The Official 24 hours Nurburgring thread

The 24 hours Nurburgring is officially starting on Friday with the first training at 10.00am CET

Official Homepage

Last year, I had managed to find a site with the live broadcast, where the cars could be tracked on the track map in real time. I'll check the boards to see if I can find something similar this year again.

That was a T-Mobil site that you found last year, wasn't it?

I wonder when/if the TV coverage will air. I just scanned Speed TV for those of us in the US (and possesing digital cable ) I couldn't find it.

However, the 24Hrs of LeMans will be aired off an on all weekend.

LeMans and Nurburgring run at the same time I had never noticed that.

What a great weekend of race watching! 24 Hours of LeMans all day/night on Saturday. Nextel Cup at Pocono (one of the more interesting ovals) and F1 at Canada on Sunday!

BUT... Don't forget MotoGP at Barcelona! It will be tape-delayed and shown on Speed right after Canada... and it will probably be the best race of the weekend.

This is such a gearhead weekend!

Currently on lap 20 the 42 car is shown in the lead.



With a 1 lap lead!

The 43 car in 4th.

Rain showers have affected the situation.

Rain kind of goes with the territory doesn't it?

Has there been any commentary there about running the 24 hours at the 'Ring the same weekend as LeMans? Are they trying to make some sort of a statement or is there someone behind the scheduling who wants to go up against the ACO? Like BMW?

Well, rain surely goes with the territory, but if you have watched on-board cameras on the 'Ring, you'll notice how the rain could be fatal for some cars on those slopes.

As for the scheduling, I don't believe that there's someone behind there. In the last 2-3 years, all the three big events are in the same weekend (Le Mans, 24 hours Nurburgring and F1 Canada).

A lot of people lost interest in Le Mans after Mercedes, BMW and Bentley is not taking part in the race. If you have checked the team list this year, there will be only 48 cars in the race. For a historical race like Le Mans, it's way too low, IMO.

At lap 58, 9 hours and 50 minutes into the race, it's BMW M3 GTR's in 1 and 2 place. I don't know exactly when BMW took the top two places.
