Races at Circuit Paul Ricard and Imola will be back on the 24H Series schedule next year while Monza will host a Creventic race for the first time with the final calendars now confirmed for both the Continents and Europe series.

Paul Ricard will host a nine-hour race on July 10, while the Hankook 12 Hours of Imola is scheduled for Oct. 9-10 as the season finale of the 24H Series Europe powered by Hankook.

The two race tracks have been reinstated on the schedule at the popular request of teams, according to a statement released by Creventic.

Paul Ricard’s event will run until 10 p.m. local time as the series’ first nine-hour race, as a result of noise restrictions at the southern French circuit.

“As usual, we have listened carefully to feedback from our various teams and drivers and we have taken the requests into account for the final version of our calendar for 2020,” says Creventic’s Helen Roukens.

24H Series Europe will include 12-hour races at Monza and Spa to open the season, ahead of the 24 Hours of Portimao, 9 Hours of Paul Ricard, 24 Hours of Barcelona and 12 Hours of Imola.

The 24-hour races at Portimao and Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya will also form part of the global 24H Series Continents schedule.

The international series gets underway in three weeks’ time with the Hankook 24 Hours of Dubai, ahead of the Portimao and Barcelona races on June 12-14 and Sept. 4-6. The 24 Hours of COTA will complete the campaign on Nov. 13-15.

The races at Dubai and Circuit of The Americas will both count towards the 24H Series Continents standings, while only each team’s best result from the two European races will be recorded.

The 12H Spa on May 1-3, meanwhile, will run as a double-header event alongside the TCR Spa 500.
