The AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix will remain an integral part of the Nürburgring event calendar in the long term. The operators of the race track and the organisers of the classic event agreed at an early stage to continue their cooperation until 2028. The largest classic car racing event in continental Europe will continue to take place in mid-August in the future.
The extension of the event contract was already decided one year before the original contract expires in 2023 and thus underlines the good cooperation. Next year, the 50th AvD-Oldtimer-Grand-Prix will celebrate a "round birthday" and the conclusion of the contract guarantees that this edition will be followed by several more.
"We are very pleased to ensure continuity - not only for our spectators in the grandstands, but above all to remain an important fixed point in the annual calendar for teams and drivers. The agreement with our partners at the Nürburgring also gives us security for all subsequent planning," says Wolfgang Schulz as co-managing director of the organisers' association.
The signing of the contract is also an important signal for the operators of the race track: "The AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix represents the entire motorsport history of our race track," explains the Managing Director of Nürburgring 1927 GmbH & Co. KG, Ingo Böder. "The vehicles that compete here have fascinated visitors to the 'Green Hell' for decades and bring the great moments to life. That's why we're delighted to be able to experience this highlight at the Nürburgring for the long term."
