Preparations for the CrowdStrike 24 Hours of Spa will ramp up this week as 68 cars take part in an official two-day test at the Belgian circuit.

The entry list for the test includes ten teams that are heading to Spa straight after competing in the Nürburgring 24, including podium finishers ROWE Racing and Haupt Racing Team.

N24 runner-up ROWE is bringing both of its BMW M4 GT3s that race full-time in the Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe powered by AWS Endurance Cup.

The other Nürburgring teams in action two days after their most recent race are GetSpeed Performance, Huber Motorsport, Car Collection Motorsport, Walkenhorst Motorsport, Rinaldi Racing, Dinamic GT, Manthey EMA and Rutronik Racing.

Eight hours of track action will take place on both Tuesday and Wednesday, with a three-hour session being held each morning followed by a five-hour afternoon run.

Four of the cars that appeared on the provisional 24H Spa entry list in March are not registered for the test, including the No., 54 Dinamic GT Huber Racing Porsche 911 GT3 R from the Pro category.

Haupt Racing Team’s No. 77 Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo and the No. 50 AF Corse Ferrari 296 GT3 from the Bronze Cup are also absent, as well as the No. 34 Walkenhorst BMW which is entered in Silver Cup.

However, all four teams still have other cars participating in the test.

The 24 Hours of Spa takes place on June 29-July 2.
