12H Mugello replaces Zandvoort
Creventic has announced that local Covid-19 restrictions do not allow any events to take place at Zandvoort. The Dutch organizer found an alternate location for the season finale, that will be held at Mugello at the same date. The Hankook 12H Mugello will take place on 13-14 November with a compact split-race format.
“We were looking forward to our return at Circuit Zandvoort and are sad to confirm that the race is not allowed to take place“, Creventic operational manager, Peter Freij said. “However, in these difficult circumstances, we have full understanding towards the local restrictions and decisions and would like to extend our thanks to the staff of Zandvoort for their cooperative approach throughout the entire process. We are very happy that Mugello was available for the same date on such short notice. We know the circuit from many years of splendid cooperation, they know our series and it is a perfect fit for our championship finale. These times require a certain amount of flexibility and we are positive that we can offer a race on the same weekend.”
The 24H Series powered by Hankook will return to Mugello for the sixth time since the inaugural edition in 2014. For the first time the race will be held in the autumn, as the previous editions all took place in March. It will be the final round of both the 24H Series Europe and 24H Series Continents, with many class and overall championship titles at stake in this ultimate round of the 2020 season. A total of 15 entries are already confirmed.
