The "ADAC 1000 km Race" is designed as a thoroughbred racing event on the entire Nürburgring circuit with both tracks.
Participants with very historical "1000 km race" classics, which today are no longer in conformity with the Nordschleife or the overall course (due to chassis structureand safety features – mostly open-top sports cars from the 50s and 60s) , start in a sprint race / evening race (Revival Sprint) on Friday evening on the Grand Prix circuit and will additionally drive memorable demo laps on Saturday morning on the Nordschleife.
Highlights for fans
All grandstands will be open for the 1000 kilometer race and also will the very cult and traditionally popular spectator areas at the Nordschleife.
It is our job – with great pleasure – to let an authentic return of this long-distance classic race happen as close to the public and visitors as possible.
Shortly we will publish the ticket conditions for the 2021 access here. From October 2020 the advance-ticket-sale will start here as well. Tickets for the "ADAC-1000 Kilometer Race" will only be available in advance - but include access to all the well-known Nordschleife spectators- and fan-areas.
