CANADIAN DRIVER MIKAËL GRENIER’S RETURN TO THE SPA 24HOUR RACE WILL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL OCTOBER 22-25
Announced on their website today, GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS and Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli confirmed the postponing of the Total 24 Hours of Spa for 22-25 October.
Originally planned for July 23-26 and because large gatherings are prohibited in Belgium until the end of August due to the pandemic, it will now be staged in October with testing to be held on September 29-30.
On their post, the Series organizers mentioned: “Moving the main event back by three months will ensure that the logistical and organizational challenges posed by the Total 24 Hours of Spa can be met, while the new date will also create a unique visual spectacle in the Ardennes. Running in autumn will mean fewer daylight hours at the circuit, adding further night running and increasing the sporting challenge faced by competitors.”
