The 24H TCE SERIES aims to create endurances races for Touring- and GT4-cars where (semi) professional drivers as well as amateur and gentleman drivers can participate.

Dutch agency, CREVENTIC, is the promoter of the 24H SERIES, 24H TCE SERIES and 24H PROTO SERIES, series of 12- and 24-hour endurance race events at fascinating circuits all over the world, aimed at amateurs and gentlemen drivers, semi-professionals and professional drivers. A wide variety of ‘tin top’ touring cars, GTs and 24H-Specials (e.g. silhouette cars) are eligible to race, from ‘hot hatchbacks’ up to proper GT3 machinery and purpose-built race cars. An established structure of classes and liberal technical regulations allow teams to compete without having to change their cars for the 24H TCE SERIES, thus helping them to save costs.

Low costs, a convivial atmosphere with teams and drivers from all over the world and fair competition on the track are the main characteristics of the 24H TCE SERIES events, allowing all teams and drivers to enjoy the fascination of motorsport together. Founded by passionate amateur racers, CREVENTIC, in co-operation with the Dutch National Racing Team, organized the inaugural 24H DUBAI in 2006, a race that has quickly become established in international motorsport. During its recent meeting in Paris, the FIA World Motorsport Council approved the 2018 calendar and once again granted full international series status for the 24H TCE SERIES powered by Hankook. Following the great success of the previous season with championship points and titles, the success of the series looks set to continue in 2018.
