2021 #Hankook – 24H PORTIMAO moves one week back to 16-17-18 July

CREVENTIC and management at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve in Portugal have mutually agreed to move the 2021 Hankook 24H PORTIMAO back by one week to 16-17-18 July.

The Hankook 24H PORTIMAO, a regular fixture on the 24H SERIES powered by Hankook calendar since 2017, was originally set to take place on 9-10-11 July. Now, to avoid potential clashes with other motorsport events in Europe and thus make registration easier for aspiring competitors, the Hankook 24H PORTIMAO will now be held one week later at the same venue on 16-17-18 July.

This rescheduled date does not affect the event’s place on the calendar. The 2021 Hankook 24H PORTIMAO will remain the sixth 24H SERIES event of the year after Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Mugello, Spa-Francorchamps and Hockenheim, and remains one of eight rounds on the calendar that count towards both overall and in-class championships in the 24H SERIES in 2021. Likewise, the 24-hour duration remains similarly unaffected.

The updated 2021 24H SERIES calendar now reads as follows:
