Which is why they can name the drivers for that car - but not an additional one as that would have to be invited by the Selection Committee

Feels like a two-car LM effort is a no-brainer and I don't think they'd have any issues getting that second entry through if that's what they wanted. You're at such a disadvantage with a single car.

Depends a lot on Glick, and GG would clearly know more, but it doesn't feel like 14 top class cars is all that unrealistic next year.

What about a third entry on top of a second Ganassi or Action Express (Whelen Racing) one?

Looks like maybe a single works Corvette expected and possibly a private entry too next year in GT-Am.

Worth having a look at this revised list to see whether it breaks up any lineups (spoiler: it does)

Odd article, with no GTE-Pro next year in WEC or at LM my understanding is there can't be a fully works entry, it would have to be in GTE-Am, which requires a Bronze and Silver rated driver with one Platinum at best.

Corvette Racing is continuing its factory program in IMSA's GTD class - 1 car for 2023, possibly 2 new GT3 cars for 2024. In addition, they plan on supplying customer cars (again, the new GT3 car under development) for IMSA's GTD and WEC's GT (Am only) classes starting 2024.

Next year's WEC's GTE class will only see Am entries so no official involvement from Corvette Racing, just support but more than likely we'll see one or more factory drivers being part of that single car program.

Aston had works entries in GT-Am for years. Unless the regs changed I don't think there's an issue. it's just a question of what Corvette want to do and how much they value being there at Le Mans.

My point is more about the drivers they are allowed to use, only one works driver will be allowed, the Aston GTE-Am entries were mainly funded by others don't forget, just run by Prodrive under the AMR banner.

Anyway, time will tell, but it would be good to see a Corvette (or two) in GTE-Am for the final season!

Johnny O'Connell becomes a bronze on Jan 1st. That would be pretty cool. Timing is just perfect. There must be a young sneaky silver they can find and then whoever isn't in a Hypercar by that point takes the final seat.

We’re guaranteed getting the top class in double figures, so that is great. Maybe we won’t get to twenty, but definitely mid teens at best

I do see a 3rd Toyota realistic, and I hope Caddy gets all 3 invites....however ByKolles and Fraschitti are not serious candidates.....
Glickenhaus will bring at least one car...I hope
