Mercedes-AMG, W Series and Veloce added to 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual lineup

The field of teams for the 2021-22 running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual increased to 50 total with some well-known entries on Wednesday (5th January). With only ten days until the big event, the series announced several new entries from the motorsports world that will compete alongside the existing 38 teams already entered.

In total, the grand finale will see all 50 teams, new and existing, split among the LMP and GTE classes to compete for both the victory and championship.

Adding their name to the list for the first time this season is the always potent forces at Mercedes-AMG Petronas Esports. A well known Formula 1 entity, it will have an entry in the LMP class to go to battle against real-world rivals such as Red Bull Racing Esports and Alpine Esports. The W Series, an all-female single-seater racing series, will field a GTE entry in the BMW M8.

Furthermore, the driver’s list for each team is expected to release on Friday 7th January.
