Dates announced for 2010 Nürburgring 24 hour race

Nurburgring 24 hour race

Dates for the 38th running of the Nürburgring 24 hour race were announced on the race’s official website last week. Those planning on attending need to mark their calendars down for 13-16 May 2010.

“We are delighted with being able to announce the Ascension-Weekend date that early,” said Peter Geishecker, the man responsible for the organisation of the ADAC Zurich 24h Race Nürburgring. “It provides all those involved extraordinary planning reliability. Quite obviously, we had preferred holding the event on the second bank-holiday weekend, in June, as the weather is somewhat less changeable, then. But the Nürnburgring GmbH has got a long-term agreement with the organisers of ‘Rock am Ring’ that traditionally is held on the first weekend in June. And that’s a fact we just have to accept.”
