As we’re a little less than one month out from the 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans, the full entry list for the race has been updated by the ACO to reflect team additions and withdrawals, and all 168 drivers for the 56 cars named.
Tuesday’s addition and subtraction sees the Lotus team, with its yet untested T129 LMP1-L entry removed and Millennium Racing back in its place with an LMP2 ORECA 03 Nissan for John Martin, Fabien Giroix and Oliver Turvey, the No. 22.
Millennium withdrew from the opening two races of the 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship season due to late payments, which left Mike Conway, Stefan Johansson and Shinji Nakano (would have driven the team’s No. 23 car) and the No. 22’s drivers sidelined.
The entry list for Le Mans has these stipulations: the LMP1 and GTE-Pro classes have no limitations on the number of Platinum and Gold-rated drivers (fully professional drivers), while the LMP2 class requires at least one Silver-rated driver (non-professional who makes their source of income elsewhere from racing) and the GTE-Am class only allows one Platinum or Gold driver, and at least one Bronze-rated driver (fully gentleman driver).
So when you see the P, G, S, or B designation by each driver’s name on the entry list, you know what that means.
