Speed 2013 Starts At Hungaroring
The SPEED EuroSeries will commence at the WTCC event at the Hungaroring 3-5 May.
The event will run over 3 days with SPEED competitors having 2 x 60-minute free practice sessions on the Friday followed by 60-minute qualifying sessions and 90-minute race on Saturday. The Sunday will see another 90-minute race take place before the main WTCC event.
“Following the decision to cancel the planned Monza event we sat down with our partners including the very enthusiastic Eurosport Events who run the WTCC events and they really want to have our sports cars running to broaden the event offering. Together we have been able to put an excellent prize fund on the table to attract the best possible grid, the details of which will be communicated next week.
We will run a slimmer calendar this year with an even more attractive overall prize package including an LMP2 test drive and two brand new Honda K20A engines for the winner overall and the class winner for earlier chassis machines. We also have the fabulous Sunoco Daytona Challenge open to SPEED competitors which were won last season by our reigning champion, Ivan Bellarosa,” says Oliver McCrudden, CEO of SPEED EuroSeries organizer World Sports Car Organisation.
Timetable, hotel partners, and information regarding garages will be issued next week (commencing 08/04/13).
