80 teams, 180 race cars, 800 drivers, 220,000 fans live in the action, these are just a few figures to describe the feeling of the "24 Hours of Nürburgring Nordschleife", but you can only really understand it if you are there live when it's "Gentlemen, please start your engines".
Every year, the 24-hour race on the approximately 25-kilometre-long track breaks records, both on and off the asphalt. A spectacular event of the highest class, with a supporting programme that not only makes the hearts of motorsport fans beat faster. In addition to the numerous fringe races and the Drift GP, the Wednesday Parade and the Adenauer Racing Day are at the top of the fans' popularity list. You really can't get any closer to their idols.
The focus is, of course, the 24-hour race, traditionally started, Saturday at 3 p.m., if Mother Nature is kind to the organisers. The drivers themselves call it the toughest and at the same time the most beautiful race of the year. "The atmosphere of the Nordschleife, the fans at the track, it is an indescribably beautiful feeling to drive here," said Timo Bernhard last year.
All the emotions, drama, excitement, joy and the parties of the fans at the side of the track, which are as much a part of this race as the race cars themselves, are captured by our team of professional and internationally experienced motorsport photographers and captured on 176 pages of pure motorsport to give everyone the opportunity to review the entire event again and again.
