Rallycross at the Nürburgring: Thrilling finale for world championship!

28.11.2021

Johan Kristoffersson wins the 2021 FIA World Rallycross Championship at the Nürburgring. On a thrilling Advent weekend, the decision was made in the very last race. In cold and snowy conditions, spectators followed the action on gravel and asphalt at the Müllenbachschleife. The race track operators were satisfied after the successful premiere. "That was totally crazy - an incredible finale," said Johan Kristoffersson. In a breathtaking race shortly before, he won the 2021 World Championship just in front of his rival Timmy Hansen. After the heats and the two semifinals, the two were separated by just one point in the overall standings. Whoever comes out on top in the final will be the 2021 World Rallycross Champion. 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.

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. WRC third-placed Niclas Grönholm even spoke of the craziest rallycross race of his career. The appearance at the Nürburgring was also the end of an era in the World Rallycross Championship. Starting next year, the series will switch from combustion engines to pure electric racing vehicles. The fans also got a first impression of this at the Nürburgring. The legend among rally cars, the Lancia Delta Integrale, was presented in the E version for the 2022 season. The rallycross finale also marked the end of the racing season at the Nürburgring. Now the Nordschleife and Grand Prix circuit will be prepared in the coming weeks. As early as March, fans can look forward to the sound of engines in the Green Hell again. Then with the start of the season of the Nürburgring Endurance Series (26.03.2022).

An possible task with a total of 56 points still up for grabs this weekend. 25 points each for the race win and 3 points per pole position.  Raffaele Marciello and Maximilian Buhk in the Mercedes-AMG have recently dropped points, but since the beginning of the season they have repeatedly underlined their ambitions as one of the strongest teams in the championship.

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.

Sabine Schmitz Curve officially inaugurated

10.09.2021

The Sabine Schmitz Curve was inaugurated on Friday evening at the Nürburgring. This means that the left-hand bend of the Nordschleife near Nürburg now officially bears her name. The unveiling of the new track section sign took place in the presence of her family.

She is the first female racing driver ever to be given her own curve at the Nürburgring in the circuit's over 90-years long history.With her own curve, the Nürburgring places Sabine Schmitz in the ranks of its most influential personalities. Besides her, only three other sections of the track bear the names of racing drivers: Formula 1 record world champion Michael Schumacher, Rudolf Caracciola, the legendary winner of the inaugural race in 1927, and Stefan Bellof. The latter had set the eternal lap record at a race event on the Nordschleife some 40 years ago during training for the 1000-kilometre race.The Sabine Schmitz Curve is located on the outskirts of Nürburg - the racing driver grew up only a few metres away from here. In addition, the location is quickly and easily accessible for spectators. Both were decisive criteria in the choice of the curve, because Sabine Schmitz had a unique bond with the fans and with her home. The curve will therefore also be a place of shared remembrance in the future.The racing driver spent her entire life at and on the 20.832-kilometre Nordschleife. For more than 30 years, she drove vehicles here at the limit - 33,000 laps in total. With her driving skills and her open-hearted manner, she achieved worldwide fame and was for example part of the British car magazine "Top Gear", among others. She was the first and so far the only woman to win the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring in 1996 and 1997. Sabine Schmitz died in March this year at the age of only 51.It doesn't stay quiet for long in the new Sabine Schmitz Curve. From early Saturday morning, the drivers chase through the Green Hell at the six-hour race of the Nürburgring Endurance Series. A racing series in which Sabine Schmitz herself did her laps on the Nordschleife for decades.
