Not enough entries for this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans has forced to ACO to reopen the entry application list.
Losing the Russian G-Drive Racing team has not helped.

“Recent measures taken by international sporting bodies following the invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops affect motorsport teams and drivers.
“The Selection Committee has therefore decided to invite new applications for the 2022 24 Hours of Le Mans for a limited 48-hour period.
“Candidates must file their applications in due form and in accordance with statutory conditions from 3 p.m. on Monday 7 March until 3 p.m. on Wednesday 9 March.”
