Watch The Final Minutes Of The Nürburgring 24 Hours And Lose Your Mind

Illustration for article titled Watch The Final Minutes Of The Nürburgring 24 Hours And Lose Your Mind

Context is everything in sports, particularly in 24-hour endurance racing where pit stops and timing rules can impact the outcome. You don’t really need any of that here. Just watch and enjoy.

I’m going to go against precedent here and not spoil the ending for these final 20 minutes, because the twists and turns for what is a tiny sliver of time in the grand scheme of a 24-hour race makes it incredibly enjoyable even if you didn’t watch any of it.

The only context I’ll provide is that in a 24-hour race you get to finish the lap, even if you cross the line with only a second to spare and that the Nürburgring is over 15 miles long.

That poor Clio!

I watched most of this yesterday, including the start which was insane. The size of the area that track covers is immense and the hail made it impossible for the cars to go anywhere!

I woke up this morning, and started watching again while I waited for Monaco to start. The final 25-30 minutes, or 2-3 laps, were very intense.

This is the first time I’ve seen this race and it is now on my bucket list of endurance races I want to attend live. I’ve been to the 24 Hours of Daytona, so thats one down, three to go!
