The second round of the 24H TCE Series takes place this weekend at Silverstone, where 11 TCR teams will take place in the 24-hour race.
The quartet of Sebastiaan Bleekemolen, Rob Smith, Melvin de Groot and René Steenmetz return to defend their 2017 victory at the wheel of a SEAT León V3 with sequential gearbox run by the Team Bleekemolen.
Four other SEAT cars – all with DSG gearbox – will be fielded by the Bas Koeten Racing (two), Red Camel-Jordans.nl and LMS Racing; the latter, driven by Finland’s Antti Buri, Olli Kankas and Kari-Pekka Laaksonen was the winner of last year’s 12 Hours of Spa.
Holmgaard Motorsport from Denmark, Motorsport Developpement from France and Manchester-based JW Bird Motorsport will run Volkswagen Golf GTI cars, while two Audi RS3 LMS cars have been entered by Bonk Motorsport and Excelr8 Motorsport.
The field is completed by a brand new Hyundai i30 N sporting the colours of Team Hyundai Denmark and driven by Jan Engelbrecht, Per Poulsen, Jakob Kristensen and Søren Jönsson.
