Contract extension ensures long-term 24-hour races


The ADAC TOTAL 24h Race remains the motorsport highlight in the calendar of the Nürburgring until at least 2028. This was announced by the race track operators and the organising ADAC Nordrhein just before the 49th edition of the endurance classic (3 to 6 June). The contract, which runs until and including 2023, has been extended for a further five years ahead of schedule.

“The extension of the contract is great news for all fans of the Nordschleife”, said Mirco Hansen, head of the 24h Race. “We have just seen in the two Corona years just how important this mega-event is for the entire region. That’s why we’re happy to be able to plan for at least 2028. This gives everyone involved – teams, drivers and partners of the world’s biggest race – long-term security. ”

Mirco Markfort, Managing Director of the Nürburgring, adds: “The 24h Race conveys the demands and uniqueness of our race track to a global public. With the early renewal of the contract, it is now ensured that the world’s largest motorsport party will have its permanent place at the Nordschleife until at least 2028. ”

The dates for the 50th and 51st editions of the 24h Race are already set. Fans can now write down the Ascension weekends 2022 (26 – 29 May) and 2023 (18 – 21 May) in the calendar.
