Nürburgring and "Friends of the Nürburgring": Investment of € 50,000 in the jobs of the sports stewards

10.10.2023

With a total investment of 50,000 euros, the stands and workplaces of the sports stewards along the Nordschleife were refurbished this season. The workplaces at a total of 33 posts have been upgraded through various measures. The measure was supported by the "Friends of the Nürburgring" association. The latter contributed 15,000 euros as an earmarked donation. Sports stewards are the good souls of motorsports. Their tasks around the race track are manifold - they ensure safety and a correct sporting procedure. Sports stewards wave the different colored flags that send important signals to the racers, they intervene if a vehicle has an accident or a vehicle part is lost, and they are at the track for every race: in wind, sun, and rain. "Without the sports stewards, the events at our racetrack would not be so feasible. Their dedication and passion for motorsport is what makes it all possible," explains Andreas Klapperich, Team Leader Track Operations & Safety at the Nürburgring. "That's why upgrading the stands and workstations is not only necessary but also a matter of the heart." After several small improvements in previous years, a larger investment followed this season. The project, which totaled 50,000 euros, included various large and small measures and works - from a new plexiglass screen at the track marshal shelter to new metal stairs for fast and safe operation. "We supported the upgrading of the stand and workplaces of the sports marshals out of deep conviction," explains Manfred Sattler, chairman of the "Friends of the Nürburgring" association. "For years, we have been committed to the Nürburgring as a legendary race track and to all those who contribute here full of energy. The sports officials are undoubtedly one of them - and therefore it was no question that we contribute €15,000 here."

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. The fact that emotional moments, people and a very special feeling of longing make up the Nürburgring will be visible and tangible this season under the new claim of the destination. From now on, the motto at the Nürburgring is: "we make your heart race". This claim stands for the passion of the employees of 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 by a visit to the Nürburgring Endurance Series just as much as 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 taking part in a corporate 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 all over the world. Through emotional scenes - for example in the live broadcast of a race by Nürburgring.tv 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 when: 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: "nürburgring. we make your heart race."
