The ADAC TOTAL 24-hour race will be contested on a 25.378-kilometre combination of the Grand Prix circuit and the Nordschleife northern loop. “It’s like a winding country road. But as opposed to road traffic, maximum speed is permitted on the Nordschleife – it’s huge fun,” says title defender Richard Lietz. “The most extraordinary thing is that you have to inch your way closer to the limit every single lap. The conditions often change in the different track sectors, the traffic is unpredictable, and the fuel consumption alone changes the behaviour of the car on each lap,” explains Frédéric Makowiecki.
The winners of the 2018 24-hour race will take up the challenge in the

The 911 GT3 R was newly developed for the 2019 season. Improvements in the areas of aerodynamics and kinematics were systematically implemented from the insights garnered from the many race outings of its predecessor. The six-cylinder engine in the rear of the GT3 customer racer produces over 368 kW (500 hp). The successful predecessor vehicle has netted many victories in international racing series, including the IMSA SportsCar Championship, the World Challenge, the ADAC GT Masters, the 24-hour race on the Nürburgring and the Bathurst 12-hour race.
The 24-hour race on the Nürburgring is contested on 22-23 June and starts at 3.30pm. The free-TV station RTL Nitro broadcasts the top qualifying (21 June, 19:00 hours) as well as the entire race live. The Eifel classic can been viewed free-of-charge via live streaming on the internet website www.24h-Rennen.de as well as on numerous motorsport web portals.
