Total 24 Hours of Spa | The Countdown begins


Preparations are well underway ahead of this week’s Total 24 Hours of Spa, the 65th edition of the event, with a number of important changes to the entry list, live online streaming times and additional information. 

Since late last night teams have been setting up and preparing garages and awnings and tending to the cars that will do battle this weekend in the World’s biggest race dedicated exclusively to GT cars. Teams continue to work through the heat, close to 30°C today, as the Ardennes becomes a hive of activity before the cars take to the track on Thursday morning.

Dutch driver Jos Menten and Belgian driver Henk Haane will join the established duo of Marc A. Hayek, Blancpain President and CEO, and Peter Kox in the #24 Blancpain Racing Lamborghini LP560-4. The continental foursome have their sights firmly fixed on taking home class honours in the Blancpain Endurance Series’ blue-riband event on this the team’s debut in the Total 24 Hours of Spa.
