We had some great conversations here."  Thomas Gebauer, Head of Depot Branch West SANI"The job fair came just in time for us, because we want to further strengthen our location at the Nürburgring in terms of personnel.

This is a great location for this fair and there are really many exciting employers here besides us. The selection of exhibitors is very good and the number of visitors just shows how important this offer is for the region." Thurid Wagenknecht, Programme Manager Riedel Communications"This job fair here at the Nürburgring is really beautifully designed and offers a very personal environment - so everything you need for a lively exchange with visitors. We really had a lot of young visitors and students - also accompanied by parents - which impressed us a lot. Many were surprised by our performance portfolio, because here in the region the perception of Riedel Communications is very much shaped by radio technology and motor sports." Irina Wörner, Team Leader Persona Service Neuwied"We are always looking for skilled workers and since we are such a big company, actually everyone can find a job with us. Our area also extends to the Nürburgring and we want to attract applicants and employees here, especially from this region. That's why we came all the way from Neuwied. The talks were really great and we will definitely be happy to come back at the next job fair at the Nürburgring." Guido Fiedler, Member of the Management Board Köllemann GmbH"We essentially produce machines for materials handling and process engineering and export 80 per cent of these all over the world. Since our company is based in Adenau, we also like to recruit our employees in the region. Many highly qualified people presented themselves here at the job fair, including possible trainees.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS laps the Ring in 6:49.328 minutes

13.10.2022

The new Porsche 911 GT3 RS lapped the Nordschleife in 6:49.328 minutes - 10.6 seconds faster than the current 911 GT3. At the wheel was Porsche brand ambassador Jörg Bergmeister, who was intensively involved in the development of the new top model of the 911 series. The lap time was achieved in the presence of a notary. The new 911 GT3 RS is uncompromisingly designed for maximum performance. In doing so, the 386 kW (525 hp) road-legal high-performance sports car consistently uses technologies and principles from motorsport. In addition to the high-revving naturally aspirated engine with racing genes and intelligent lightweight construction, it is above all the cooling and aerodynamic concept that proves the direct kinship with its motorsport brethren. At 285 km/h, the 911 GT3 RS achieves a total downforce of 860 kilograms - three times as much as a 911 GT3. > Rekord drives at the Nürburgring "The 911 GT3 RS was able to prove today what you can already see at first glance - its absolute competence on the racetrack," says Andreas Preuninger, Model Series Manager GT vehicles. "Considering the less than ideal conditions with a strong headwind on the long Döttinger Höhe straight and excessively cool asphalt temperatures, we are satisfied with the time. The 911 GT3 RS sets new standards in the areas of aerodynamics and chassis. There has never been so much motorsport in a road car." The 911 GT3 RS with Weissach package was equipped with the optionally available Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 R tyres in the dimensions 275/35 R 20 at the front and 335/30 R21 at the rear. The new 911 GT3 RS completed the previously used shortened lap in 6:44.848 minutes."Due to the strong, sometimes gusty wind, we lost a little downforce. Nevertheless, I'm very happy with the lap," says Jörg Bergmeister. "Especially in the fast sections, the 911 GT3 RS is in a league of its own. Here the car is on a level that you otherwise only know from high-class race cars. The car also sets new standards in braking. This makes fast laps on the Nordschleife simply a lot of fun." Frank Moser, Head of the 911 and 718 series, followed the fast lap from the pit wall: "I am incredibly proud of what the entire team has achieved in the development and testing of the new 911 GT3 RS. Jörg Bergmeister nailed it today and fully exploited the car's potential in the not so easy conditions at the Ring today. The 911 is always good for a surprise and proves that the rear-engined concept is still excellent for high-performance sports cars."

