The list of teams entered for the 2014 Le Mans 24 Hours (14 - 15 June) has undergone changes due to several withdrawals and the integration of two reserves in LM GTE and three in LM P. In addition, there will be 56 cars at the test day on Sunday 1st June.

In the LM GTE Pro category there have been three withdrawals, all Aston Martins: nos 89 (LM GTE Pro, Aston Martin Racing), 87 (LM GTE Am, Craft Racing) and 96 (LM GTE Am, Aston Martin Racing).

They will be replaced by two Porsche 911 GT3 RSRs, no. 76 (IMSA Performance Matmut, nominated driver Raymond Narac) and no. 79 (Prospeed Compétition, nominated driver Xavier Maassen).

As there are no reserves left in LM GTE, the no. 50 Larbre Compétition Morgan-Judd (nominated driver Jacques Nicolet), the first LM P reserve, has been incorporated into the LM P2 category.

In the LM P category, Millennium Racing is unable to confirm its initial entry of two Oreca 03-Nissans (nos 22 and 23). As a result they have been replaced by the no. 42 Zytek Z11SN-Nissan (Caterham Racing, nominated driver Chris Dyson) and the no. 29 Morgan-Nissan (Pegasus Racing, nominated driver Julien Shell). Although the Signatech-Alpine team was second on the list of LM P reserves it decided not to honour its entry, the no. 30 Alpine A450-Nissan.

There are no entrants left on the reserve lists for the 2014 Le Mans 24 Hours. Fifty-six cars will be at the start of the 82nd event on 14th June.

The breakdown of the field for the Le Mans 24 Hours is as follows: 10 LM P1 (7 LM P1 Hybrids and 3 LM P1 Lights), 18 LM P2s, 9 LM GTE Pros, 18 LM GTE Ams and 1 CDNT (the vehicle in the 56th garage), in other words: 29 prototypes and 27 GTs.

Today the Automobile Club de l’Ouest is publishing the list of participants in the Le Mans 24-Hours test day on 1st June 2014. The no. 79 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR (Prospeed Compétition) will not be present. On the other hand, AF Corse has entered an additional Ferrari 458 Italia. This car whose nominated driver is Duncan Cameron will have the number 55.

Thus, 56 cars will take to the track for this general rehearsal for the Le Mans 24 Hours: 10 LM P1s, 18 LM P2s, 9 LM GTE Pros, 18 LM GTE Ams and 1 CDNT.

How Porsche's Le Mans legend changed the game

The 956 set the bar at the dawn of Group C 40 years ago, and that mark only rose higher through the 1980s, both in the world championship and in the US. It and its successor, the longer-wheelbase 962, are arguably the greatest sportscars of all time.

Why BMW shouldn't be overlooked on its return to prototypes

OPINION: While the focus has been on the exciting prospect of Ferrari vs Porsche at the Le Mans 24 Hours next year, BMW’s factory return to endurance racing should not be ignored. It won't be at the French classic next year as it focuses efforts on the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, but could be a dark horse in 2024 when it returns to La Sarthe with the crack WRT squad.

Toyota is the clear favourite for its fifth Le Mans 24 Hours success in a row, but not as much as it was in 2021. Although its opposition is unchanged, the credentials of Glickenhaus and Alpine have now been proven, while Balance of Performance tweaks have also served to level the playing field. Here's what we can expect at the Circuit de la Sarthe for the 90th edition of the endurance classic.
