2016 Rad am Ring
July 29, 2016 - July 31, 2016
“The Rad am Ring version of a lap includes the Grand Prix circuit and the Nordschleife and is some 26 km long. Apart from just under 80 turns it also offers more than 500 metres of difference in altitude. As expected, the tarmac of the race track is perfect and provides a decent grip, especially in the twisting passages downhill. In the “Fuchsröhre” up to 100 km/h have been measured. But this is by no means mandatory. What cannot be avoided – on the contrary – is the ascent to the section “Hohe Acht”, with a temporary gradient of up to 17 %. Here at the latest also racing cyclists will understand the sobriquet “Green Hell” that was given to the Nürburgring by Formula One legend Jackie Stewart in the 70s.
With its Formula One infrastructure, the Nürburgring offers the perfect set-up for the 24-hour race.”
