Nürburgring once again becomes a pilgrimage site for motorsport fans at the 12h race


From 9 to 11 September 2022, the Nürburgring will offer motorsport entertainment at the highest level. At the premiere of the 12h Nürburgring, there will be a varied programme for the spectators on and off the race track. Six hours of racing action on Saturday and Sunday will be garnished by the big 'Back to the 90's' party in the ring°arena and a colourful programme on the ring°boulevard and in the ring°carré, where there will be plenty to discover. At the NLS season highlight, on-demand camping sites will also be open at the Nordschleife from Thursday evening to Sunday. Tickets for the 12h Nürburgring are available online at www.nuerburgring.de. Weekend tickets are available for 42 euros per person. Young people up to 14 years of age are admitted free of charge.

The 12h Nürburgring will feature a sporting novelty. The race will be run in two sections of six hours each. The special feature is that on Sunday morning, the cars will return to the race track in the same intervals as they were waved off on Saturday evening at 8:30 pm. The procedure is comparable, for example, with the pursuit race in the biathlon.
On Saturday evening, the start-finish straight becomes a parc fermé after the flag-off. No work is allowed on the cars overnight. On Sunday morning, all the cars will move into the pit lane, where they will line up in three rows after the finish. The winner of part one will be the first to start from the pit lane. The other cars follow in the same distance as when they crossed the finish line on Saturday. Code-60 then applies throughout the circuit. Once all the cars have started the race, the speed limit is lifted and the chase is on.

From the grandstand into the ring°arena: 'Back to the 90's'
After part one of the race, the party 'Back to the 90's' will be going on in the ring°arena on Saturday evening. The journey back in time to the age of boy bands, neon colours and wild hairstyles will be accompanied by the show acts Masterboy & Beatrix Delgado, Candela Squad, Caught in the Act, Loona and the Mütze Katze DJ team. The event starts with the falling of the chequered flag at 20:30. Tickets for 'Back to the 90's' can be booked online at www.nuerburgring.de. Buyers who book a 12h Nürburgring ticket at the same time will receive a € 5.00 discount on the party ticket in the Nürburgring online shop.

Camping at the Nordschleife for the first time at the NLS 
For the first time at the 12h Nürburgring, the demand camping sites around the Nordschleife will be opened at an NLS race. This gives race fans the opportunity to set up camp and enjoy the Green Hell, just like at the 24h race.
