NLS dates 2023: Eight times through the Green Hell


The race calendar of the Nürburgring Endurance Series for 2023 is set: Next year, the popular series will again stage eight races on the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife. Six events will cover the classic NLS race distance of four hours, one race will last six hours and one 12 hours. The new season highlight of the NLS with camping at the Nordschleife will be held from 8 to 10 September.

The 2023 endurance teams will start on 18 March with NLS1. One week before, the unofficial starting signal for the 47th season of the traditional racing series in the Green Hell will be given with the test and set-up run (11-12 March). Until the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring (18-21 May), two more NLS events will take place on 1 and 15 April. 

NLS4 on 17 June will be followed by the 6h race on 8 July. After a summer break of just under two months, the final spurt begins with the 12h Nürburgring from 8-10 September. NLS7 (23 September) and the season finale NLS8 on 7 October follow in a two-week rhythm. 

In 2023, there will again be a full day of test and setting runs on the Friday before the races. These not only serve to prepare for the race, but also offer the possibility of co-pilot rides in the afternoon, so that partners and guests can experience the NLS result with all their senses. 

Alternative dates provide planning security
NLS has made provisions for weather-related race cancellations, at least in terms of alternative dates: Should one of the first two races not be able to take place due to weather conditions, there is the option to extend NLS3 as a doubleheader to 16 April. Another alternative date is 4 November.
