2013 Nürburgring 24 hour race dates confirmed

Audi at 2012 Nurburgring 24 hour race

The dates for the 41st running of the Nürburgring 24 hour race have been confirmed and the event will be held from 17–20 May 2013. In an unusual step, for the first time ever, the race will be held over the Pentecost weekend and the race will start on a Sunday and end on a Monday.

As usual there will be a number of support categories and the Top 40 qualifying shootout will also return.

Confirmation of dates for the 2013 race also ends speculation that the 24 hour may not have gone ahead due to ongoing financial troubles faced by Nürburgring GmbH.
