well, and again one year went past. Another Nürbrugring 24, this time just after Le Mans.
More than 210 teams signed up for qualifying, so about 200 should see the green flag on Saturday.
The starter list is up here! Contains a horde of GT3 machinery, BMWs and Porsches, custom build race cars for classes SP3 to SP8 (like two RS4s sporting the RS6+ biturbo V8, look for Götz Motorsport, or the Lexus LFAs, the V12 Zagatos, and of cause the staggering Ferrari P4/5 Competizione)
TV coverage is presented by german station Sport1, if you can receive it here are the times
Radio Lemans should do 24h coverage too iirc, and I would keep an eye on Speedhunters, it seems like they do more coverage this year
if you find more stuff around this race, like timings or streams, feel free to post
The combination of Radio LeMans and the official WIGE livestream http://adac.24h-rennen.de/ is the best, to be honest. Anyways, should be again a great weekend for motorsports at the good old Nürburgring Nordschleife!
The coverage is spoiled by retard commentators but if you mute that everything works out fine , anyway they say its 27 hours of total coverage which doesn't sount that bad. The entire track is covered by cameras.
24h Nürburgring - This year as a spectator, next year hopefully as a driver
The way I read it the "official" stream will be just a camera showing the pits with Ring Radio audio, like last year, when no TV coverage is running at the same time (which will then be broadcasted).
But the sportauto website talks about interviews, onboards and generally more stuff in their stream. We will see. This evening there will be some 3 hour TV broadcast just for one of the free practices (and that Porsche Supercup thing)
most parts are covered by TV cams. Some parts, however are only covered by Heli cams looping around those places and, of course, on board shots. If I remember correctly the one area was between Ex-Mühle and Klostertal (I think so because I cannot remember a TV-camera at Lauda's corner in the recent years), the other was between Brünnchen and Pflanzgarten.
Yeah that's probbably gonna happen again. WIGE mainly produces the pictures for Sport 1 and Sport 1+. Every other broadcaster/streamer can order either the same package, or other produced material. During those times where only that stationary camera at the Castrol-S is on air, I'd suggest you to follow the GPS thingy, mentioned in the OP's first reply. Similar to the VLN races where its DVB-T channel mostly shows pictures of the Grand Prix track.
EDIT: However, Sport 1 also only buys the feed from WIGE and cannot influence what is shown.
up to now I'd say the broadcast and commentary is quite good. They answer a lot of fan questions email@example.com and just atm, since the track is quite empty, they do shut up when a nice sounding car bellows past the camera.
It helps that it isn't Edgar Milke commentating. Peter Kohl makes a better job for my taste. But wasn't it 24h-Rennen@sport1.de ? I sent an eMail to that adresse asking why Stuck³ are running under Austrian flag
