After the cancellation in 2020 due to the pandemic, the 35th edition of the Inter-national ADAC Truck Grand Prix 2021 will definitely take place and will be held as a hybrid event - with thrilling motorsport and digital offerings.
"For the season highlight of the European Truck Racing Championship, we are currently creating a concept that combines the best of both worlds - physical and digital. We want to offer the motorsport fans on site and at home an attractive platform. We are working flat out to achieve this," says Axel Friedhoff, Director of Sport at ADAC Mittelrhein e.V.
The sporting part of the International ADAC Truck Grand Prix will focus on the rounds of the FIA European Championship from 16 to 18 July. 20 race trucks with 1,500 hp and prominent drivers like Jochen Hahn, Norbert Kiss and Sascha Lenz will compete for the weekend victory and thus for important points in the EM ranking. This will be the second time that the IDM Superbike 1000 stops at the Nürburgring.
Against the background of the dynamic pandemic development with accompanying contact restrictions, the organisers unfortunately had to cancel the Country Festival, the trucker camps and open paddock as well as the trade fair this year. Subject to official approval, a limited number of spectators can be admitted.
In order to make the visitor experience at the Nürburgring as safe and successful as possible, the organisers have developed a series of measures in the form of a non-contact spectator concept in close coordination with the Nürburgring, in accordance with the requirements of the Corona Protection Ordinance of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate, to ensure a safe live experience on site. To this end, ADAC Mittelrhein e.V. is in contact with the responsible district administration of Ahrweiler.
Significantly lower ticket prices for 2021
The tickets for the International ADAC Truck Grand Prix 2021 will be offered at considerably cheaper conditions due to the cutback of the supporting programme caused by the pandemic. The ticket prices have been reduced by about 50 per cent and vary between 20 and 65 Euros.
Motorsport fans who have already purchased tickets for this year can redeem them at the 2022 International ADAC Truck Grand Prix, which will take place at the Nürburgring from 15 to 17 July 2022.
As a general rule, tickets purchased through the official ADAC Truck Grand Prix shop can be returned at any time. All that is required is an e-mail to kundenservice-truck-gp(at)eventim.de. Customers who did not purchase their tickets in the official ADAC Truck Grand Prix shop or via our hotline should contact the respective operator directly.
"We would be very pleased if the ticket buyers would remain loyal to us for our Truck Grand Prix in 2022. We will provide information about the next concrete steps regarding this year's event promptly at a digital press conference," looks ahead to organisation manager Marc Hennerici.
