Belgian Autumn Races -The VW Fun Cup, the Hundred Series by BGDC, the 2CV and the C1 Racing Cup are pulling together!

29.05.2020: In these times of coronavirus, there is still room for solidarity and collaboration. In these unprecedented conditions for Belgian motorsport, the organisers of the VW Fun Cup powered by Hankook, the Hundred Series by BGDC, the 2CV Racing Cup and the C1 R


In these times of coronavirus, there is still room for solidarity and collaboration. In these unprecedented conditions for Belgian motorsport, the organisers of the VW Fun Cup powered by Hankook, the Hundred Series by BGDC, the 2CV Racing Cup and the C1 Racing Cup have taken the initiative to organise a joint competition on Thursday 29, Friday 30 and Saturday 31 October at the Spa-Francorchamps Circuit.



An unexpected way for these four national competitions to compete in long-distance races on the most beautiful circuit in the world.
 


The advent of Covid-19 has hit the calendars of the various motorsport players hard. When it became apparent that the Spa-Francorchamps Circuit's agenda no longer had any dates available to match the calendar of several major events, solidarity between Belgian organisers took over.



An agreement was reached between the VW Fun Cup powered by Hankook, the Hundred Series by BGDC, the 2CV Racing Cup and the C1 Racing Cup, covering Thursday 29, Friday 30 and Saturday 31 October, which are now the dates of the Belgian Autumn Races.
 



Endurance racing and a unique format

 


On Friday, the VW Fun Cup will open the proceedings. For Kronos Events, organizer and promoter of this nice championship, the sanitary crisis has offered no other choice than to postpone the Hankook 25 Hours VW Fun Cup to 2021. There's nothing to stop creativity, however, with the result that the spectacular Racing Beetles will compete for 12 hours and... 30 minutes, exactly half the race time of the 25 Hours.
 


The competitors of the 2CV Racing Cup and the C1 Racing Cup will then race on Saturday, which is to be interpreted literally: shortly after midnight, the light will turn green, and 14 hours later the winners will be announced! A unique format, and above all the prospect of seeing the superb peloton of 2CVs and C1s begin the first ascent of the Raidillon in the dark...
 


The Hundred Series by BGDC, which was originally scheduled to take place as part of both the Hankook 25 Hours VW Fun Cup and the 24H2CV, will close the proceedings on Saturday afternoon. On the programme is not a 200 minute race, as initially planned, but a longer confrontation of 300 minutes (or 5 hours) during which the competitors will be able to give their maximum!
 


Fans of Belgian motor sport and endurance racing have received the message: they still have to highlight the dates of 29, 30 and 31 October, i.e. the Belgian Autumn Races, in their diaries!




Patrick Van Billoen, Hundred Series by BGDC



"I find it very satisfying that our three structures have been able to sit around the table and find a solution. Our competitors are used to racing for 100 or 200 minutes at Francorchamps, but this time the format is even longer! It's been a long time since we last ran a 300-minute endurance race on this track. Our teams are endurance lovers, and this news will not fail to delight them! » 
 



Marc Van Dalen, Kronos Events



"Unity is strength: this is our country's slogan, and once again it is confirmed. In these exceptional circumstances, we had the excellent idea of working together to reach a collaborative agreement.



The Covid-19 pandemic has in fact brought us together, allowing four Belgian motorsport championships to evolve on the Spa-Francorchamps Circuit. As far as the VW Fun Cup powered by Hankook is concerned, I am particularly pleased that we have been able to set up such a programme. »




Robert Van Gysegem, 2CV Racing Teams



"It soon became clear that in this very special year, amateur motorsport would also suffer. When we took note of the logically reduced availability on the calendar in the second half of the season, it seemed more interesting to us to let everyone benefit from it than to try to go it alone.



From this exchange of points of view was born the idea of creating this meeting allowing four championships to play the novelty card on the Spa-Francorchamps circuit. I'm also delighted that we can offer our 2CV and C1 teams the opportunity to compete in a unique event on the most beautiful circuit in the world. An unprecedented endurance race, which will start shortly after midnight. And I don't think anyone will forget that! »
