En­durance Rac­ing Se­ries adds Nur­bur­gring Nord­schleife to cal­en­dar

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The En­durance Rac­ing Se­ries will race on the Nur­bur­gring Nord­schleife this year as part of its five-event cal­en­dar.

En­ter­ing its se­cond sea­son, or­gan­is­ers are plan­ning to run a three-hour event along­side an as yet un­con­firmed Ger­man club on Oc­to­ber 16.

Start­ing with a round at Rockingham on April 23, the se­ries will switch from the two- and three-hour events it ran in 2015 to dou­ble its track time with six-hour events at ev­ery round – aside from its Nur­bur­gring out­ing – which will in­clude a day-dusk race at An­gle­sey and a day-night race at Snet­ter­ton to end its sea­son. “Last year we were run­ning three-hour races and we were the only ones do­ing that,” said se­ries boss David Hornsey. “This year some com­peti­tors have moved in to that space, so to give our cus­tomers some­thing unique, but also to avoid­ing tread­ing on our com­peti­tors’ toes, we de­cided to switch to six-hour races.

“We’re very lucky that of some of the most iconic cir­cuits around the world, we’re within dis­tance of two of the best – Spa-fran­cor­champs and the Nur­bur­gring Nord­schleife.
