H&R is involved as an advertising partner at the Nürburgring. The logo of the suspension manufacturer can be seen in a prominent place on the legendary race track: on the pit wall. Thousands of fans already had the best view of the advertising partnership at the ADAC TotalEnergies 24h Nürburgring - from the packed main grandstands.

The contract with H&R for the advertising presence initially runs for two years until 2024. The partnership between H&R and the Nürburgring is the consistent continuation of the communication strategy of the successful company from Lennestadt. Motorsport is an integral part of the H&R DNA. Thus, in addition to long-standing partnerships with the Nürburgring Endurance Series (since 2003) and the 24h Race (since 2018), the commitment at the race track itself now follows. "The development of our suspension components is based on the knowledge we gain when using our products on the racetrack - especially the Nürburgring. It is the cradle of motorsport," says Managing Director Heinz Remmen, himself a former overall winner of the NLS in 2001. Yannick C. Remmen, also managing director of the family-owned company adds: "Furthermore, we appreciate the relationship of trust, the short decision-making processes as well as the customer-oriented thinking of the people in charge at the Nürburgring. That's why we are committed here." Christian Stephani, Managing Director of Nürburgring 1927 GmbH & Co. KG is also pleased about the new partnership.

Directly opposite the BMW M Power main grandstand, it is clearly visible to all visitors along the start and finish straight and also to countless viewers at the TV sets. When selecting advertising partners, we focus on industry diversity and I am pleased that H&R has also found its place here at our race track." In addition, the suspension manufacturer is now also a partner in the Nürburgring Business Club. This is where companies of all sizes and from all sectors meet.

Nürburgring and Mercedes-AMG extend partnership until 2026

24.05.2023

The performance and sports car brand of Mercedes-Benz "Mercedes-AMG" will remain a partner of the Nürburgring until 2026. A corresponding contract has been signed by the managing directors of Nürburgring 1927 GmbH & Co. KG and Mercedes-AMG GmbH have signed a contract to this effect. AMG thus secures extensive advertising and naming rights to the legendary race track. In addition, the Affalterbach-based company will make its sports cars available for various driver training courses and offers at the Nürburgring. The contract, which runs until 2026, also concludes a total of 10 years of cooperation between the two brands.  AMG has been an active partner of the Nürburgring since 2017. One of the flagships of the long-standing collaboration is the "Beast of the Green Hell" - the Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO, which was also developed on the Nordschleife and with which the co-pilot rides through the Green Hell are also offered. "Our partner Mercedes-AMG is a perfect fit for the Nürburgring in terms of brand culture and communication. Both brands stand for the highest standards and a strong emotional bond with fans, customers and partners," explains Christian Stephani, Managing Director of Nürburgring 1927 GmbH & Co. KG and adds: "The visual presence of the partnership is more than just an advertising space. It is firmly part of the appearance of our race track." Thus, the three famous letters will continue to show themselves to visitors at various points on the race track. At the Grand Prix circuit, the performance brand continues to give its name to the AMG Arena section of the track and the AMG Grandstand. In addition, the AMG VIP Lounge above the pit lane offers the perfect view of the action. The AMG Showroom continues to await all visitors to the ring°boulevard directly adjacent to the start and finish straight. Advertising space on famous Caracciola carousel - Art Car to honor the partnershipThe advertising space on the world's most famous section of the legendary Nordschleife also remains a highly visible part of the cooperation: a 20-meter-long billboard along the Caracciola Carousel. The Mercedes-AMG GT3 Art Car also drove through the unique steep curve, which sends the vehicles over rough concrete slabs on the inside, during the weekend of the ADAC TotalEnergies 24h Nürburgring. Designed by Andrew Mytro, the race car in its green livery offered a tribute to the Nürburgring Nordschleife in the starting field and also expressed the "rootedness" with the Nürburgring as a cooperation partner. "The Nürburgring and Mercedes-AMG have always been very closely connected. Whether on the Grand Prix circuit or the Nordschleife, the races at the Nürburgring are always the highlights of the season for us as AMG. In addition, the demands on the Nordschleife are also part of the fixed development program for our road cars. As brands, both undoubtedly stand for the extraordinary, for emotionality, for high demands as well as for close motorsport at the highest level. Thus, a close cooperation is only a logical step for us and I am very pleased that we continue this long-standing cooperation with the same partnership understanding," explains Michael Schiebe, Chairman of the Management Board of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. Performance vehicles for Nürburgring driving training and offersIn addition to advertising space and the use of racing vehicles at the Nürburgring, AMG will also remain the performance partner for the driving offers of the Nürburgring Driving Academy with various vehicles. The "Beast of the Green Hell," which was also developed on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, continues to be the official co-pilot vehicle. In the co-driver's seat of the Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO, co-drivers from the age of 18 can be driven around the legendary Nordschleife by a professional driver. In the process, vehicle and driver alike demonstrate how they handle the unique conditions of the Green Hell the most. On a lap of 21 kilometers, there are 73 curves, several uphill and downhill sections and a difference in altitude of 300 meters. The Driving Academy is also supported by four Mercedes-AMG A 45 S instructor vehicles. These are used, for example, in sports driver training courses or as part of courses where participants can obtain racing licenses. In addition to the experiences in the "real world," the partnership can also be found in the virtual world. All advertising space and naming rights can be found in the licensed driving simulations. So the professional eSportsmen and sim racers drive on a virtual lap past the same AMG lettering, advertising spaces and through the AMG Arena as the real pros do in races or the private drivers do in tourist drives. All information about the Nürburgring and AMG can be found on the respective websites www.nuerburgring.de and www.mercedes-amg.com

