At the legendary 24-hour race: World premiere for Nürburgring mascot "Legend"


The Nürburgring is getting a mascot and this one will celebrate a real world premiere at the 24h race. In future, the fox named "Legend" will greet the big and small fans in the Green Hell. Dressed in a racing suit and equipped with a cheeky cap, he will be at the start of the ADAC TotalEnergies 24h Nürburgring for the first time. Legend will then be available for souvenir photos at various locations around the Nürburgring destination and will even hand out his own autograph cards. And for the little fans, there will also be their own fan articles with the new mascot, who has what it takes to become a real crowd favourite.

Having grown up in the Fuchsröhre, the track section of the famous Nordschleife, Legend has his home in the Eifel forests along the history-steeped asphalt. And of course, the new Nürburgring mascot got his enthusiasm for thrilling motorsport here at an early age. Legendary races with the big names of motorsport such as Lauda, Schumacher, Vettel or Verstappen - Legend has experienced all this at first hand. Equipped with a sleek racing suit, the nimble fox is always ready to take the wheel himself. No matter whether it's an official race or a Nürburgring formula training session. And - just like a real racing driver - his name is also clearly visible on the suit's waist belt.

Legend carries the fascination of the versatile event location firmly in its heart. This is also why the new claim of the race track is emblazoned on the peak of his cap: "we make your heart race".

Now the new mascot is looking forward to meeting the fans of the major events and will also appear again and again on other occasions at various locations of the destination Nürburgring. The Nürburgring will communicate where Legend can be met and when via its social media channels and website. 

In addition to souvenir photos and autograph cards, there are other souvenirs for the younger visitors in the ring°fanshop. T-shirts, beanies or key rings with Legend appeal to even the smallest Nürburgring fans. Legend is ready and will be at full throttle from 18 May, the Thursday of the 24h race.
