The eighth FIA World Endurance Championship kicks off at Silverstone on 31 August and 1 September.
Silverstone will be hosting round 4 of the European Le Mans Series on the same weekend.
Change is afoot this season. In LMP1, Toyota Gazoo Racing has hired Brendon Hartley, winner of the 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans 2017 and two-time FIA WEC world champion with Porsche, and a new team joins the line-up: Team LNT will be fielding two Ginetta G60-LT-P1-AERs. Rebellion keeps the pressure on with two Rebellion R13-Gibsons, for Senna/Menezes/Nato and Derani/Berton/Duval.
The LMP2 prototypes will be sporting either Michelin or Goodyear tyres.
In all, 31 cars (6 LMP1, 8 LMP2, 6 LMGTE Pro, 11 LMGTE Am) will be on the starting grid for the first race of the 2019-2020 season. Tickets for the 1000 Miles of Sebring (20 March 2020) are on sale now at www.sebringraceway.com.
The season ends with the 24 Hours of Le Mans on 13-14 June.
