As announced earlier this week, the calendar for the 2015 24H Series powered by Hankook has been revised.
Following requests from various teams and drivers, new dates have been set for three rounds of the series.
The third round of the season, the Hankook 12H Zandvoort, will now be run on 29 and 30 May, 2015.
Starting the second half of the season, the inaugural Hankook 24H Circuit Paul Ricard has been postponed by one week to 10-12 July, 2015.
For the sixth and final round of the Series, not only a new date has been set: a planned resurfacing of the Hungaroring meant that an alternative venue had to be found as well. Thus, the Automotodrom Brno in the Czech Republic will host the inaugural Hankook 12H Epilog Brno to conclude the 2015 season on 9 and 10 October, 2015.
“We already published a draft calendar for our 24H Series powered by Hankook in early September, so we were the first to come up with dates for our races,” says Gerrie Willems on behalf of CREVENTIC.
“However, as dates for other endurance races were published as well, some potential clashes came up and teams approached us with requests to look out for other possibilities. For us, service to teams and drivers has always been our main focus and we are probably a little bit more flexible in finding alternative dates for our events than other organisations.
“Therefore, we are glad that, once again in good co-operation with management of the various circuits, we have found some good dates that will allow teams and drivers to take part in as many races as possible.
“At Zandvoort, we keep the same weekend we already had this year. The Paul Ricard round was postponed by one week.
“As to Hungaroring, the circuit management informed us that they planned to carry out a resurfacing of the track, something that could only be done in autumn, so we had to look for a different venue, which we found in the beautiful Automotodrom Brno, a circuit with a long heritage in the Czech Republic. Moreover, the ‘Epilog’ event as an end-of-season endurance race at Brno has a tradition of many years, so we are glad that this prestigious title will now be used for our race.”
