Tag Archives: Nurburgring 24 Hour

2017 has been a brilliant year for GT endurance racing

The recent Spa 24 Hour featured a close fight for victory right into the final hour, but that’s still nowhere near being the closest GT endurance race in 2017. The previous two 24 hour races for GT sportscars (at the Nurburgring and Le Mans) featured incredible last lap battles for victory. That’s amazing! Not only that, but the GTLM class at the Daytona 24 back in January also produced a very close finish, so there has been an amazing trend of nail-biting GT enduros this year.

Two amazing things happened at the Nurburgring 24 Hour race

1. A hailstorm hit the circuit with such intensity that cars became stuck in the ice on uphill sections of track. The race was red flagged because drivers simply couldn’t move until the hailstones cleared.

2. After 24 hours of racing the lead changed with a wheel-to-wheel battle on the FINAL LAP. That’s an insanely close finish at the end of 3400km.
