On the French side, Romain Dumas and Julien Andlauer will drive the Rutronik Racing Porsche, while Kevin Estre will drive the fluorescent yellow and green Manthey Racing Porsche. Team GetSpeed ​​will rely on Jules Gounon and Matthieu Vaxiviere.

The Frikadelli team will partly speak the language of Molière thanks to Mathieu Jaminet, Patrick Pilet and Frédéric Makowiecki. The Lamborghini representative Franck Perera will reinforce the FFF Racing Team. Celia Martin will be driving an Audi R8 LMS GT4 in the 100% female WS Racing team.

An original team will be present, composed of Carlos Tavares (CEO of Stellantis), Jean-Philippe Imparato (Director of Alfa Romeo) and François Wales (boss of Peugeot Sport) in an Opel Astra Cup. In TCR, Jean-Karl Vernay will discover the Green Hell with Hyundai.
