our second home - the hardest endurance in the world.
This racetrack is a real myth: notorious and popular at the same time, and there is no cure for those who have caught the Nordschleife-fever. Every year, the Nürburgring’s 25 kilometre Nordschleife – the longest racetrack of the world – is the venue of a race which is just as unique as the circuit the teams have to cope with. A racing driver planning to lap the legendary Nordschleife for 24 hours must have some very special qualities. 73 corners – 40 right-handers and 33 left-handers – mean that you have to be completely focused all the time. Occasionally erratic track conditions, extremely changeable weather, the biggest grid for a single race worldwide and the huge crowds celebrating day and night are increasing the challenge to the max: those who enter this race must be born racers with nerves of steel.
Who wants to make it at the ‘Green Hell’ has to be a hell of a driver.
The "ADAC 24-Stunden-Rennen Nürburgring" (the event’s official name) seems to have an irresistible attraction for drivers and motor racing fans. The combination of the classic endurance race and the legendary circuit is regularly attracting some 200 teams with approximately 700 drivers and some 200,000 fans to travel to the heart of the Eifel. On the grid you can find international top drivers as well as ambitioned amateurs, but there is one thing they all have in common: the "Green Hell Endurance Fever" infection.
Since the event’s first issue back in 1970, racing legends such as Niki Lauda, Hans-Joachim Stuck and Johnny Cecotto have won the race just as German top class touring car drivers such as Klaus Ludwig, Manuel Reuter or Christian Danner.