A new claim for a legendary destination: nürburgring. we make your heart race.

08.03.2023

The Nürburgring is more than just a race track. Nestled in the Eifel forests and firmly rooted in the region, it has been an international place of emotion, passion and unique stories for almost 100 years. And for Nürburgring fans from all over the world, it is one thing above all: a place of solidarity and community – a kind of home. The fact that emotional moments, people and a very special feeling of longing make up the Nürburgring will be visible and tangible this season under the new claim of the destination. Because from now on, the motto at the Nürburgring is: we make your heart race.   This claim stands for the passion of the employees and the Nürburgring companies, who see themselves as pioneers of unique moments and for the diverse experiences that the players and visitors experience here. It stands for goose bumps and heart throbbing, for adrenaline and joy, for an incomparable challenge. These emotions can be triggered just as much by a visit to the Nürburgring Endurance Series or by an overnight stay right next to the race track at the Nürburgring Congress Hotel managed by Lindner. A ride in a kart, in the passenger seat of a racing car or in the simulator of the Nürburgring eSports bar also causes special palpitations – and participation in a company event with a direct view of the race track is just as special. All of this is the "Nürburgring" emotion that creates special impressions and memories for everyone involved. Beyond the on-site experience, the Nürburgring feeling is transported around the world. Through emotional scenes – for example in the live broadcast of a race from Nürburgring.tv or in the new image clip of the destination. And of course there are a variety of emotional image motifs from all events and moments at the Nürburgring via the Nürburgring communication channels. No matter where, no matter what time: everyone should have the opportunity to experience a piece of the Nürburgring and, of course, to feel for themselves what it means when it says: "nuerburgring. we make your heart race."

In addition, there will be tourist rides on the Grand Prix Track and other programme items in the paddock. Racing motorbikes from different eras will take centre stage at the Cologne circuit. On 14 May, they will show their best side on the Grand Prix Track. Particularly eye-catching are the starts of the veteran sidecar riders and the historic motor scooters. This year, for the third time, the Grand Prix circuit will be the venue of the ADAC/DMC Race Weekend (10-11 June). From "old iron" to sidecars and superbikes, everything is represented here for beginners and experienced pilots.  On foot and by bike around the RingThe fact that the Nürburgring can also be mastered on foot or by bike is impressively demonstrated by the athletes at the Hotfoot Run and at Rad am Ring. On 6 May, the famous obstacle course involves overcoming mountains of straw bales, mud pits and ice-cold pools of water. From 21 to 23 July, the cyclists take on the world's most demanding race track. The highlight of the event is the 24-hour cycle race over the combination of Grand Prix circuit and Nordschleife. But the Nürburgring is also popular with athletes beyond the event: a total of seven cycling and running events are scheduled for 2023. Here, amateur athletes can run or experience the legendary track on the various dates.  But even without a major event, the Nürburgring is always worth a visit. There is much to discover and marvel at. For example, the motorsport experience museum ring°werk, the ring°kartbahn with pure motorsport feeling, the Nürburgring eSports bar, the ring°kino with one of the largest 3D cinema screens in the region or various gastronomic highlights such as the Italian restaurant Lucia or the Bitburger Gasthaus in the ring°carré as well as the Devils Diner at the Nordschleife await the visitors.
