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.

New record time on the Nordschleife: Mercedes-AMG ONE is fastest production vehicle

10.11.2022

The Mercedes-AMG ONE is the fastest production car on the Nürburgring's Nordschleife. With 6:35.183 minutes, racing driver Maro Engel set the new best time on the 20.8 kilometer track. Mercedes-AMG is the first manufacturer to have taken on the challenges of the Nürburgring in the "super sports car" category. The drive took place as an official record attempt. This guarantees the manufacturers a uniform standard - in each case accompanied by TÜV Rheinland as well as a notary who verifies the vehicle condition and the stopped time. > all record times and further information "That was really an unforgettable experience," explained Maro Engel after completing the record lap. "I didn't expect that we would be able to set such a lap time in these track conditions. In some crucial parts of the track, it hadn't dried completely yet and was therefore tricky." The driver therefore only set the new official record time on the last lap of the day, although he was able to set a new best time beforehand. Engel used the Formula 1™ hybrid drive technology with 782 kW (1,063 hp) of system power as well as the DRS function of the hypercar. Energy recovery during the braking phases also ensured that the high-performance battery still had enough power for 338 km/h top speed in the Döttinger Höhe section of the track. "This is real Formula 1 feeling. It's really something special to be able to drive around the Ring in this unique vehicle," Engel was pleased with the new best time of 6:35.183 minutes at the end.

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.

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.

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.
