    No Le Mans Invite Yet for Corvette Racing and IMSA’s GTLM Competitors

    The ACO has published the first round of entries for this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans but so far IMSA teams which include the Corvette C7.Rs have not yet been added to the entry list.



    The Le Mans entry list that was published yesterday features 42 of the 60 entries for the summer classic with 34 of the cars running in the FIA World Endurance Challenge which features the 24 Hours of Le Mans as one of the races on its series schedule. Another eight cars received automatic invites by the ACO.

    The current field of LMGTE-PRO cars stands at 10 with five two-car teams representing Aston Martin, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, and Porsche.

    It’s believed that seven cars from the GLTM class of the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship have requested entries for the race with the two-car teams from Corvette Racing, Ford/Chip Ganassi, and Porsche, along with the lone Risi Ferrari 488 GTE may also be waiting for an answer.

    The ACO was expected to announce 50 of the 60 entries in the first release so the shortfall has caught some off-guard. The final list is supposed to be published on March 1st.

    We don’t think that the Corvettes are in any jeopardy of not receiving two invites for both the C7.Rs and that probably goes the same to the IMSA-based Ford GTs and Porsches as well. The Risi Ferrari may be on the bubble as it is not racing full-time.

    The Daily Sportcar believes the ACO’s move to invite only 42 instead of the promised 50 entries in the first round could be the series working to pare down the entries of the FIA WEC GT cars and fill them with more LMP1 and LMP2 teams because of the changes that will be coming in several of the series in 2020 and beyond.

    Sportscar365.com offers this list of provisional entries for the 2019 24 Hours of Le Mans:

    Thank you CorvetteBlogger and thank you Plasboy. Interesting news; quite surprising. The Corvette C5.R’s, C6.R’s and C7.R’s, to the best of my memory, were always included in the first round of the of the ACO’s invites for the last fifteen years. Hmm.
