The TUDOR United SportsCar Championship announced its entry list late Friday afternoon, with nearly 70 cars confirmed across the merged series’ four classes: Prototype (P, combination of ALMS P2, Rolex Series DP and DeltaWing, Prototype Challenge (ALMS PC), GT Le Mans (ALMS GT) and GT Daytona (Rolex GT, ALMS GTC).

Here’s a link to the full breakdown. We’ll hit each class here briefly:

P

There are 17 cars listed with three alternates. Only four teams (Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates, Action Express Racing, SpeedSource and Extreme Speed Motorsports) will field two cars. The nine single-car entries come from: DeltaWing Racing Cars, Wayne Taylor Racing, Marsh Racing, OAK Racing, Highway to Help, Michael Shank Racing, Spirit of Daytona Racing, GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing and one car TBA.

The TBA, however, is identified as Pickett Racing with a car TBA on the entry PDF. Additionally, part-time entries in the P class are Action Express’ and Ganassi’s second cars, and GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing entry. OAK’s is listed as full season on the PDF, but part-time in the release. 8Star and Starworks Motorsport, full-season Rolex DP teams in 2013, have been downgraded to alternate entries and a third alternate comes from Libra Racing.

PC

All 12 cars utilize the spec ORECAFLM09 chassis and like their P brethren, will run on Continental Tires. The Starworks, RSR, BAR1 and Level 5 Motorsports teams all have two cars entered with single cars coming from CORE autosport, 8Star Motorsports, Performance Tech Motorsports and PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports.

8Star and Starworks are listed as alternates in the P class, so only have their PC entries guaranteed for now. PC has two alternates, a car apiece from Pickett and JDC/Miller.

GTLM

The manufacturer playground, and the only class with open tire competition. Of the 12 cars entered, 10 will be full season: two apiece from Corvette Racing, BMW Team RLL, SRT Motorsports and Porsche North America (run by CORE autosport) and single cars from Risi Competizione and Team Falken Tire. Additional NAEC entries come from Krohn Racing and Aston Martin Racing.

GTD

A pro-am class, back on Continental Tires, and the largest class revealed with 28 cars entered and four alternates. 12 of the 28 are the new Porsche GT America, with other entries running an Aston Martin Vantage, Audi R8 LMS, Ferrari 458 Italia, SRT Viper GT3-R, BMW Z4, and one team and car to be announced. Most teams are fielding two cars with a handful of others doing single cars.

NUMEROLOGY

Earlier this year, the TUDOR Championship released a list of tentative car count capacities. The original projections called for as many as 63 total cars per pit lane space requirements. Right now, the PC (12 confirmed full-season) and GTD (28 total, with 25 full season, one Rolex 24 only and two NAEC) exceed their projected caps of 10 and 19-21, respectively.

The next step of the process, undoubtedly, will be figuring out whether all cars gaining an entry today will be able to race.
