“After we won the Spa 24 Hours in 2019 and 2020 with the Porsche 911 GT3 R, expectations are obviously very high. In the past few years, teamwork has been the secret to success. This is precisely what we want to continue perfecting. We have 10 teams with 12 cars tackling the Pro, Pro-Am, Silver, and Am categories,” said Porsche 911 GT3 R Project Manager Sebastian Golz.

“Everything is possible on Belgium’s tradition-steeped racetrack. Like at the Nürburgring, the weather conditions can change completely within a very short time. So that’s why we put a lot of emphasis on supporting our customer teams with helpful information at the track. We’ll do our very best to make a hat trick at Spa possible,” Golz added.

Tomorrow, the 12 cars will get afree practice followed by a pre-qualifying round and four qualifying rounds to be concluded by a night practice.

A quick warm-up will take place on Friday before the Super Pole.

The 24-hour race will happen during the weekend. A free live stream of the classic can be viewed here.
