Dutch motorsport company Creventic, owners and promotors of the 24 Hour Series, have today confirmed entry fees for their new Prototype Series that will run alongside the 24H Series.

The 24H PROTO SERIES will be open to LMP3 cars, Group CN machinery and ‘special prototypes’ with a similar performance (we have no idea what this means yet, but assume it is an opening to waiver in anything ‘interesting’ that applies!).

The first event will be the 3x3H DUBAI, a triple-header of three-hour races on two days at Dubai Autodrome, preceded by two hours of free practice, one hour of qualifying and 1.5 hours of night practice. This will run as an official support event of the Hankook 24H DUBAI.

“The idea to explore the opportunities with prototypes was the result of the many requests we got from teams and drivers who wanted to run a prototype in the Hankook 24H DUBAI”, said Creventic’s Ole Dörlemann.

“We want to keep our race in Dubai for GTs and touring cars, but we decided to look for other opportunities and that led to the 3x3H DUBAI as a prototype event, plus our planned 24H PROTO SERIES for which we envisage three events in 2017.

“We always say that ‘everybody is welcome at Creventic’, and this is another example. We mainly aim at gentlemen drivers who can enjoy the performance of their prototypes in a genuine endurance racing atmosphere.”

And the real news here is the price, the entry fee for the 3x3H DUBAI is 10,000 Euros per car, including standard transport of car and equipment from Rotterdam to Dubai Autodrome and back. Fuel for the entire event is also included in the entry fee! For the gentleman driver wishing to step up to prototype racing Creventic may just have stolen the march on the rest of the field.

An application will be submitted to obtain FIA International Series status, which will be decided shortly. and a calendar for the series with three twelve-hour races in Europe will be announced in due course.
