The legendary Nordschleife of the Nürburgring is the scene of the largest motorsport event in the world, the international ADAC Zurich Agrippina 24 hour race. This long-distance classic is not an event for a hand-picked elite of famous racing drivers. In the Hocheifel, amateur pilots with the Olympic spirit are just as much a part of the party as touring car professionals and rally aces. Well over 700 drivers from 20 countries in 200 racing cars from 29 different manufacturers make this race a synonym for tension and drama, for triumphs and tragedies. Around 150,000 fans celebrate around the 25.947-kilometer route. The green hell wants to be conquered, it demands driving skills that should not be underestimated. People and material are put to the test. The 33 left and 40 right turns have to be mastered in each lap. This book accompanies the drivers in their chase around the clock twice, describes successes and failures, reports on cars and people.
