On May 27 - 28, 2017, here it is again: In the "Green Hell" of the Nürburgring some 160 vehicles are due to line up on the starting grid to take part in the ADAC Zurich 24 Hour Race, which is being staged for the 45th time.
Together with its partner Pirelli, the RONAL GROUP has provided equipment for three BMW GT racecars of automobile manufacturer Team Schirmer and will be on site with a shared stand.
This year things are set to hot up again on the approximately 25 km combined track of the Grand Prix Circuit and the legendary “Nordschleife”. And the RONAL GROUP, which has taken part with its wheels in the 24 Hour Race since 1986, does not plan to be absent from this highlight of the motorsport calendar, which is being staged for the 45th time. After a flow-formed, weight-optimized SPEEDLINE CORSE wheel in 10x18 inch size was used last year, an attractive motorsport wheel was specially developed for this year's race. With dimensions of 11x18 inches, it is not only larger, but also considerably lighter than the previous year's model. In 2017 this one-piece, forged wheel features the color of victory: gold.
Together with the Team Schirmer and Pirelli racing team, the RONAL GROUP is not just presenting its products at the shared stand, but is also running a cool selfie campaign, as well as other attractions to entertain spectators off the racetrack too. Besides a live stream from the pit and a little trip through the history of motor sport, there is another highlight in store for visitors: They can enjoy an exclusive look at the team workshop and watch the mechanics in action. Not least, the RONAL GROUP, Team Schirmer and Pirelli will be taking advantage of the event to give both customers and staff an insight into the world of motorsport: A crew totaling 150 people will be giving their all to carry off one of the coveted trophies and make the event a resounding success.
Anyone who is unable to attend the race in person can keep up with all the latest happenings 24/7 on a Facebook page set up specially (facebook.com/racinglounge.tv): Here you will find interviews and information about the cars and drivers. This page also offers an exclusive look behind the scenes of this mega event and the team.
