The European Le Mans Series has revealed its entry list for the 2020 season, featuring a bumper grid of 40 cars. The LMP2 field will once again comprise 18 cars, with Oreca staying as the dominant manufacturer in the category with 15 entries. Inter Europol Competition will field two Ligiers, while a single Dallara has been entered by the Carlin team.
A new team by the name ‘Richard Mille Racing’ has also joined the grid, which will be run by WEC stalwart Signatech. Katherine Legge has been confirmed by the outfit as its first driver, while Tatiana Calderon and Sophia Floersch have been linked to the other two seats, potentially forming an all-female team that could also race in the Le Mans 24 Hours.
A total of 13 entries have been confirmed for the new era of LMP3 class, with 10 new Ligier JS P320s joined by three Duqueine M30 – D08s. Both United and Inter Europol will field two Ligiers each in the category, while another JS P320 has been entered by IDEC Sport.
Last year’s championship-winning team EuroInternational will also return to defend its title and has named Asian Le Mans Series champion Harrison Newey as its first drivers.
