too. Wish Balzan was in for the full season, but it's not like Tony is a slouch.

LMP2 IMSA entries from what I know so far:

Dragonspeed, Era, Performance Tech, PR1 are full timers
Rick Ware and Starworks are NAEC only

I'm afraid the Rick Ware project is gonna be in for quite the shock at the Roar test when they discover how much of horse wagon the Riley is and I cannot imagine them going into the actual race with it. They'll probably lease an available Oreca (or Ligier) at the last minute or drop out all together...

You get free laps back at Daytona after every caution so I'm not sure why it matters how much of a dog the chassis is at Roar and qualifying and wherever. It's likely going 100% rent ride anyway.

Remember that the car did actually get classified finish at LM 2017

I think the Riley was on the Daytona podium on debut wasn't it?

Well as expected Shank found the funding for the second car with Heinricher. It appears she's not driving again this year so guessing she has the sponsors for MSR.

It's Alvaro Parente and Misha Goikhberg in all season in the 57, with Hindman in for the Endurance Cup and Almendinger for Daytona.

Will be tough to get used to Patrick Pilet in GTD.
