International GT Open Barcelona - Entry List
The Circuit de Catalunya will be busy this weekend with a huge entry for the final International GT Open race of the year, the race again a combined affair with the Spanish GT Championship.

A total of 65 cars are listed on the official entry, 63 will be permitted to start the 2 hour race tomorrow, the maximum allowed under the circuit's FIA licence. The organisers reportedly had to turn as many as a further 20 cars away!

That entry includes a hugely impressive 32 GTA (GT2) class cars, with no less than eleven Ferrari 430s (plus four 360s) doing battle with seven Porsches (911 GT3 R, RS and RSRs are all represented), four Mosler MT900Rs, a Marcos LM600 and a trio of SEATs (a pair of Cupra GTs and an older Toledo GT). On the reserve list there is a pair of Chryler Vipers looming too.

GPC, RSV, Edil Cris, Team Icer Brakes, Victor Engineering, ASM Racing for Portugal, Playteam AF Corse and The Automobil Club d'Andorra all field at least one Ferrari 430 with Autorlando, Noel del Bello Racing, Drivex, Ruffier Racing, V-Line and Team Galp flying the Porsche flag.

Andrea Montermini, Fabrizio de Simone, Peter Sundberg, John Bosch, Paolo Ruberti and Maurizio Mediani are amongst the Ferrari driving squads whilst Johnny Mowlem, Miguel Angel de Castro, Miguel Amaral and Patrick Bourdais are all aboard Porsches.

There is a major boost for the GTS (GT3) class, after a couple of races where the Racing Box Vipers were unopposed there is an impressive 16 car entry this time around, with only the Aston Martin DBRS9 unrepresented from the 2006 FIA GT3 field.

Damax fields a solo Ascari for British GT Champion Jonny Lang and Aston DBRS9 racer Martin Rich. MIK Corse will race a pair of Lamborghini Gallardos, AF Corse bring along their trio of Maseratis whilst Larbre and Riverside have entered a sole Porsche 997 and Chevrolet Corvette Z06 respectively.

Yet to be confirmed is whether the Racing Box team will run their newly upgraded GTA (GT2) spec Viper this weekend.

GTB features the usual mix of Cup Class Porsches and Ferraris but with a welcome twist - ex F1 man Alessandro Nannini will be aboard a GTB Ferrari 360.

This will be the last time that the GT Open joins forces with the Spanish GT Championship: after an impressive opening season, the Jesus Pareja run series will run alone next season.