Investment in electric mobility at the Nürburgring

27.09.2022

The Nürburgring continues to invest in its infrastructure and in the future of the automobile. In cooperation with "TotalEnergies", 18 new charging points for electric vehicles have been installed at the world-famous event location. The charging facilities are now available to visitors to the Nürburgring. The importance of electric mobility and its expansion have played a major role at the Nürburgring since 2009. With the construction of the multifunctional event location, the first e-charging points were also installed. In recent years, various charging options have been added - including six Tesla Superchargers. With 18 more AC charging points, the Nürburgring has consistently pushed ahead with the expansion of its own future-oriented infrastructure, its sustainability and the service for owners of electric vehicles. The charging facilities are available to all Nürburgring visitors as well as guests of the accommodation and holiday destinations operated by Lindner - Nürburgring Ferienpark, Nürburgring Motorsport Hotel and Nürburgring Congress Hotel. Further charging stations at the unique event location are already being planned. Charging is powered by 100% green electricity - the green energy makes charging particularly sustainable. Electric drives in development, at record runs and for the first time at the FIA World ChampionshipElectric drives are also playing an increasingly important role in development and motorsport at the Nürburgring. This year's event will be the FIA World RX of Germany for the first time (12.11. - 13.11.2022). This will be the first all-electric event at the Ring and will thrill the spectators on a track of gravel and asphalt. The development of electric vehicles from a wide range of manufacturers takes place at the Nürburgring at the so-called Industry Pool. Within this framework, companies from the automotive industry spend a total of 16 weeks a year on product developments as well as test and development drives on the legendary Nordschleife. The performance of the cars can be put to the test during the official Nürburgring record drives. Here, too, impressive records have already been set with the alternative e-drives. In the prototype category, the VW ID.R circled the Nordschleife in 6:05.336 minutes in 2019. In the electric production vehicles, the Porsche Taycan Turbo S holds the current record with 7:33.35 minutes. Electric karts for big and small racers The ring°kartbahn has had purely electric karts since 2014, which have been repeatedly updated to the latest state of development with the latest models. Around 30 karts for adults and children are in use at the Nürburgring. A sound box provides the powerful racers with an additional portion of racing feeling. A roll bar, seat belt system and brake lights make the ride on the 400-metre-long indoor track a fast-paced and safe experience. The ride here is possible for big and small racers - from the age of 8 and a height of 1.20 metres, anyone can take the wheel here.

Vehicles and ultrasound equipment for DRK rescue service Nürburgring

13.09.2022

With two new emergency vehicles and a mobile ultrasound device, the equipment of the DRK rescue service Nürburgring has been expanded. With a new all-terrain and wadeable Unimog as well as a retrofitted command vehicle, the Medical Service Nürburgring of the DRK-Kreisverband Ahrweiler e.V. can support operations at events and in the region. The new ultrasound device enables the team to make diagnoses as quickly as possible. The new purchases were supported, among other things, by the financial commitment of the Nürburgring operating company. Nürburg. The staff of the DRK Medical Service take care of the needs of many patients, large and small. Whether it's injuries to event visitors, injuries to racing drivers or various emergency missions in the region: the team of the modern racetrack hospital is on duty all year round and even accompanies rescue helicopter missions in the entire district and beyond. With the acquisition of a mobile ultrasound device, the German Red Cross at the Nürburgring is now doubly equipped for quick diagnoses of people who have had accidents. With the support of Nürburgring 1927 GmbH & Co. KG, a second mobile ultrasound device was purchased for the emergency ambulance. In case of doubt, this can save lives by providing the fastest possible sonography with display on the tablet screen. The evaluation at the scene of the emergency provides valuable information for the choice of a possible target hospital. In addition to its operations on and off the racetracks, the DRK-Nürburgring is also committed to providing the best possible care for the citizens of the Adenau region with the new equipment and, if necessary, supports the colleagues of the DRK rescue station in Adenau when they are not available. Powerful vehicles for operations at major events and in the regionIn addition to the ultrasound device, the DRK rescue service at the Nürburgring now also has a modified Unimog that is capable of off-road use and wading. This can be used in the adjacent off-road park of the Nürburgring as well as in the numerous camping areas during major events. If necessary, the Unimog can also be called upon district-wide to provide support in the event of major disasters. Talks are underway with the district administration on this. The extended equipment of the vehicle includes a respirator, ECG, suction and emergency backpack, scoop stretcher and vacuum mattress. If necessary, the equipment can be supplemented by a sling stretcher. The new command vehicle is also in use at major events at the Nürburgring. Like the Unimog, it is also available for regional operations in the event of major incidents or a mass casualty incident. The vehicle is a gift from the Ober-Ramstadt fire brigade as part of the flood relief. A delegation from Ober-Ramstadt brought the vehicle to the district during the flood disaster to hand it over to the DRK rescue service Nürburgring. The vehicle was refitted with state-of-the-art technology by the team itself. In addition, the company Stefan Manheller from Meuspath assisted with the repainting, the company Landstorfer in Bonn with the sticking in the DRK ring design and Alexander Krahe from the district fire brigade association Ahrweiler, who established the contact to Ober-Ramstadt. All in all, the DRK-Nürburgring was able to gain important building blocks in the medical care at and around the Nürburgring with the new acquisitions.

