48 entered the IMSA final at Petit Le Mans

Petit Le Mans marks the final meeting of the IMSA season where the various titles will be contested. The entry list includes 48 cars on the Atlanta Road track, namely 7 DPi, 7 LMP2, 11 LMP3, 7 GTD Pro and 16 GTD.

No surprises are expected in the first category, which will close the DPi chapter before the entry of the GTP in 2023. We remember the return of the second Cadillac V-DPi entered by Action Express Racing for Mike Rockenfeller, Kamui Kobayashi and Jimmy Johnson. Even if they are not listed, we know the two Cadillac Racing crew with Scott Dixon as backup on the #01 and Ryan Hunter-Reay on the #02. Brendon Hartley will ride the Acura ARX-5/Wayne Taylor Racing and Mike Conway the Cadillac/Whelen Engineering Racing. Four French drivers are involved in DPi: Loïc Duval, Sébastien Bourdais, Olivier Pla, Tristan Vautier.

Tristan Nunez continues the adventures in LMP2 in the Oreca 07/PR1 Mathiasen Motorsports. Note the absence of Kyle Tilley at Era Motorsport, replaced by Christian Rasmussen, an IndyCar driver. Despite his defeat by the justice system in his country, Frits van Eerd is still confirmed in the Racing Nederland Team.

Five Duqueine D08s will battle it out in LMP3 against six Ligier JS P320s.

In GTD Pro, Tom Gamble arrives in the Aston Martin Vantage GT3/The Heart of Racing to support Alex Riberas and Ross Gunn. WeatherTech Racing will trust three newcomers to the seat of its Mercedes-AMG GT3. Ian James will be in GTD at The Heart of Racing. In the Inaugural Championship, Brendan Iribe must combine the same weekend of Petit Le Mans with the GT World Challenge Europe final in Barcelona. Sebastian Priaulx will be the third McLaren 720S GT3 driver alongside Jordan Pepper and Brendan Iribe. Team Hardpoint, AF Corse, Cetilar Racing and Gradient Racing are returning to the 2022 Final.
