ADAC TOTAL 24h-Rennen



The 47th ADAC Total 24h-Rennen at the Nürburgring remains thrilling: in the brief summer night, teams with the Mercedes-AMG GT3s initially were able to strengthen their promising positions among the top teams.



The #48 Mercedes-AMG Team MANN-FILTER car came out of the night while on course for a podium result. An accident with five hours remaining however blew chances of victory for Lance David Arnold, Maximilian Götz, Christian Hohenadel (all GER) and Raffaele Marciello (ITA).


Meanwhile, the class-leading #70 BLACK FALCON Team IDENTICA Mercedes-AMG GT4 has good chances of the SP10 class win.




•    Mercedes-AMG GT3 in positions 5, 6, 7, 9 and 21 after 19 hours



In the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring, teams with the cars from Affalterbach initially continued their strong performance in the second half of the race. Following the retirement of the leading #2 BLACK FALCON Mercedes-AMG GT3 after eight hours, the #48 car of the Mercedes-AMG Team MANN-FILTER established itself on course for a podium finish.


During the cooler night stints, Lance David Arnold, Maximilian Götz, Christian Hohenadel and Raffaele Marciello put the cars in front of them under pressure. Halfway through the race, Marciello drove the MANN-FILTER ‘mamba’ up into second place. However, an overtaking manoeuvre while yellow flags were out resulted into a 32 seconds’ time penalty for the team.



Nevertheless, the #48 cemented its third place in the morning hours. With slightly over five hours remaining, Götz came off the track at ‘Hohe Acht’ and had to park the car. Götz was not to blame as the accident probably was the consequence of earlier contact while lapping another car in the early morning hours.



With 124 laps of the approximately 25 kilometres long combination of the Grand Prix circuit and the Nordschleife completed, the #6 car of the Mercedes-AMG Team BLACK FALCON is still on the lead lap. Patrick Assenheimer, Nico Bastian (both GER), Yelmer Buurman (NED) and Gabriele Piana (ITA) held on to their fifth place with trouble-free laps in the second half of the race.



The #3 BLACK FALCON car in sixth place as well as the #16 and the #18 GetSpeed Performance entries in seventh and ninth place respectively also still have excellent perspectives of a top result. The Customer Racing Team’s #17 car had to deal with some problems in the opening stages of the race and is currently in 21st place, five laps down.




With a class lead in the SP10 category, the #70 BLACK FALCON Team IDENTICA Mercedes-AMG GT4 with Marek Böckmann (GER), Yannick Mettler (SUI), Tobias Müller (GER) and Tristan Viidas (EST) is taking on the final hours of the race. After a longer repair break during the night, the #46 BLACK FALCON Team KNUFFI GT4 has rejoined the race and is in sixth place of the SP8T class.




Nico Bastian, Mercedes-AMG Team BLACK FALCON #6
: “During the night, we made good inroads. In the opening part of the race, we lost some time and we are still dealing with the effects. But currently, things are going well. We will try to remain in the top six.”



Luca Stolz, Mercedes-AMG Team BLACK FALCON #3
: “I was driving into the morning during ‘happy hour’ so to say. With the sun standing so low, finding the turning points at the Grand Prix track wasn’t quite easy. Unfortunately, we are more or less stuck in eighth place, but there is still a long way to go and we will continue to go flat-out.”



Kenneth Heyer, GetSpeed Performance #16:
“Apart from a puncture, we made it through the night very well. The puncture didn’t cost us a lot of time. Currently our top ten position seems quite stable. The gaps tend to get bigger. There is not much we can do by our own means, but there still is a lot of time left.”



Fabian Vettel, GetSpeed Performance #18:
“Because of the time of year, the night was a rather short one. As a result, I didn’t get to drive at all when it was really dark, but now I am back behind the wheel. So far, things are going perfectly for us.”



Janine Hill, GetSpeed Performance #17:
“My first 24-hour race with the Mercedes-AMG GT3 is great fun. The night here was entertaining as ever with all the lights and bonfires around the track. We had a puncture and some technical issues that cost us time. But we don’t give up. Let’s see what the remainder of the race still has in store.”
