Extra Day Added To Pre-Spa 24 Hours Test

Now a two-day event

The official test ahead of the 24 Hours of Spa is set to be a two-day test in 2019, on the 2nd and 3rd of July.

In the past the test has been over just one day, but SRO has opted to make it a longer event due to the continued rise in the level of competition and the busy schedule during race week.

The test will be open to the public at no cost of admission, meaning fans can head trackside and get a glimpse of the 2019 grid before race week. The test will kick off a packed month of activities at the Belgian venue, with the SRO Spa Speedweek (19-21 July) once again taking place over the weekend before the Total 24 Hours of Spa.

Successfully staged for the first time in 2018, the returning Speedweek will include on-track action from the British GT Championship and Blancpain GT Sports Club among other categories. As was the case last year, entry to the event will be free of charge.

Preparations for the 71st running of the Total 24 Hours of Spa will begin on the following Monday (July 22), with the first track action taking place on Tuesday. The festivities will continue on Wednesday 24 July with the annual parade to Spa town centre, quickly followed by practice and qualifying on Thursday and Friday (July 25/26).

The race itself will play out across Saturday and Sunday (July 27/28). A host of exciting support series will precede the main event, while further entertainment, including the Fan Zone and music concert, will run throughout the on-track contest.
