The Automobile Club l’Ouest has confirmed today that five teams have withdrawn from this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans – three from the GTE categories and two from the LMP2 category.

Aston Martin Racing has chosen to pull their No. 89 team from GTE-Pro as well as their No. 96 team from GTE-Am. Another Aston Martin team, the No. 87 from Craft Racing, has also left the entry list.

Those cars will be replaced by a pair of Porsches from IMSA Performance Matmut (No. 76) and Prospeed Competition (No. 79). With no reserves left in GTE, the first reserve from the LMP ranks – the No. 50 Morgan-Judd from Larbre Competition – has been integrated into the LMP2 category.

Millennium Racing yanked their two LMP2 entries, the No. 22 and 23 Oreca 03-Nissans. Replacing them will be the No. 42 Zytek-Nissan from Caterham Racing and the No. 29 Pegasus Racing Morgan-Nissan.

That leaves no more reserves available for the 56-car field. The new breakdown of the field lists 10 LMP1 entries, 18 LMP2 entries, 9 GTE-Pro entries, 18 GTE-Am entries, and the Nissan ZEOD RC in Garage 56.
