The first quarter of the season in the Nürburgring Endurance Series (NLS) has been completed. After a two-month break, the 45th RCM DMV Grenzlandrennen is scheduled for next Saturday (June 25, 2022). Expected at sunny temperatures around 22 degrees anything but a lukewarm motorsport air around the legendary Nordschleife. The field of participants promises exciting duels for top positions in all classes and red-hot action. Tickets are available for a family-friendly 18 euros per person (children under 14 free). This not only gives access to the open grandstands at the Grand Prix Track and the exclusive spectator areas Brünnchen and Pflanzgarten, but also to the paddock, the pit lane and the starting grid. First of all, the focus is on the overall standings. After two races, nine drivers are in the lead with 30 points each. These are, on the one hand, the drivers Felix Schumann, Michael Paatz and Timo Hochwind from the Mathilda Racing Team LAVO Carwash in their Volkswagen Scirocco R from the VT2-FWD class. On the other hand Oskar Sandberg, Daniel Zils and Sindre Setsaas (Adrenalin Motorsport Team Alzner Automotive) in the BMW 330i from VT2-R+4WD. And last but not least Mauro Calamia, Ivan Jacoma and Kai Riemer from Cup3 with the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 CS from Team Schmickler Performance powered by Ravenol. It could hardly be closer. Immediately behind them follow cars and drivers from the classes CUP2, V4, BMW M240i, V5 and BMW M2 CS. So the calculation to make more classes possible master classes with the new points system works out and underlines that the new points scheme of the NLS is already a successful one and provides for more diversity. Three-time DTM champion René Rast drives with GiermaziakOf course, as always, the SP9 cars will be particularly in the spotlight over the course of the four-hour race. An interesting pairing will start for Scherer Sport Team Phoenix in the Audi R8 LMS GT3. Driving with Poland's Jakub "Kuba" Giermaziak is three-time DTM Champion René Rast, who celebrated his 25th DTM victory last weekend at Imola (ITA). "I really enjoy racing on the Nordschleife," said Rast. "It's a lot of fun to drive the R8 there. I haven't driven an NLS race for a long time and have never won one. Therefore, it's about time."Schnitzelalm Racing brings a touch of romance to NLS, with Carrie Schreiner forming a fast pair for the first time with her boyfriend Peter Terting in the Mercedes AMG GT3 as part of the NLS. "I am full of anticipation for the upcoming weekend. We have worked hard to put together a good package. I am convinced that I can learn a lot from Peter. He has already proven on all kinds of cars that he can be very fast. I will definitely enjoy every second, on the best race track in the world, on a GT3 car and then together with my friend. This is very special for me," says Carrie Schreiner. Janine Shoffner back in the Nürburgring Endurance SeriesIn the Pro-Am class, Janine Shoffner is making a comeback. She is back in action for Team GetSpeed with Moritz Kranz in the Mercedes-AMG GT3. Last year, the US-American was the first driver to take on the challenge of racing solo on the Nordschleife in a GT3 car. Prior to that, she won the Am class classification of SP9 in 2021 in the NLS six times in a row with a wreath and thus also the associated class winner's trophy. She also finished the season as the NLS Ladies Trophy winner. The Junior Team starts with the new BMW in SP8T Hardly had they said goodbye, they are already back on the mat. We are talking about the drivers of the BMW Junior Team. Daniel Harper, Max Hesse and Neil Verhagen are competing in the SP8T with the recently presented BMW M4 GT4 Concept. In the VLN TCR class, Scherer Sport is also causing a stir with the entry of the new Audi RS3 LMS. In addition to the former VLN Junior Christoph Breuer, the car will be driven by the "golden Leuchter" Benjamin Leuchter and Andreas Gülden. The car is supported by the new Scherer Team Project, which is made up of employees from various Scherer Group companies. Janis Waldow competes in SP10 with a new carSome people will rub their eyes in surprise when Janis Waldow climbs out of the cockpit in the pit lane. Because this time the man from Bonn is not driving a Renault Mégane RS or Alpine A110 GT4 as usual. Together with Max Lamesch and Andreas Patzelt, Waldow Performance is bringing a Mercedes-AMG GT4 into the grid. "We are starting with Mercedes as a new brand in addition to our existing program. We see this as a new challenge and want to position ourselves more broadly for the future. For us, we have identified the Mercedes GT4 as the suitable vehicle. We want to be competitive in the SP10 class. I am very much looking forward to the new project. I'm excited to see how the new project will start this weekend," says Janis Waldow. Those who can't watch the race live on site should tune in to the elaborately produced livestream on Saturday morning. The broadcast with gripping footage from the ROWE helicopter, numerous onboard cameras and the KW-SlowMo starts at 08:15 and ends with the podium ceremony at around 16:30.

