Graff Racing will kick off activities on Sun., June 11, with Porsche Team and Aston Martin Racing among the leading teams to go through scrutineering on the opening day, in front of thousands of fans.
ARC Bratislava will be the first team to go through on Monday, which will again see the majority of teams take part.
Additional scrutineering for the LMP1 hybrids will take place on Tuesday, as has been the case in recent years, due to the complexities of the cars.
