The team of Marc VDS Racing Team who run four Ford GT's were doubtful to run in this round as engine supply issues could have forced them to miss the Paul Ricard round, meaning there could have been just twelve cars competing.[2] After a collision between the two Swiss Racing Team Lamborghini's at the Sachsenring round, the team were scheduled to return at this event with one car but then decided to withdraw it from the third event in a row. Andreas Zuber is back behind the wheel of the No. 11 Exim Bank Corvette alongside regular Mike Hezemans. Frédéric Makowiecki also returns for Marc VDS Racing Team competing with Maxime Martin in car No. 41 replacing Bertrand Baguette.