Nürburgring offers varied event programme in July

21.06.2022

The Nürburgring starts the second half of the year at full throttle. In July, the wide range of motorsport awaits the spectators - with impressive race trucks, ultra-fast rallycross vehicles or the huge starting field of the Nürburgring Endurance Series. And at Rad am Ring you need muscle power and endurance instead of horsepower. A brief portrait of the event highlights in July. World RX of Germany | 30 - 31 July 2022The action on and off the tarmac at the Ring is extraordinary and spectacular. At the FIA World RX of Germany, the drivers also fight for important points in the world championship on gravel. The mode of competition for victory is particularly exciting and entertaining. Over several heats, six vehicles fight against each other for a place in the semi-finals and finals. Mutual contact is part and parcel of the event. The track is crisp, varied and just one kilometre long. On the stadium-like grandstands of the Müllenbachschleife, spectators have a view of the entire racing action from start to finish. There are also interesting ticket packages for friends and families. ADAC Truck Grand Prix | 15 - 17 July 2022 XXL motorsport, music festival, eventful paddock. The Int.

Here, people who want to become professional drivers will be brought together with companies in the industry. 6h Race Nürburgring Endurance Series | 9 July 2022 On the combination of the legendary Nordschleife and Grand Prix circuit, the ROWE 6 Hours ADAC Ruhr Cup Race of the NLS gets down to business.

Audi wins the 24h anniversary race

29.05.2022

The local heroes from Phoenix have secured the 50th edition of the ADAC TotalEnergies 24h Nürburgring, their sixth overall victory in the "Eifel Marathon" after a spectacular anniversary race. South African Kelvin van der Linde, the two Belgians Dries Vanthoor and Frederic Vervisch as well as Dutchman Robin Frijns prevailed after 24 hours in the "Green Hell" in the Audi R8 LMS evo II with a lead of 0:55.276 min. ahead of their Meuspath neighbours in the #3 Getspeed Mercedes-AMG, driven by DTM Champion Maximilian Götz, Fabian Schiller and Briton Adam Christodoulou. After two Corona years with severely limited attendance, 230,000 spectators experienced the 50th "Eifel Marathon" throughout the weekend and provided an impressive backdrop. With the sixth success, the Phoenix team around boss Ernst Moser moved a little closer again to the seven victories of record winner Manthey. "We came through the night well and earlier the engineers did a good job with the tyres. That's when we were able to get a big lead on the Mercedes. We deserved the win because we always had the right tyres on," explained Dries Vanthoor. For Kelvin van der Linde (2017) as well as for Dries Vanthoor and Frederic Vervisch (both also with Phoenix in 2019), it was the second victory each at the 24h Nürburgring, for Robin Frijns it was the premiere. "This victory is once again a great team performance," said Julius Seebach, the Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH responsible for motorsport at Audi. "Our new Audi R8 LMS evo II proved in a tremendously tough competition that it is an absolute winning car." Maximilian Götz from the second-placed Getspeed trio said: "Actually, everything went according to plan. But you have to say that the Audi was really strong. In the end, you have to be satisfied after a race like this with all the capers. Second place is great. But of course we wanted to win." Rounding off Getspeed's strong showing was the sister car in #4. Maro Engel, Frenchman Jules Gounon and Spaniard Dani Juncadella also finished on the podium in third place. A total of 135 cars were on the grid. Numerous favourites stumbleAfter a spectacular start phase, which was dominated by the #99 Rowe-BMW and the #7 Konrad-Lamborghini, the favourites started to die early on. Several top teams retired due to accidents or technical defects or dropped back decisively after having led the field in the meantime. The Rowe-BMW #99 was followed by its sister car #98, the #126 octane126-Ferrari which had started from pole position, the #7 Konrad-Lamborghini, the #5 Phoenix-Audi and the #90 TF Sport-Aston Martin. The defending champion had a particularly spectacular farewell: Belgian Laurens Vanthoor in the #1 Manthey-Porsche touched the #15 Phoenix-Audi of his brother Dries at the wheel at the Döttinger Höhe of all places and spun the "Grello" into the crash barriers at around 260 km/h. Towards morning, the action slowly calmed down, until several rain showers caused tension again. Three hours before the end of the race, a duel for victory had emerged between the #15 Phoenix-Audi and the #3 Getspeed-Mercedes-AMG. The Phoenix team had the advantage of being able to react at later pit stops and, with Kelvin van der Linde at the wheel and cut slick tyres on a partly wet track, used this to gain a reassuring lead for the final hour of the race. Anniversary of the 24h Nürburgring was celebrated extensivelyThe weekend surrounding the 50th edition of the tradition-steeped race was all about the big anniversary. There was a reunion with numerous former 24h overall winners. Almost 40 former winners from the period between 1970 and 2021 accepted the invitation of the organising ADAC Nordrhein. Naturally, they were much sought-after for autographs and as contemporary witnesses. With Timo Bernhard and Marcel Tiemann, two of the most successful drivers in the history of the 24h were also there, each of whom had five victories at the Ring. "I hadn't seen Marcel for ten years and was very happy to meet him here now. But our successes have welded us together and the bond has always remained," said Bernhard: "I've learned so much here and I'm very humbled to have won this race five times." For Tiemann, who had to end his career in 2010 after a serious accident, the first return to the 24h Nürburgring after twelve years was also emotional. "I saw a lot of people from the team again and also Olaf Manthey, plus some fans I still knew from the past," said Tiemann, who had celebrated four of his five victories together with Bernhard in the Manthey Porsche. There were also encounters with the heroes of yesteryear at the large exhibition of former participant vehicles on the ring°boulevard, which was also adorned by a "Walk of Fame" with large-format photos of the 24h races since 1970. The extensive visitor programme also offered countless other attractions, some of which left visitors spoilt for choice. One of the special "birthday presents" was a genuine world record: live TV partner NITRO broadcast the events at the Nürburgring from the preliminary coverage on Saturday until after the chequered flag fell on Sunday in a 27-hour continuous programme, thus setting a world record for the longest TV broadcast of a live sporting event. Dates for 2023 already fixedAfter the round anniversary, the organisers drew a positive conclusion. "The great crowd and the exciting sport on the track made this event a really worthy anniversary," Race Director Walter Hornung summed up. "This gives us a lot of momentum to look ahead and start into an exciting future." The course for this has already been set, as Nürburgring 1927 GmbH & Co. KG and the organising ADAC Nordrhein have already agreed on the dates for the coming years. The continuation of the cooperation with title sponsor TotalEnergies for the coming year is also already fixed. "We are pleased to be able to give all those involved, from the teams and drivers to our many helpers and the fans, planning security in this way," says Walter Hornung. Next year, the ADAC TotalEnergies 24h Nürburgring will be held from 18 to 21 May 2023. The prologue will be held again at the ADAC 24h Nürburgring Qualifiers from 21 to 23 April 2023.

