Endurance: 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship entries

The third season of the FIA World Endurance Championship has got off to a great start with the announcement of a full season grid of 31 cars.

LM P1 will become the largest segment with no fewer than nine cars. In the Hybrid division there are two cars for reigning world champions Audi, with the next evolution of the Audi R18 e-tron quattro, two for Toyota Racing with the new Toyota TS040 and two entries for Porsche for its new 919.

In the LMP1 Light category Rebellion Racing will enter two of its brand new Rebellion Toyota R-One, with Nicolas Prost and Matthias Beche announced as the lead drivers in each car, and Lotus has entered the brand new T129-AER with Christian Albers.

The LMP2 category has received seven full season entries.

The LMGTE Pro class will also feature seven cars, with a new entry from ELMS LMGTE Champions RAM Racing, the British team stepping up to the World Championship.

Eight entries have been received for the LMGTE Am category with four Ferraris, two Porsches and two Aston Martins.

Unfortunately, Pescarolo Team of Henri Pescarolo was closed February 7 by the Tribunal de Commerce du Mans. We will no longer see the distinctive green cars of Henri Pescarolo on the circuits this season.
