24h-Race Nürburgring

Taking place at the Nurburgring, which is also famous as an R&D test track for automobile and tyre makers, this 24-hour endurance race is considered by many to be the world’s toughest race. At 25km a lap, the race makes use of the Nurburgring’s full course, combining the North Course (Old Course), which features elevation differences of 300m and about 170 corners (including blind corners), and the more modern Grand Prix Course used for F1.
