Second edition Hankook 24H COTA USA, 16-17-18 November 2018

17.07.2018: Later this year, the 5.5km Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, will host the second annual Hankook 24H COTA USA on 16-17-18 November for Touring and GT cars. This is an international race, organized in cooperation with the SCCA PRO Racing, par


Later this year, the 5.5km Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, will host the second annual Hankook 24H COTA USA on 16-17-18 November for Touring and GT cars.




This is an international race, organized in cooperation with the SCCA PRO Racing, part of the 24H SERIES and sanctioned by FIA and ACCUS where we welcome gentlemen drivers, amateurs, semi-pros and pros.



And even though there are more than four months to go before the green flag drops, preliminary entry numbers are already surpass the 45+ teams that signed up for last year’s endurance event, a list that include American incumbents Freem USA, Classic BMW and THRW Honda Racing, AR Motorsports, De La Torre Racing, Rearden Racing, The Porsche Broker and Canadian team TWOth Autosport Inc.

 

Teams and drivers will be fighting tooth and nail for both overall and class wins and podium positions, as well as the coveted Championship of the Continents, which will be decided at the curtain closer in Austin.




If wheel-to-wheel action at home isn’t enough of an incentive, competitors also get the chance to race around one of North America’s most exciting permanent racing facilities, and the home of the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix.




Provisional Entry List

What happens at the Hankook 24H COTA USA?
 


Format



In-keeping with the series’ professional yet enjoyable atmosphere, the Hankook 24H COTA USA will once again be split into two separate ‘halves’, allowing teams and drivers time to fully recuperate during the night and repair their hard-pushed chargers as required.
 


Much like last year, ‘part one’ of the Hankook 24H COTA USA will run for 14 hours between 09.00 hrs (local time) to 23.00 hrs on Saturday 17th before the ‘restart’ and final 10 hours between 08.00 hrs and 18.00 hrs on Sunday 18th. Throw in Free Practice and Qualifying sessions on Friday 16th – plus two optional Private Test sessions the day before – and drivers will have plenty of opportunities to jump behind the wheel.
 



Class-structure and driver levels



‘Race what you bring’ is a mantra CREVENTIC prides itself on in an era of increasingly restrictive motor racing regulations: providing your racing machine meets our technical and performance regulations, we will find you a berth in all of our multi-class races. It’s a structure that allows the 24H SERIES to welcome fire-breathing GT3s, Porsche Cup cars, tin top touring cars and pretty much everything else in-between.



From Renault Clio, BMW M235, GT4, Porsche 991, upto GT3, like Mercedes AMG GT3, etc.
 


Drivers from all walks of life and experience meanwhile are also welcome, from full-on professionals to ‘gentlemen’ enthusiasts. All you’ll need is an international racing licence grade C or B, verified pre-event and your racing gear, and we’ll make sure we get you on-track.
 


Safety



Animated though the paddock might be, CREVENTIC takes the safety of each of its competitors incredibly seriously. Consequently, all on-track activity is monitored constantly by our experienced race director and his appointed team at race control during every 24H SERIES event. Up to 100 marshals will also be on duty throughout the weekend, ensuring incidents and on-track complications are dealt with quickly and efficiently. 
 



Hankook Tires



Now entering its 5 year in partnership with CREVENTIC, Hankook continues its tireless support of the 24H SERIES. Be it a GT, TCE or prototype entry, every team is guaranteed a full quota of rubber throughout the COTA weekend courtesy of Hankook’s transitory headquarters in the paddock and it’s diligent team of 50+ engineers working on-site. 
 



Central Fuel Station

Teams are also under no obligation to provide their own fuel rigs, with series partner Panta Racing Fuels providing and managing a centralised fuel station in the pitlane. Commissioned to the highest possible safety standards and designed to keep racing fair across the board, the fuel station is a unique facet of the 24H SERIES we’re confident our American competitors will get a kick out of.



Live Broadcast


Plus, every single 24H SERIES event is transmitted live around the world via our official live streaming service and radiolemans.com, one of – if not THE – most respected endurance racing broadcasters in the world.

 

Who is Creventic




Founded in 2005, CREVENTIC has fast established itself as one of the most professional organizing bodies in the world of motorsport. Built by, and for, keen amateur racers, CREVENTIC’s network – based out of Gennep in The Netherlands – has grown substantially since its ‘humble’ beginnings to become one of Europe’s most respected racing bodies, offering high-quality professional service as well as a welcoming, approachable atmosphere in each of its paddocks.
 


At CREVENTIC, we work tirelessly to create an open environment that’s comfortable as well as professional, to offer the best possible endurance racing experience for everyone, everywhere, with the best value for money, and to give YOU the most professional and approachable motor racing service you’ve ever had. In short, CREVENTIC wants to put the fun first in motor racing.



How can CREVENTIC make life easier for participating competitors?

Any way we can! For starters, teams and drivers need not concern themselves with transporting their equipment to and from the circuit. Simply pack your containers with everything you will need at COTA, and we’ll take care of the rest. Our experienced team will also be on-hand at COTA in November to make sure your 24H SERIES experience is the best it possibly can be.
