In just a few days the 50th Edition of the 24h Nürburgring Race (26 – 29 May 2022) will take place again. But the best news is, in 2022 fans will finally return to the track!
The Nürburgring Nordschleife is most beautiful when the fans not only stand guard for the drivers on the Grand Prix circuit but also on the Nordschleife.
Several days ago, fans were already able to witness how exciting this is during the two 24h race qualifying races at the beginning of May 2022.
Winning the Nürburgring 24-hour endurance race is one of the most prestigious achievements that a racing driver, racing team, car manufacturer, suspension manufacturer, or wheel manufacturer can accomplish.
In recent times, as a suspension manufacturer, we have already been able to equip the overall winners – Zakspeed in 2002, Manthey-Racing in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2018, 2021, and Rowe Racing in 2020 – at the endurance classic on the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
Anyone who watched the two 24-hour race Nürburgring qualifiers saw that our motorsport customers are well-positioned for the endurance classic. As seasoned motorsport fans know, there are of course always a lot of tactics involved in the run-up to the race.
The question of who will win the 24-hour race in the Green Hell is always uncertain, and that’s what has made this race so exciting for the past 50 years. The BMW M4 GT3 and Porsche 911 GT3 R in the SP9 class, which are being represented by teams such as BMW Junior Team, Falken Motorsport, Huber Motorsport, Manthey-Racing, Rowe Racing, Schubert Motorsport, Walkenhorst Motorsport, and numerous others, have all good cards for the overall victory.
In 2022, KW will again be one of the largest suspension suppliers for the Nürburgring 24h race motorsport teams. While not only top BMW and several Porsche teams rely on our KW motorsport suspension program.
Across the entire starting field, a total of 64 of the 138 race cars mentioned are equipped with KW suspensions.
Besides all BMW M4 GT3, Porsche 911 GT3 R, Toyota GR Supra GT4, Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport, and BMW M240i Racing Cup, there are also many so-called underdogs, such as the race cars based on compact and small cars like the Mini John Cooper Works, Renault Mégane R.S., Hyundai i30 N, BMW 325i and VW Golf, which are built by several private teams and who are all equipped with KW motorsport suspensions.
As in previous years, the entire race will be broadcast live on the German-spoken TV channel RTL Nitro. In addition to free TV, RTL+ will also stream the entire race.
Though the organizer is also broadcasting the 50th edition of the Nürburgring 24h Race in both German and English language on the official YouTube channel. Various teams will also be broadcasting the race via onboard cameras on several social media channels. So it’s worth tuning in to!
