It is one of the most awaited and desired events for all endurance karting addicted. It’s the 24 Hours Karting of Italy, organized by CRG. Now on its fourth edition, this year it will take place on the 5th and 6th June and once again at the prestigious Adria International Raceway.
There are many reasons that made this event unique and first of all the Centurion karts equipped with 390cc engine, which are for sure great protagonists of the event. CRG will provide all teams with brand new go-karts and will manage them on the racetrack thanks to a centralized assistance made by its own racing department, which represents a guarantee of very high skills.
Centurion karts are highly appreciated by drivers for the feeling they can offer while driving them, which is very similar to a real competition kart, but also for the quality and technology that characterizes them. In the past this has guaranteed very few interventions for what concerns their technical assistance and a photo finish arrival twice.
Another thing that has helped to make this event so popular is the huge organizational machine that CRG has set up in partnership with the Adria track. The exclusive services include the live streaming of the event, which offers every teams a worldwide visibility, but also the structure of the garages (made of masonry with an internal set-up and tv screens that make possible to follow the race live), the hospitality area and the race direction, which can count on a system of more than 20 cameras, to keep every corner under control. The hotel rooms, which are located directly on the pit lane are also very popular among the teams and represent a very useful support point for a tough race like that, as well as a great comfort a comfort that no other endurance event can offer.
The decision to organize the race in june aims at allowing all those teams coming from abroad, who have definitely liven up the first editions of the CRG 24 Hours, to travel and the organizers’ goal is to repeat the 2019 record with 42 teams attending the event. The race format was confirmed with 1 hour and 30 minutes of free practice, 10 minutes of Superpole and the start of the race at 2 PM on Saturday 5th June.
Two categories are confirmed: Silver for amateur teams and Pro for those more competitive ones. The regulation will be very free in order to allow different strategies to the teams. The only requirements will be the minimum number of driver changes (which has to be 30 for the Pros and 35 for the Silver teams) and the ban for each driver to drive for more than 7 hours during the race. The teams can be made of a minimum of 4 to a maximum of 10 drivers and all ACI and ASI licenses will be accepted (for drivers without a license it will be possible to request it directly at the racetrack).
Entries will officially open on Monday 22nd of February and will close when reaching the 44 places available.
