Hankook 12H MUGELLO - GT3 and GTX preview

12.03.2021: • Two-time event winner Herberth Motorsport confirms four entries. • 2019 series champion Scuderia Praha makes series return. • Three Ferraris on the grid for the Hankook 12H MUGELLO.

•    Two-time event winner Herberth Motorsport confirms four entries.

•    2019 series champion Scuderia Praha makes series return.

•    Three Ferraris on the grid for the Hankook 12H MUGELLO.

•    Lotus returns to the 24H SERIES grid with PB Racing.
 




Herberth Motorsport, a two-time winner of the Hankook 12H MUGELLO in 2014 and 2020, has confirmed three Porsche 991 GT3 Rs for the GT division’s top class, as well as a Porsche 991-II Cup for the ‘991’ class. Ironically, despite being a Porsche customer consistently since the late 1990s, this marks the first time the former series champion will run a Porsche 911-II Cup at a 24H SERIES event.


 
The event’s only other multi-time winner, Scuderia Praha, will also be competing in Mugello. A victor in 2017, the Czech team, now running under the ‘MiddleCap racing with Scuderia Praha’ banner, took its second event win in 2019 en-route to that year’s 24H SERIES Europe Overall GT Teams’.
 


Reigning GT3-AM class champion CP Racing continues its title defence at the Hankook 12H MUGELLO. The resident ‘American team’ took its first category win under its new nomenclature at last year’s Hankook 16H HOCKENHEIMRING, immediately following that up with two runners-up spots to close out the season.



Fellow Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo runner MP Racing will also be in action. The Bolzano-based outfit scored its first overall series podium at last year’s season finale, which was also held at Mugello.
 


Former Hankook 24H DUBAI winner Car Collection Motorsport has confirmed two Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evos for Mugello, and newcomer Rutronik Racing by TECE will also represent Audi in the GT3 class. The latter, which will make its maiden 24H SERIES outing in Tuscany, is set to compete for the Overall GT Teams’ title having confirmed a full season campaign for its R8 LMS GT3 Evo.
 


Equipe Verschuur, which scored two consecutive pole positions last year at Monza and Hockenheim, returns to action with its tenured Renault R.S.01. Team Zakspeed meanwhile, following a tough race in Dubai, has registered a Mercedes-AMG GT3.


 
Series newcomer Kessel Racing will be a hot favourite for victory among the Italian fans. The Swiss team, whose history with Ferrari dates back to 2000, will compete with a 488 GT3, as will fellow debutant Hella Pagid - racing one, which took SP9 honours in the VLN last year. Radical Sportscar’s official Swiss importer, Haegeli by T2 Racing, rounds out the newcomers in GT3 with its Porsche 911 GT3 R.
 


Across in the GTX class, PB Racing will compete at the Hankook 12H MUGELLO with a two-car line-up split across two divisions. The team’s Lotus Exige V6 Cup R will race in GTX while the sister Lotus Elise Cup PB-R will race for TCX honours.



Among the Italian team’s closest rivals in GTX will be France’s Vortex V8, which has entered two Vortex 1.0 lightweight sports cars, and German powerhouse Reiter Engineering, which continues development work on the new KTM X-BOW GTX.  
 


Leipert Motorsport and Lithuania’s Siauliai - RD Signs racing team will give the Italian fans plenty to cheer for, both having entered one Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo apiece. Leipert Motorsport, the 24H SERIES Continents Overall GT Teams’ champion in 2019, started its season strongly with a class win in Dubai.
