After a collision between the two Swiss Racing Team Lamborghini's, the team decided to miss the Tourist Trophy as they could not repair the damage in time for the weekend. DKR Engineering returned to the grid with the one car after missing the Sachsenring round due to lack of spare parts available. Markus Palttala and Andreas Zuber return to the series. Palttala returns behind the wheel of a Ford GT replacing Yann Clairay in the No. 10 Belgian Racing machine, racing alongside Antoine Leclerc. He raced a full season for Marc VDS Racing Team in 2010. Zuber raced for Exim Bank Team China alongside Mike Hezemans, replacing Nick Catsburg. Zuber raced only the first two rounds in 2010 for Phoenix Racing / Carsport who also ran a Corvette similar to the one he used at Silverstone. Dimitri Enjalbert makes his GT1 début for DKR Engineering alongside French compatriot Michaël Rossi, replacing Matteo Bobbi.
