About 24H SERIES
The 24H SERIES powered by Hankook is an FIA-approved international series of 12- and 24-hour endurance race events aimed at amateurs, semi-professionals and professional drivers. A wide variety of ‘tin top’ touring cars, GTs and 24H-Specials (e.g. silhouette cars) are eligible to race, from ‘hot hatchbacks’ up to proper GT3 machinery and purpose-built race cars. An established structure of classes and liberal technical regulations allow teams to compete without having to change their cars for the 24H SERIES, thus helping them to save costs. Points are awarded for overall teams’ and drivers’ championships, a separate Ladies’ Cup as well as for the various classes.
Affordable, a convivial atmosphere with teams and drivers from all over the world and fair competition on the track are the main characteristics of the 24H SERIES and 24H TCE SERIES events, allowing all teams and drivers to enjoy the fascination of motorsport together.
