24H Series European Season Underway At Mugello

Live coverage in sound and vision available

The European season for the 24H Series Powered by Hankook is underway with the first track action for the 12H Mugello.

A provisional 56 car entry is listed for the Tuscan track, the series returning after missing their traditional Italian weekend last season.

Two years ago, Czech outfit Scuderia Praha scored a win for Ferrari. For this year’s race, no less than six Ferraris have been entered, the highest number of prancing horses to compete in a CREVENTIC event to date.

Scuderia Praha is back, albeit now under the Bohemia Energy racing with Scuderia Praha moniker, while other Ferrari teams are Rinaldi Racing and Team Wochenspiegel Monschau, the well known German squad opting to race in 24H Series after leaving the VLN in a protest about power level reductions for their pair of Ferrari 488 GT3s.

In the A6 class, they will be facing competition from teams representing Audi, Lamborghini, Mercedes-AMG and Porsche. A pair of KTMs is running in the SPX class. Seven Porsche Cup cars have been entered for the 991 class. Two BMWs and another KTM in the SP2 class and five GT4 cars from Aston Martin (including the European debut of the new Aston Martin Vantage GT4), BMW and Mercedes-AMG round out the GT field.

Back in 2017, there was no separate TCE class, but the best placed touring car in the race at Mugello at the time was a BMW entered by Bonk Motorsport. For this year’s Hankook 12H MUGELLO, the German team has announced its presence again with no less than five cars across the GT4, TCR and A3 categories.

The TCR category is at the forefront of the TCE pack, featuring a 13 car class comprising Audi, Cupra, Honda, Hyundai, SEAT and Volkswagen. In the SP3 class, a Vortex silhouette car will be up against a BMW and a Porsche while a BMW, a Honda and a Peugeot in the A3 class round out the field. There will be separate starting groups for the GT segment and the TCE segment.

KTM X-Bows have been regular competitors in the 24H SERIES powered by Hankook over the years, but at Mugello, the X-Bow Battle will be serving as the official support category with two races of 25 minutes each.

The KTM series has its free practice sessions and qualifying on Thursday, alternating with two optional private tests for competitors in the 24H SERIES.

Activities on Friday, 29 March, start with the first race of the X-Bow Battle, followed by Free Practice for the 24H SERIES from 10.05-11.35 hrs.

Qualifying for the TCE segment is scheduled from 12.05-12.35, GT teams have their qualifying from 12.45-13.15 hrs.

After the second X-Bow Battle race, the first three hours of the Hankook 12H MUGELLO will be held from 15.30-18.30 hrs, with an intervention break under parc fermé conditions during the evening and the night.

Racing resumes on Saturday, 30 March, at 9.00 hrs, with the finish at 18.00 hrs.

Live streaming in HD quality with commentary from the Radio Show Limited team is available on the series’ website and Youtube channel as well as Motortrend on Demand.
