The main feature of the upcoming REC season will be the addition to the CN sports prototype class. If in the previous two years only the G-Drive Racing crew on the Ligier JS 53 (called G01) was forced to compete for victory in the overall marathon classification among pilots in powerful GT3 cars, now several more teams have acquired such equipment. Among them are Aimol Racing, Balchug Racing, Magnum Racing, RCS – Race Cars & Skills and Zub&Ko.

Other new products of the season will be the Radical SR3 sports prototype from the Race Cars & Skills team, the Ferrari 488 Challenge from Spora GT and the Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR from the Racing Academy team. The preparation of the latter was carried out by the well-known Manthey Racing, the record-breaking team of the famous 24-hour Nürburgring marathon. Tickets for the first stage of the REC are on sale now.