Photovoltaic system implemented in partnership with Wi SOLAR

01.09.2022

A new photovoltaic system has been installed on the roof of the motorsport experience museum ring°werk at the Nürburgring. With this investment, the versatile motorsport and event location is further developing its sustainability. The system was implemented in partnership with the internationally successful service provider Wi SOLAR from Kaisersesch. The company from the region is now also the name sponsor of the ring°kartbahn. The photovoltaic system on the roof of the ring°werk directly next to the Grand Prix circuit is 3,500m² in size. The Nürburgring uses the annual yield of 500,000 kWh entirely for its own energy supply and thus covers around 10% of its annual electricity requirements. The CO2 emissions avoided by the newly installed plant amount to 238,973 kg per year. "The Nürburgring already obtains 100% green electricity, now we have taken the next step," explains the Managing Director of Nürburgring 1927 GmbH & Co. KG, Christian Stephani. "For us, the investment in solar energy is a further development of our sustainability. In addition to our role as an economic driver and as a location for the development of mobility, we also attach importance to making further progress in environmental and climate protection." Name sponsoring: ring°kartbahn powered bei Wi SOLARThe construction of the new photovoltaic system was implemented with the company Wi SOLAR. The focus of the service provider is the professional use of solar energy in the sectors of construction, trade, commerce, industry and logistics. In addition, a further partnership was concluded with Wi SOLAR, which includes, among other things, a name sponsorship of the ring°kartbahn. This will now be called "powered by Wi SOLAR". To ensure that the performance of the new photovoltaic system is also clearly visible to all visitors, an information board with the current values of energy generation through solar energy is to be installed in the kart track. Thematically, ring°kartbahn, the photovoltaic system and Wi SOLAR go well together, because here the visitors exclusively go chasing for fastest times with the electric karts from RIMO.

14.08.2022

The AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix will remain an integral part of the Nürburgring event calendar in the long term. The operators of the race track and the organisers of the classic event agreed at an early stage to continue their cooperation until 2028. The largest classic car racing event in continental Europe will continue to take place in mid-August in the future. The extension of the event contract was already decided one year before the original contract expires in 2023 and thus underlines the good cooperation. Next year, the 50th AvD-Oldtimer-Grand-Prix will celebrate a "round birthday" and the conclusion of the contract guarantees that this edition will be followed by several more. "We are very pleased to ensure continuity - not only for our spectators in the grandstands, but above all to remain an important fixed point in the annual calendar for teams and drivers. The agreement with our partners at the Nürburgring also gives us security for all subsequent planning," says Wolfgang Schulz as co-managing director of the organisers' association.  The signing of the contract is also an important signal for the operators of the race track: "The AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix represents the entire motorsport history of our race track," explains the Managing Director of Nürburgring 1927 GmbH & Co. KG, Ingo Böder. "The vehicles that compete here have fascinated visitors to the 'Green Hell' for decades and bring the great moments to life. That's why we're delighted to be able to experience this highlight at the Nürburgring for the long term."