230,000 fans at the 24h race - Rock am Ring ahead

29.05.2022

It was the emotional return of the fans: 230,000 visitors celebrated a huge motorsport party at the ADAC TotalEnergies 24h Nürburgring. The organisers, police and Nürburgring operating company look back with satisfaction on a successful weekend - with a great atmosphere and no incidents worth mentioning. At the same time, the 24-hour race was a strong start to the Nürburgring event summer. The next big event is already in the starting blocks: Already next weekend 90,000 festival fans will come to the Nürburgring - then for Rock am Ring (3-5 June). "I had goose bumps. Full grandstands and a great atmosphere around the track. You work all year for moments like that. That's what drives us as a race track and event location," the Managing Director of the Nürburgring Betreibergesellschaft, Christian Stephani, said enthusiastically after the weekend. "You could really feel this atmosphere everywhere. From the campsite at the Nordschleife to the lounges." This emotion is also shared by the sporting director of the organiser ADAC Nordrhein, Mirco Hansen: "The fans provide the emotional setting for our unique race. The pictures of the grid, the full grandstands and the fans around the Nordschleife - that was sensational. That has inspired everyone. The drivers and teams also confirm that." The Mayen police department also looks back on the past weekend with satisfaction. "The first official major event in two years went absolutely satisfactorily from a police point of view," explains press spokesman Nils Christ. "Apart from minor traffic disruptions, there were no noteworthy disturbances. We were on duty with strong forces and recorded only a few low-level offences despite the high number of visitors." For the police there is now only a short breather. The officers will be back on duty in time for Rock am Ring. The same goes for the team of the Nürburgring operating company. Managing director Ingo Böder, who together with Stephani is responsible for the fate of the race track, speaks of an organisational and operational tour de force: "I am proud of the whole team. While half of them were working on the 24h race, the others were already preparing Rock am Ring. On two weekends in a row, we have almost a big city as our guest. We can only manage this task with commitment and many years of event experience." From Friday, 3 June, 90,000 festival visitors are expected at the Nürburgring. The focus will then be on international top bands like Green Day, Volbeat or Muse. Together with the fans, they will continue to write the history of the Nürburgring Event Summer.
