32nd edition of 24 Hours of Zolder returns to its roots

ZOLDER. The 32nd edition of the 24 Hours of Zolder is fully returning to its competition roots. During the mid-eighties this former classic Belgian endurance race once again saw the light of day and for years everyone and everything was welcome, touring cars, silhouettes and GTs. Last year, following a few seasons during which only GTs appeared at the start, an initial step back in to the open formula was made and in 2010 the 24 Hours of Zolder will be back to its 'good old' tradition. "An open formula with simple regulations, this is something we are going for", Hans van de Ven of Speedworld Promotion explained. "Everyone can and may race and on the sidelines we want to create an incredible festival atmosphere, a real Flemish Kermis. On Saturday and Sunday 21st and 22nd August I want to see loads of happy people, both on and next to the track!"

The regulations

A powerful GT, a fast silhouette, economical touring cars or exclusive GT4s... a colourful mix of racing cars and more specifically a well-filled grid, these are the promoters' ambitions for the 32nd edition of the 24 Hours of Zolder 2010 on 21st and 22nd August. "To achieve this we have kept the regulations pretty simple, without Balance of Performance, too many interventions and adaptations or drastic elements, everyone, with the exception of the modern GT1s is welcome to appear at the start of our event"
