Rarely have we experienced such an eventful time as the 2020 racing season. Still, we have managed to organize four wonderful races spread over two race weekends. On both occasions we had a beautiful and large grid of competitors. With participants who behaved exemplary both on and off the track! We are very pleased with that. We are also pleased that we were able to deal with all this year’s mishaps in a correct way, both with our entrants and with the race organizers. It enabled us to refund the entry fee to all who had paid for a package deal.
Of course, the situation for 2021 is uncertain, but we have learned a lot this season: it is important to be optimistic, flexible and also stress-resistant. Which is why we are planning a full calendar for 2021. It will be an extra special year for NK HTGT, because we are celebrating the25th anniversary of our series. The usual kick-off with a festive evening and prize-giving ceremony is a no-go under the current circumstances and we will most likely be holding our annual meeting online. What we will most definitely do is race! The first half of the season we will stay relatively close to home, let’s say at most 450 km from Utrecht. Later in the year we hope to be able to offer a varied programme. In order not to let our 25th anniversary pass quietly, we are busy organizing an extra (7th) racing weekend in the sunny south for late autumn 2021, which will include a festive jubilee barbecue!
It will be business as usual in the new year, we are currently putting the NK HTGT 2021 package deal together. There will very likely be an extra reward for our trusty package deal customers, in conjunction with this race weekend…. Of course, individual entries for separate will also remain on offer. As soon as we have finalized everything – which will be within a few weeks – further information will follow. So start your winter rebuild now, and order that extra quick engine, because one thing is for sure: if there is even the slightest opportunity, we will make sure you can race in 2021!
We expect to see you all in the NKHTGT powered by Nolte Küchen 2021.
Stay healthy and keep an eye on your mailbox!
