Following the success of last year’s inaugural running in the current format, the Hankook 12H EPILOG BRNO (October 14-16, 2016) will be extended to a full-blown 24-hour race for this year. Thus, the official name of the race will be Hankook 24H EPILOG BRNO. Instead of from midday till midnight on Saturday, October 15, the race will now be held from midday on Saturday till midday on Sunday, October 16, with further details to be announced in due course. The news was announced at Circuit Paul Ricard, where the Hankook 24H CIRCUIT PAUL RICARD, the fifth round of the 24H SERIES powered by Hankook, is taking place this weekend. Thus, the number of 24-hour races in this year’s series will be expanded to four, after Dubai, Circuit Paul Ricard and Barcelona.
“When we announced the calendar for this year, we already included the possibility of upgrading our race at Brno to a duration of 24 hours,” says Helen Roukens on behalf of CREVENTIC, the Dutch agency that is the promoter and organiser of the 24H SERIES powered by Hankook in co-operation with the Dutch National Racing Team (DNRT). “This is a unique opportunity, because not too many circuits offer the possibility to run a 24-hour race. The step was made following requests from many drivers, who wanted to race at Brno for 24 hours, and a survey among our regularly participating teams led to a majority of positive answers.”
