After a hiatus of a few years, V de V Sports, known for organising endurance races for historic and modern cars, has come back in force. After a successful 2023 season punctuated by the V de V 6 Hours at the Grand Prix de France Historique, the 6 Hours of Barcelona and the 17th edition of the 2 Tours d’Horloge, and encouraged by a resurgence of interest in endurance races, V de V has announced it will start the 2024 season with a new event at a track the series has not visited before. The Grade 1, 4-kilometre Circuito de Navarra in northern Spain is one of the best circuits on the Iberian Peninsula and the May 25-26 Six Hours of Navarra will run in daylight there and share the stage with a round of the ROSCAR GT Challenge.
A further 6-hour race that will run into the night at Le Castellet circuit on 5-6 July as part of a meeting that will also host the F4 Spain, Eurocup 3 and Radical Cup grids is also on the calendar, while the final V de V round will be the big one: the 24-hour 2 Tours d’Horloge on 1-3 November, also on the Paul Ricard circuit. These three races are open to GT and touring cars up to 1990, Sports-Prototypes up to 1976 and Sports 2000 up to 1986. Races are for teams of up to four drivers, and slick tyres are not allowed.
