ACO to confirm Le Mans 24 entry list tomorrow

Sunday, February 27, 2022


Tomorrow will see the confirmation from the ACO of the entry list (and indeed expected long reserve list) for this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans in June.

Whilst we already know that this year’s full season entries for the World Endurance Championship will again get automatic and guaranteed entry into this flagship event, there remains some doubt as the fortunes of the remaining Aston Martin Racing Partner Teams entries from other ACO rules series.

With the opening track action of the WEC’s tenth season just over two weeks away at the official Prologue over at Sebring in mid-March, there is still a question or two that needs to be confirmed for that as well as the LM24 entry.

The #33 TF Sport AMR Vantage GTE entry has already been fully confirmed with Florian Latorre and Marco Sorenson joining Ben Keating aboard that Am class car as have the #777 D’Station Racing with TF Sport Vantage GTE who recently confirmed Charlie Fagg as joining established team drivers Satoshi Hoshino and Tomonobu Fujii.

That is on top of a continuing question over the validity of David Pittard’s drive within the #98 Northwest AMR entry of Paul Dalla Lana and Nicki Thiim after the Brit was upgraded by the FIA from Silver to Gold. The GTE Am Class graded would prohibit a Bronze/Gold/Platinum combination so the entry list for tomorrow might just answer that question?

The other questions will be whether the TF Sport European Le Mans Series entries of either John Hartshorne and Ahmad Al Harthy will be successful this year with expected entry requests bound to put available places beyond the thirty seven car full season WEC entry at a premium. 

Both of these squads do have an established history with ACO rules series including the ELMS and Asian Le Mans Series – but will that be enough in 2022 if they have even applied which we believe that they must have?!?!
