Premier international sportscar racing is set to return to the heavily truncated motorsport calendar with the Creventic 24 Hour series slated to resume its season in Portugal on June 13-14.
A provisional entry list has recorded 19 entries across its five categories, with each team mandated to carry out necessary social distancing requirements and don appropriate PPE.
The 24Hr series, which is responsible for the staging of the TCR 24 Hours of Spa, has released a statement confirming the event has been given the green light by the Circuit and the Portuguese Government to allow the race to go ahead.
Portugal’s borders are already open and have daily flights connecting the country to Spain and France.
Creventic has offered to help teams by arranging charter flights if necessary.
To date, Portugal has recorded 32,203 with over 1300 fatalities.
The 4.64km Algarve International Circuit remains the series latest calendar addition, staging its 24 Hour event every year since 2017.
This year’s race will feature a two-hour practice session on Friday, followed by qualifying before the main event kicks off from midday Saturday, June 13.
