The maximum grid capacity for the Hankook 24H DUBAI (January 14-16, 2016) has already been reached, but there is also plenty of interest for the other rounds of the 2016 24H SERIES powered by Hankook.

“Therefore, we strongly advise teams who want to compete in one of our rounds to submit a pre-registration as quickly as possible, to avoid disappointment,” says Daphne Gengler on behalf of CREVENTIC. The Dutch agency is the promoter and organiser of the 24H SERIES powered by Hankook, in co-operation with the Dutch National Racing Team (DNRT).

“When teams have submitted a pre-registration, we know that they are interested and we can keep them informed, for instance when we expect having to work with a waiting list.”

The 24H SERIES powered by Hankook ran with full FIA International Series status for the first time in 2015. The inaugural season was a huge success and interest for next year’s series is even bigger as a result.

Traditionally, the Hankook 24H DUBAI will be the season opener, followed by a twelve-hour race at the Mugello circuit in Italy’s beautiful Tuscany region (March 18-19, 2016), the inaugural Hankook 24H SILVERSTONE – European Touring Car Edition (April 1-3, 2016) and another twelve-hour race at Circuit Park Zandvoort in The Netherlands (May 6-7, 2016).

The action continues in the south of France with the Hankook 24H PAUL RICARD (July 15-17, 2016), followed by the Hankook 24H BARCELONA (September 2-4, 2016). After this year’s successful premiere, the 2016 season will again be concluded with the Hankook 12H EPILOG BRNO (October 7-8, 2016).

 Entries can be made for the entire series or on a race-by-race basis.

 “This year, we already had to work with a waiting list for the race at Barcelona while there was also a lot of interest for the race in Brno. Now, we again have to put teams on a waiting list for Dubai and we are expecting waiting lists for other rounds, too” Daphne Gengler says.
“Of course, this clearly reflects the popularity of our series, but on the other hand, it is also difficult for us as we sometimes even have to turn down entries from teams who are regular competitors in our events. In the case of Dubai, we already had to put 20 teams on the waiting list. That does not really fit in well with our service-orientated philosophy, but, of course, we have to work within the rules that specify a maximum number of cars for each circuit for safety reasons. To secure their slot on the grid, we really advise teams to act quickly. They can either submit their entry for the entire series, or on a race-by-race basis.”
Regulations for the 2016 24H SERIES powered by Hankook have been published on the series’ website,www.24hseries.com. New for 2016 are separate rankings for GT drivers and teams with six events and for touring car drivers and teams with seven events, including the inaugural Hankook 24H SILVERSTONE – European Touring Car Edition.
For the race at Silverstone, separate classes for Youngtimers and the VW Fun Cup have been added to the portfolio. Both for the GT and touring car rankings, the best five results will be taken into account. Another new element for 2016 is the ‘rookie’ ranking for drivers under 25 years of age.
