“We are delighted with the way the preparations for next year are going,” CREVENTIC’s Ole Dörlemann says. “Hankook has agreed to become our exclusive tyre supplier and title sponsor and we have a very interesting calendar with great venues. With our 24H PROTO SERIES, we particularly aim at amateur drivers, providing them with a lot of track time at challenging race circuits at affordable costs. Like this, we enable them to experience the real world of endurance racing as our prototype races are the longest races currently available for this type of cars. With immediate effect, teams can sign up for the full season on our website www.24hprotoseries.com/series/registration.”

The Ginetta G57 will compete in its own class.
