CreventicEdit

Dutch agency Creventic is the organiser and promoter of the series. Their goals are to organise races with "low costs, a convivial atmosphere with teams and drivers from all over the world and fair competition on the track." In co-operation with the Dutch National Racing Team (DNRT) – one of the biggest motorsport organisations of the Benelux – they organised the inaugural Dubai 24 Hour in 2006.[2]
2008 was the first year Creventic organised another race besides the 24H Dubai: the 12H Hungary, making it the first season with more than one race and the official first season of the 24H Series. 2015 marked the first season with official FIA International Series’ status, which meant that drivers and teams would be eligible to battle for championship titles and points.[1] Creventic is also the organiser of the Touring Car Endurance Series.
