Four weeks ahead of the 2017 Total 24 Hours of Spa, 65 cars will participate in the Official Test Day tomorrow (Tuesday 4 July).

With eight hours of track time available throughout the day, the teams and drivers will be looking to make the most of the preparation time for what is arguably is the greatest GT3 race.

Highlights on the entry list include the #00 Good Smile Racing & Team UKYO Mercedes-AMG, with former F1-driver Kamui Kobayashi leading an all-Japanese lineup.

Bentley Team ABT will get their first taste of Blancpain GT Series action along with the KÜS Team75 Motorsport Bernhard team who will be running former Total 24 Hours of Spa-winner Laurens Vanthoor in their Porsche 991.

The Official Test Day will see track action from 9.00 to 12.00, and from 13.00 to 18.00. Entrance for the public is absolutely free.
