ROME – Gruppo Peroni Race announces that the 30th edition of the 6 Hours of Rome has been rescheduled: the historical event has been postponed by a week and will therefore take place on the weekend of November 27-28, 2021. This year's event at Vallelunga's “Piero Taruffi” racetrack will be unprecedented, featuring numerous innovations from the ending as a night race to an important addition to the format.
Preparations are underway for the 30th edition of the 6 Hours of Rome, successfully relaunched on 13 December 2020 by Gruppo Peroni Race and made unforgettable by the hard-fought battle between Riccardo Agostini (Audi Sport Italia) and Raffaele Giammaria (Drive Test Motorsport) in the closing stages.
In addition to the date, the start time will change. The race will therefore begin at 12 pm and will end at 6pm, with the racetrack fully illuminated. On the podium, as in the 29th edition, the prizes and watches of BRM Chronographes, the official partner of the event, will be destined to the top three crews.
The schedule will be divided into three days, with Friday dedicated to free practice, Saturday to qualifying and Sunday to the endurance race. The Superpole will also be introduced on Saturday: such a revolutionary change in the format will see the 12 fastest in qualifying battle it out for pole position.
The race is open to all classes of GT cars and Pro, Pro Am and Am drivers. The crews admitted will count from 1 up to 4 drivers.
In combination with the historic endurance race there will be the season finale of the TCR DSG Europe with its exciting two-hour endurance race, the seventh and last stage of the Master Tricolore Prototipi and the final round of the Smart EQ Fortwo e-cup.
In the coming weeks further information will be released on the event, as we eagerly await the right moment to pronounce the infamous formula "Gentlemen, start your engines!"
