few hours left ...this is the nicest track of the world.
great source of inspiration for modellers and producers.

Have been there once,will never forget it, specially for the big german fiesta around the track all over the 24 hours.
This is how all races should be.

Absolutely a fabulous race. I will definitely be watching this year.

Although it is great race to watch (I will never get enough of the 2010 start, where Tieman completely humiliates the entire field), I still find it a bit difficult to understand. There is a number of classes, but there is also 'balance of performance'? But anyway, I will enjoy it, I hope you all will and may the best team win.

Maybe the best race in the world! :iceslolan

For those who are interested, but can´t watch it on TV, there are two different live streams:

Evening all,

I've been listening to the coverage of the N24 on Radio Le Mans today, with video courtesy of Sport1 - ideal soundtrack to a good day's modelling on the Moby Dick! Lots of offs in the first few hours, and two or three 'big' shunts too - seems to have calmed down a bit now it's gone dark (well, it is 1am local time!)

Turning in for the night now, but will pick up the coverage again first-thing tomorrow. Porsche win would be good, but it's looking unlikely...

is Falken an off brand of Michelin?

why would they be sponsoring a car that is running on Michelins

05-21-2012, 03:39 AM
Falken is sponsoring the event, so every car has a FALKEN sticker.

What an amazing final lap this was. Unfortunately just a couple seconds before the #11 reached the finish line my live stream stopped and when I restarted it, there was just a crashed #11, so if anyone has already found a clip of what happened, please share it. (EDIT: already found a clip) At least there was a lot of inspiration for Jochen's build :)

That one is brilliant! :D

Truly a great race. I am still confused as to what really happened at the finish. If anybody understands the rules please explain. I still like Lemans a little better but I really think this race is very special.

This (http://porschebahn.wordpress.com/2012/05/20/race-results-for-2012-nurburgring-24-hour-race/) guy posted a press release by Porsche. Apparently Romain was low on fuel (Olaf thought they would only do 154 laps) so he gave up third and plans to wait before the line. Then his engine stalled and he still crossed the line. No idea why he couldn't brake without his engine running.

What's more confusing is that the number 11 is not classified. After the race there was an official timing screen with the number 11 in fourth place, but now they disappeared from the results. They did not finish their 155th lap, but still they did more laps than most of the contenders.

after I've seen both the 24 h (le mans and ring) think the german one is a little more human and still with that "fiesta" ambient nowaday missing in too many modern races, as Le mans.
The place in germany is also much nicer imho.and u still have the opportunity to see also normal cars and normal sunday pilots trying their skill over a so difficult track.

Le mans race is the serious stuff.
No longer newbees, no longer gaming, no BS, no kids from megatuning (sigh Nina is Nina btw..).
Just speed speed speed.The "air" is much more heavy....and first of all, they allow ALMS cars to race on.Gt Ferrari are fighting as hell at le mans,and many big company are making the official car with huge investiment for le mans race only.

Personally I love the way they took timings at the ring.... and also the fact they nearly made a regolamentation that cuts away from the partecipating nearly all the Ferrari (uuuu..scared maybe?? ahaha....down here everybody think so.Still nightmares from the 90s with DTM Alfa humiliating the platoons of mercedes..LOL).Every week somebody makes a sort of world rekord at the ring, and all world love it.:)

Nobody remembers the REAL ring rekord done by Clay regazzoni and Niki Lauda with that red formula 1 made in italy in 1976.
Just the official ringmaster remains stefan bellof (and I agree cause the tragedy he had), but it was already 10 yrs later with a prototype,in a season done only with the same prototype car.
...and wonder why nobody takes the real ringmaster from Kerpen there with something in red as an Fxx.. mah, mistery of the Eiffel.:):)
Between le mans and the ring I deeply prefer the ring btw.Too nice location, too nicer track and too nice fiesta all over.

But le mans is le mans.... (note I was able to stay an entire night awake with some liters of beer, looking live the 24 h classic 2006, 2 meters from the nets.didnt care of cold and rain.real sick,I know :D)

Dear Ring-Fans,

I would like to share a link with you, which was found by a member from our german modelling forum.

It´s a nice little film about the STUCK-BROTHERS at 2012 24h-Race on the NUERBURGRING.

Click the following and have fun.....

Best regards
