Although their race scheduled for the cancelled Hockenheimring meeting in April turned out to be a false start, NKHTGT organisers are confident that they will be able to begin their 25th anniversary season at Zandvoort on 4-5 June with a pair of old fashioned 1-hour races. After that they intend to stick to their original schedule of five more races, including the novel night race at Barcelona on 3-4 September when they will be supporting the Hankook 24H Series. It will be “A unique occasion, with the first evening race in the history of the NKHTGT,” said series spokesman Jan-Bart Broertjes. “We will see the late summer sun set on Friday evening during a 50-minute race. On Saturday, we will have another 30-minute race. The 25 year success of the NKHTGT is thanks to our trusted competitors. They will all receive a special anniversary present: the Barcelona event is free for all participants with an NKHTGT package deal 2021!”
The 2021 NKHTGT season will feature no fewer than 31 regular participants. With restrictions being relaxed, they are expecting more entries from regular foreign guests. At the moment, individual entries are still available for all races. “If you have a pre-’66 FIA-compliant touring car, GT or GTP, you are very welcome to come and race with us,” continued Broertjes.
