Iberian Supercars arrive in Barcelona with a new race format




The Iberian Supercars Endurance will be back in action on September 9th and 10th at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya with a new 2-hour format race as part of the iconic Hankook 24 Hours of Barcelona.

For the first time in the history of this series, drivers and teams will face a new and exciting challenge: a two hours race during the 24 Hours Hankook of Barcelona race. It will be an excellent opportunity to measure "forces" with the usual competitors of the series organized by Creventic.

The race in Catalunya will be the first in the Iberian Supercars with compulsory pit stops and refuelling, which will be new for most of the drivers that will travel to the 4.675km track. Likewise, the drivers will have additional difficulties in this race, as they will have to deal with the traffic of over 50 cars on track, so typical of these multi-class endurance races, encountering cars that are clearly faster and others that are obviously slower.

It should be remembered that Race Ready, the promoter of Iberian Supercars, has defined for 2022 a new competitive structure for the most successful combination of the GT4 and TCR categories on the Iberian Peninsula, by providing more track time throughout the practice and qualifying sessions and also in the races. And the four-event calendar has been structured to visit iconic circuits in Spain and Portugal, such as Circuit del Jarama, Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, Autódromo Internacional do Algarve and Circuito do Estoril.

The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya becomes part of the trajectory of a series that has been consolidating its prestige and competitiveness, bringing together today, within the Iberian Peninsula, a prestigious range of teams and drivers from the GT4, GTC and TCR classes. The set of conditions, at the regulatory level, among which stands out the introduction of an international BoP (Balance of Performance), implemented by Race Ready have revealed themselves, from the first hour, determinant not only to give credibility to the competition, but also to guarantee a grid made up of "dream" cars.
