24H Series News Notebook: Felbermayr KTM is not the only Mugello moment “Back to the future”

Felbermayr colors for the new KTM X-BOW GTX

The new KTM X-BOW GTX already caused a sensation at development and demonstration events in 2020, and now the first customer cars are making their first appearance.

The 24H series will see a program from a KTM in very familiar colors, while the legendary Felbermayr colors return.

Horst Felbermayr Jr. will drive and switch from the GT3 class to the newly created GTX class.

He is joined by the Austrian compatriot Eike Angermayr, who emerged from KTM’s X-BOW BATTLE series and won the ADAC GT4 Germany title in 2019, the US GT4 America winner Nicolai Elghanayan and the Norwegian Mads Siljehaug, who is already racing (and title) with Angermayr and Elghanayan: with Angermayr in the ADAC GT4 Germany, with Elghanayan in the GT4 America Series.

The quartet will perform together for the first time this weekend for the 12H Mugello.

While the new X-BOW GTX has already proven its potential several times, Horst Felbermayr is careful:

“We have not yet competed in this environment and it is the first long-distance race with the completely new car. Our priority is to get to the finish line so we can get as much data and experience as possible.

The efforts are being monitored by team boss Hans Reiter: “I am very pleased that we have a strong partner in Horst Felbermayr for selected races in the Creventic 24 H Series. The driver line-up is extremely balanced and I’m sure it has the potential to surprise. We can’t wait to get started! “

The 24H series, the future is back!

To celebrate the first European event of the 2021 season in Mugello this weekend, CREVENTIC and its craftsmen were inspired by one of the most popular film franchises of all time for the Hankook 12H MUGELLO event poster:

CREVENTIC’s homage to Back to the Future is also the first, as the Dutch organizer hopes, a series of cinematic-inspired event posters over the course of 2021, the next episode of which will be released before the Hankook 12H CIRCUIT PAUL takes place on April 22nd and 23rd instead of.

Two months after the opening of the Hankook 24H DUBAI season, the Hankook 12H MUGELLO is the seventh run since 2014.
