“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 NÃ¼rburgring. “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 NÃ¼rnburgring 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.”
