It was the emotional return of the fans: 230,000 visitors celebrated a huge motorsport party at the ADAC TotalEnergies 24h Nürburgring. The organisers, police and Nürburgring operating company look back with satisfaction on a successful weekend - with a great atmosphere and no incidents worth mentioning. At the same time, the 24-hour race was a strong start to the Nürburgring event summer. The next big event is already in the starting blocks: Already next weekend 90,000 festival fans will come to the Nürburgring - then for Rock am Ring (3-5 June). "I had goose bumps. Full grandstands and a great atmosphere around the track. You work all year for moments like that. That's what drives us as a race track and event location," the Managing Director of the Nürburgring Betreibergesellschaft, Christian Stephani, said enthusiastically after the weekend. "You could really feel this atmosphere everywhere. From the campsite at the Nordschleife to the lounges." This emotion is also shared by the sporting director of the organiser ADAC Nordrhein, Mirco Hansen: "The fans provide the emotional setting for our unique race. The pictures of the grid, the full grandstands and the fans around the Nordschleife - that was sensational. That has inspired everyone. The drivers and teams also confirm that." The Mayen police department also looks back on the past weekend with satisfaction. "The first official major event in two years went absolutely satisfactorily from a police point of view," explains press spokesman Nils Christ. "Apart from minor traffic disruptions, there were no noteworthy disturbances. We were on duty with strong forces and recorded only a few low-level offences despite the high number of visitors." For the police there is now only a short breather. The officers will be back on duty in time for Rock am Ring. The same goes for the team of the Nürburgring operating company. Managing director Ingo Böder, who together with Stephani is responsible for the fate of the race track, speaks of an organisational and operational tour de force: "I am proud of the whole team. While half of them were working on the 24h race, the others were already preparing Rock am Ring. On two weekends in a row, we have almost a big city as our guest. We can only manage this task with commitment and many years of event experience." From Friday, 3 June, 90,000 festival visitors are expected at the Nürburgring. The focus will then be on international top bands like Green Day, Volbeat or Muse. Together with the fans, they will continue to write the history of the Nürburgring Event Summer.

The Nürburgring kicks off the season. In 2022, the versatile event location will once again offer the entire event portfolio with engine sounds, guitar tones and endurance sports. Finally, the focus is back on the fan experience. At the ADAC TotalEnergies 24h-Nürburgring, the unique party atmosphere will return to the Green Hell for the 50th anniversary, and at Rock am Ring thousands of festival visitors will finally celebrate together again. Those who want to feel like a racing driver themselves this year are also in good hands at the Nürburgring. The training sessions for everyone with the new Formula 4 cars provide unique memories. Despite the different event formats, thrilling motorsport is still the focus at the legendary race track. The racing series and vehicles are characterised by an enormous variety. Impressive race trucks, such as at the ADAC Truck Grand Prix, are just as much a part of the experience as international top-class sport in the DTM or the ADAC GT Masters. Meanwhile, the FIA World RX of Germany is a fully electric event with plenty of power under the bonnet. On the other hand, vehicles from all eras of motorsport await at a wide variety of classic car events such as the AvD-Oldtimer-Grand-Prix or the ADAC 1000-km-Race.

The emotional conclusion here is the joint parade of all participants over the legendary Nordschleife.
