Endurance Racing Series adds Nurburgring Nordschleife to calendar
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.
