Following its impressive win at Mugello last month, Bohemia Energy racing with Scuderia Praha (#11) heads to another venue at which it secured victory last year, Spa-Francorchamps. Hot on the Ferrari’s heels will be Dubai winner Car Collection Motorsport (#88), which also enters its second Audi R8 LMS in the A6-Am class (#34)
 
Scuderia Praha though will not be the only Ferrari 488 GT3 in action. After its Mugello return, Wochenspiegel Team Monschau (#22) makes its second 24H SERIES outing on the bounce at Spa – a first for the German outfit – while Rinaldi Racing reduces its Mugello line-up from three entries to two (#47 and #48).   
 
Alongside Car Collection Motorsport on Audi duty will be Speed Lover (#14), which ended its first run in the new R8 LMS with gearbox issues in Mugello. On top of that, Attempto Racing (#66) returns to action after finishing 5th at the season opener in Dubai, ditto WRT (#27), which finished 2nd overall as part of its collaboration with Saudi squad, MS7. Last up is fellow Hankook 24H DUBAI alumni, and long-time Audi Sport customer, Phoenix Racing (#28), which hasn’t been seen in the 24H SERIES since winning the GT4 class in Dubai in 2018.
 
Reigning GT European Champion CP Racing (#85) headlines a strong Mercedes-AMG GT3 field in A6 at Spa, alongside fellow American outfit Winward Racing / HTP Motorsport (#25), series stalwarts IDEC SPORT RACING (#17), and former series champions Hofor-Racing (#10), which took A6-Am victory last time out in Mugello. Last up is Toksport WRT (#15), the FIA European Rally Championship contender making its 24H SERIES debut in Belgium.
 
Rounding out the A6 entries in Spa-Francorchamps are the dual Porsche 991 GT3 Rs of former Champion of the Continents Herberth Motorsport (#91 and #92), and the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 of GRT Grasser Racing Team (#63). The latter returns to the 24H SERIES fold after taking its second consecutive event pole position in Dubai in January.

Porsche Lorient Racing’s European Championship defense got off to a good start in Mugello, with the French team’s #91 and #92 Porsche 911-I Cups finishing 1-3 in Tuscany. No doubt the team will hope to improve on that and seal its first 1-2 finish in ‘991’ since last year’s Hankook 24H BARCELONA.
 
Among the key competition will be Teichmann Racing (#903), which finished an impressive 4th in-class on its series debut in Mugello, and MRS GT-Racing (#980), the German team having already collected a 2nd (Dubai) and 5th (Mugello) so far this season. After suffering mechanical problems in Dubai and a collision in Mugello, DUWO Racing (#909) will no doubt be hoping for third time lucky in Belgium. 
 
B2F compétition (#935) returns to the 991 fold for the first time since last year’s Hankook 12H IMOLA, as does Modena Motorsport (#916), which steps up to the GT division after two seasons running a SEAT/CUPRA in the 24H TCE SERIES. The category’s final entrant – PGmotorsport.NL (#992) – makes its 24H SERIES debut.
 
MARC Cars will play a key role in SPX, with both series favourite Cor Euser Racing (#717) and local boys, Vr Racing (#709) running the brand new Gen II V8 at Spa. For the former, it will be the first 24H SERIES start in the GT division, and the Dutch team’s first without the tenured BMW M3. Fresh from its first SP2-class win in Mugello, RTR Projects (#224) will be hoping to secure the double in Belgium with the KTM X-BOW.
 
Despite a troubled race, reigning GT European Champions PROsport Performance (#1) secured 2nd in-class in GT4 in Tuscany, and will continue their title defense with the brand new Aston Martin Vantage AMG GT4.

At the head of another strong TCR line-up this weekend, all eyes will be on the Autorama Motorsport by Wolf-Power Racing Volkswagen Golf GTI (#112) heading into Spa-Francorchamps as the Swiss team guns for its seasonal hat trick and its second consecutive European Championship victory. Don’t expect AC Motorsport (#188) to make it easy though. The Belgian team heads to its home race with a TCE runners-up spot already under its belt.
 
Fellow Audi runners GDL Racing (#157) makes only its second 24H TCE SERIES start with the RS3 LMS, and its first, aptly, since last year’s Hankook 12H SPA. Also representing the four rings in TCE in Belgium will be Sorg Rennsport (#151). Although this marks the team’s first run in TCR since COTA last year, the German squad already has a GT4-class podium – Dubai – to its name in 2019.
 
Holmgaard Motorsport (#102) and GSR Motorsport (#105) complete the VAG line-up with a couple of Volkswagen Golf GTIs, the former in resurgent form after a front row start in TCE and 4th place finish in Mugello, the latter back for its second shot at the Hankook 12H SPA. Fellow Lithuanian team IGORIO LANKAI (#132) enters a CUPRA TCR for its 24H SERIES debut.
 
Red Camel-Jordans.nl (#101) heads to Spa-Francorchamps with bittersweet memories, namely its devastating defeat on the line in 2017 and its TCR-class European Championship win last year. Expect the orange CUPRA TCR to be amongst the action, ditto that of Motorsport Developpement (#136). Despite a tough race in Mugello, Capricorn Racing (#104) returns to 24H TCE SERIES action with the FK7-spec Honda Civic Type-R.

Fun fact, in the opening two races of 2019, both CWS Engineering (#378) and JR Motorsport (#318) have finished 2nd in-class in SP3, Dubai for the former, Mugello for the latter. We’re guessing the fight for victory between the British-based Ginetta G55 – the class’ reigning European Champion, just FYI – and the BMW E46 M3 will be intense.
 
Having taken A3-class victory in Tuscany, Dan Agro Racing returns to European Championship action with two Peugeot RCZs (#685 and #686) for the first time this season. In hot pursuit will be the Honda Civic Type-R ‘FK8’ of 2017 24H TCE SERIES champion, Synchro Motorsport (#676) and easily the most unique sports car in the field, the Mitjet 2L of TCE debutants, VHA Motorsport (#601).
 
The final four teams set to take part in the Hankook 12H SPA will do so with BMW machinery. Dubai CUP1 winner fun-M Motorsport (#802) will compete with the new M240i Racing Cup, while Winkler Tuning (#666 – uh oh!) returns to the 24H SERIES after a 19-month hiatus with the E46 123D. Intersport Racing (#614) has been gone for even longer, the British squad returning with an M3 for its first start since the 2017 Hankook 24H DUBAI. Finally, BMW Team van der Horst (#602) brings an E90 330i to round-out A3.
