Twenty-four hours at full speed on the Green Hell - every year, this unique challenge lures some hundreds of thousands of motor sport fans to the Nürburgring. No other motor sport event attracts as many drivers and spectators as does the 24 Hours Nürburgring on the Nordschleife. Since its creation in 1970, the race has been marked by contrasts: young drivers against older ones, professionals against amateurs, and touring cars against sports cars. And dialled into those equations is the unpredictable and unforgiving weather of the Eifel. This endurance race on the most beautiful and the most difficult circuit in the World occasionally discovered new rising stars, but also shattered the dreams of many others. But for sure, those 24 hours were never boring.
This official book covers the complete history of the 24 Hours Nürburgring, from its first race in 1970, to the latest one in 2012. The authors of the book are well-known in motor sport publishing. Wilfried Müller and Jörg Ufer describe the evolution of the most popular race in Germany, from its creation to what it is today. They tell fascinating inside stories of the race and feature the drivers who helped to make this race a true legend, men like Volker Strycek, Walter Röhrl, or Olaf Manthey and his incredible team. Furthermore, this lavishly illustrated book also contains the complete results of the forty races held since the creation of the event.
