FIA WEC bulging in 2022

The FIA World Endurance Championship will enter the 2022 season with the largest entry list in its 10-year history.

A total of 39 cars has entered the full season, but with a few that will show up at a slightly later stage in the year.

The Hypercar category will consist of two cars from Toyota Gazoo Racing, one from Alpine Elf Team and a single car from Glickenhaus. In addition to those, there will be two cars from Peugeot TotalEnergies at a later point in the season, since they are still developing on their car.

The LMP2 category is still very attractive to teams and drivers, even though there have been a few changes to the names. The defending Champions from Team WRT will enter two cars, JOTA will bring two cars, United Autosports will bring two cars, Richard Mille Racing Team a single entry, Team Penske a single entry, Vector Sport a single entry, Inter Europol Competition a single entry, Ultimate will advance from ELMS with a single car, the new Prema Orlen Team will bring a single car, ARC Bratislava a single entry, G-Drive Racing a single entry, and a single AF Corse entry.

The GTE Pro category will have a slight boost this season, in its very final season, with GTE Am only being the future. Porsche will bring two cars, AF Corse Ferrari will bring two cars, and Corvette Racing will bring a single car.

There are 13 entries to GTE Am, with a good mix of TF Sport with two Aston Martin Vantage cars, with one being under their own name, and the second being run under the D’Station Racing banner. Dempsey-Proton Racing will bring Porsche cars, AF Corse Ferrari with two, Team Project 1 Porsche with two, Iron Lynx/Iron Dames Ferrari with two, Spirit of Race with a single entry, GR Racing with a single entry, and Northwest AMR with a single entry.

We will have a deeper dive into the entry list later today, with some of the driver names already confirmed.

The 2022 season of the FIA World Endurance Championship will start on 18 March with the 1000 Miles race at Sebring International Raceway in Florida.
