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.

Date change for FIA World RX of Germany – season finale in November at Nürburgring

07.07.2022

The FIA World Rallycross Championship will not be held at the Nürburgring until November, postponing the German race originally scheduled for July. By making this decision, the racing series wants to give the teams the maximum time to prepare for the new electric era of the sport. The Nürburgring will therefore host the World RX season finale from November 12-13. With not one but two World Championship races, a so-called double-header will be held in the Müllenbachschleife of the Grand Prix Track. Originally, only one WRC race was scheduled for the Nürburgring. Tickets for the event will retain their validity. pre-sales continue unabated for the new date. "Teams have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to make the switch to electric drive, but global events over the last few years have caused supply chain issues and therefore unforeseen delays in building the cars" announces World RX in its statement. "Therefore, in order to duly introduce this new generation of rallycross cars, it has been decided to give the teams two more weeks to perfect their preparations." World RX will switch entirely to electric power in the main category this year as the series moves toward a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future. The cars will be the most powerful and spectacular ever seen in the championship. They will produce 500 kW – the equivalent of 680 hp – and have an instant torque of 880 Nm, resulting in breathtaking acceleration that surpasses even Formula 1. Fans will now not be able to experience the fascination of the new vehicles until November at the Nürburgring. In return, the new date promises a gripping season finale. "We had great races last year and a title fight that remained exciting right to the end. While it's a shame that we won't be able to experience the first round of the sport's new electric era at our venue, we're happy to now host the season finale again – now with double the action on the track," says Ingo Böder, Managing Director of Nürburgring 1927 GmbH & Co. KG. "We hope that the spectators will experience a similarly close battle this year – and perhaps the new date in November will mean that there will be a bit of snow again to increase the excitement."

And the final rounds of the year really had it all. The two Swedes fought a bumper-to-bumper duel from start to finish - with the better end for the now four-time world champion Kristoffersson. He was correspondingly happy after crossing the finish line. The operators of the Nürburgring also look back with satisfaction on the premiere weekend, when the new track was used for the first time by the world's best rallycross drivers. The approximately one-kilometer-long course of gravel and asphalt had been laid out with great effort. The rallycross drivers drove against the actual direction of travel of the Nürburgring. And on Saturday morning an additional challenge awaited: freshly fallen snow and changing weather conditions.

Showdown at the Nürburgring: Four-way fight for the World Championship - Rallycross "double-header" promises thrilling finale

A real showdown now awaits on the circuit's Müllenbachschleife at the finale at the end of November (27 and 28 November).

That means for the weekend: Double points for the drivers, double action for the spectators. If you want to be there live, you can get your ticket at www.nuerburgring.de.

This is because there will be a free choice of seats on site at the Müllenbachschleife on both days of the event. This means that every visitor can watch the many qualifying races, the semi-finals and the final on different grandstands. Whether at the start, at the finish, at the joker lap or at another spot on the track - everyone can decide on site from where they want to experience the action. The entire racing action is in full view at all times, no matter which spot you choose. The entire one-kilometer track of the Müllenbachschleife can be viewed from anywhere.

Timmy Hansen arrives in the lead - chasing trio can hope for successThere will be excitement on the track for the spectators. Each day, the action of a whole weekend can be experienced twice: on Saturday and Sunday, qualifying races, semi-finals and finals are scheduled and promise motorsport action from morning to night without a break. Timmy Hansen will travel to the big decision at the Nürburgring as the world championship leader and will have to defend his lead against his pursuers Johan Kristoffersson, Kevin Hansen and Niclas Grönholm. The trio will try to make the most of their last chance for the title. One thing is already certain for the rallycross weekend at the Nürburgring: anyone who wants to stand at the top of the podium will have to work hard for this honor. Because the mode of this type of motorsport is as special as the racing itself. The drivers have to get through several heats and a final before it is clear who will emerge as the winner. To make it to the finals, the drivers have to prove their world class and keep an eye on their vehicle. Because in rallycross, mutual contact and paint damage are an integral part of the race.
