Creventic will hold a 24-hour race at Sebring International Raceway in 2021, the Dutch organization has confirmed, in an event that will take place on the current weekend of this year’s rescheduled Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.
Revealed in a Midweek Motorsport exclusive on Wednesday evening, the 24H Series will close out its 2021 season at the famed Florida airfield circuit on Nov. 12-14.
It is slated to be the eighth round on next year’s calendar, which is set to kick off with the Hankook 24 Hours of Dubai on Jan. 14-16.
The Hankook 24H Sebring will mark the fourth Creventic-run endurance race to be held in the U.S. following successful outings at Circuit of The Americas from 2017-19.
This year’s planned COTA event was canceled due to date complications surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
While details have yet to be announced, the 24H Series’ typical roster of GT3, GT4, TCR and other forms of GT and touring car machinery are expected to be eligible for the race.
The new Sebring enduro will take the mid-November date that had been previously used for the IMSA Michelin SportsCar Encore, which is understood to have been a three-year contract.
The postponed Twelve Hours of Sebring will take its place this year, with IMSA understood to not have any plans to continue the Encore event in the future.
