So much happened, I could write a book about it!" This German saying has never been more apt for the Zurich ADAC 24h Race at the Nürburgring than this year. Anyone who thought that the previous 43rd editions had offered every possible or even impossible scenario was proved wrong. "I will still be telling my grandchildren about this," said not only Mercedes driver Kenneth Heyer.
Competition cars stuck in the ice on the track, snowball fights among drivers in the fox tube, lead changes on the last lap, quadruple victory for one brand, five accidents in the top 30 individual time trials, a 100-year-old female co-driver in the Falken drift show... There was really something going on in the High Eifel at the end of May 2016!
As always, this yearbook also takes a look behind the scenes. Many drivers and teams tell personally about their highlights or their bad luck. In addition to the overall standings, there are also detailed reports on the events in the individual classes. The fringe race series and the supporting programme are not neglected. As usual, the unique statistics section is not to be missed.
