There’s been a further change to the entry list for next month’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, as the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) announced Tuesday the withdrawal of Lotus, which was set to compete in the new-for-2014 LMP1-L class.

The Kodewa-run effort, which had faced delays with the build of the new Lotus T129 AER, has given way for Millennium Racing to rejoin the field. The UAE-backed effort, run by Britain’s Delta Motorsport, was originally forced out of the race due to delays in their funding.
