Le Mans 24 Hours organisers have released the full entry list for the 2012 race ahead of next week’s official test.

The list confirms the driving line-ups for 55 of the 56 cars, with only the Toyota TS030 of Anthony Davidson and Sebastien Buemi yet to have a third pilot listed due to the late withdrawal of Hiroaki Ishiura due to back problems.

As expected, Audi’s 2011 race winning trio of Andre Lotterer, Marcel Fassler and Beniot Treluyer will defend their crown together this year in one of the company’s two hybrid entries. Audi’s four-car effort accounts for almost a third of the LMP1 field.

World Endurance Championship regulars David Brabham (JRM HPD ARX-03a LMP1) and John Martin (ADR-Delta Oreca 03-Nissan LMP2) are the only two Australian drivers set to participate.

Dane Allan Simonsen, who will drive for Dick Johnson Racing in this year’s V8 Supercars endurance races, will compete with Aston Martin Racing at Le Mans this year following the off-season withdrawal from GT racing of previous employer Hankook.
