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.

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."

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 and

Sensational atmosphere and 9-Darter at "Darts am Ring


It was the perfect start to the season at the Nürburgring. While the Nürburgring Endurance Series offered thrilling motorsport on the track and ROWE RACING took its first win of the season, 3,600 fans cheered in the evening at the "Darts am Ring Gala" in the ring°arena. The players put in strong performances on the darts stage and the fans conjured up a world championship atmosphere. One of the highlights was a 9-darter by Jonny Clayton. Even before the players entered the stage, the fans in the ring°arena were at operating temperature. The 3,600 spectators sang along to songs like "Sweet Caroline" and warmed up for the big show. Most of them were dressed up - as has become a tradition with the audience at darts events. Gabriel Clemens visibly enjoyed his home match at the Nürburgring. The German, who reached the semi-finals of the Darts World Championship at the beginning of the year, showed at the legendary race track why he is one of the top players.

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


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.

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 Nü 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."
