The 2021 entry list features 62 teams, each comprising 3 drivers as standard. Amongst this year’s line-up is ex-Formula 1 driver Robert Kubica who will be driving in LMP2 alongside teammates Louis Delétraz and Yifei Ye.
One of the most versatile drivers in the LMP2 field, Antonio Felix da Costa has raced touring cars, GTs, prototypes, open-wheel racers and more. He’s won championships in petrol powered and electric motorsport, and has been entrusted as a Formula 1 test driver.
But even with this wealth of experience, he says one race stands out above them all: the 24 Hours of Le Mans
Other celebrated ex-F1 stars competing include Juan Pablo Montoya for Dragonspeed USA, and Giancarlo Fisichella, driving an LMGTE for AF Corse.
Meanwhile, the Richard Mille Racing Team has an all-female lineup for the second year running, including 20-year-old rising star Sophia Floersch, and teammates Tatiana Calderon and Beitske Visser.
