Le Mans 2022 Entry List News etc

This feels a bit overdue. We're all more excited about next year, aren't we?

Anyway, we are now in the second year of Hypercar and could actually see the Peugeots this year (maybe). Plans have also been laid out for the retirement of GTE, first Pro then Am, so this year marks the final appearance of GTE Pro, and probably any sort of all-pro GT category for a while. We also have teams and drivers positioning themselves for the future.

Presumably there will be 62 places on the grid again this year.

The WEC entry list has been released and features a record entry of 39 cars (https://storage.googleapis.com/fiawe...ected_cars.pdf), all of which have an entry to LM by default. That leaves 23 grid slots to fill.

Hypercar
2x Toyota
1x Alpine
1x Glickenhaus
2x Peugeot

LMP2 - all Orecas
1x Richard Mille Racing
1x Team Penske
1x Prema Orlen Team
1x Vector Sport
2x United Autosports
1x G-Drive Racing
2x Jota
1x WRT
1x Inter Europol Competition
1x Ultimate
1x Realteam by WRT
1x ARC Bratislava
1x AF Corse

GTE Pro
2x AF Corse Ferrari
1x Corvette Racing
2x Porsche GT Team

GTE Am
2x AF Corse Ferrari
1x TF Sport Aston Martin
2x Team Project 1 Porsche
2x Iron Lynx/Iron Dames Ferrari
1x Spirit of Race Ferrari
2x Dempsey-Proton Racing Porsche
1x GR Racing Porsche
1x Northwest Racing AMR Aston Martin
1x D'Station Racing Aston Martin

If the Peugeots turn up and Glickenhaus and Corvette get an extra entry each, that leaves 21 places.


These teams have auto invitations:
LMP2
2x WRT for winning LM last year and for winning the ELMS title
1x United Autosports for finishing 2nd in the ELMS
1x DKR Engineering for winning LMP3 in the ELMS
1x Keating Motorsports (IMSA selection)
1x ??? for winning LMP2 in Asian LMS
1x ??? for winning LMP3 in Asian LMS

GTE Am
1x AF Corse for winning LM last year
2x Iron Lynx for winning ELMS and Le Mans Cup
1x Spirit of Race for finishing 2nd in ELMS
1x Rob Ferriol (IMSA selection)
and some extra slots for finisihing in the top few places in GT in Asian LMS

I heard WRT will pick up 1 of the auto invites and run a 3rd car.
The 2nd WEC car is "Realteam by WRT" hence a different entrant and there is only 1 WRT car, so they can pick up the 2nd invite if they wish to do so.

Beyond whether Peugeot turn up or not it's hard to think of too many narratives around the entry this year. The race badly needs them, and them not being on the grid would be a major F up for the manufacturer IMO.

Despite the relative lack of intrigue I do really enjoy seeing the drivers slot into place.

Is Michael Fassbender expected to turn up in one of the Dempsey-Proton Porsches?
