Hankook 12H HOCKENHEIMRING returns for 2022
For the third time in as many years, the Hockenheimring will host a round of the endurance-focused 24H SERIES powered by Hankook, organized by Dutch promoter CREVENTIC.
In 2020, the Hockenheimring became the first circuit in Germany to host an official 24H SERIES event, doing so with an exploratory 16-hour format. The Hockenheimring wrote itself yet further into CREVENTIC’s record books when NKPP Racing by Bas Koeten became the first 991-class competitor to win a 24H SERIES race outright in the series’ then-14-year history.
Following universally positive feedback, the 24H SERIES returned to Hockenheim in 2021, now with a more conventional 12-hour format and with an entry list twice the size of its inaugural edition. Fittingly, the 2021 Hankook 12H HOCKENHEIMRING featured one of the closest fought contests of the year, with Germany’s Haegeli by T2 Racing besting former outright series champions Scuderia Praha and Leipert Motorsport to take victory, while Overall TCE Teams’ champion Autorama Motorsport by Wolf-Power Racing took the TCE win a microscopic 4.3 seconds ahead of AC Motorsport, the closest finish to-date in the division!
This year, the Hankook 12H HOCKENHEIMRING returns for its third, and potentially, biggest iteration on 13-14-15 May, with close to 30 entries representing a dozen different countries already registered four months ahead of time. The Netherlands’ Supercar Challenge, ADAC Formula 4 Germany, and the VRM BMW M2 CUP are set to support the main event.
Live coverage of inter-division qualifying sessions and the race proper will be readily available to more nationalities than ever before on the official 24H SERIES YouTube channel, complete with commentary from the esteemed radiolemans.com and regular updates across CREVENTIC’s social media network. Updates regarding live streaming partners are available on 24hseries.com.
As always, full service for all competitors will be provided by Hankook Tires. Also, in 2022, CREVENTIC joins forces with SAS Technologies, a working relationship that introduces LED driver display systems – a popular proponent of the World Endurance Championship and IMSA among others – to the 24H SERIES for the first time.
