More than 500 cars - including about 60 pre-war racing cars - have registered for this year's Oldtimer Grand Prix. From 11-13 August the friends of motorsports will be drawn to the Nürburgring . Not only this event celebrates its 90th birthday, but also the engine with which Stefan Bellof made his first attempts in Formula One: The Cosworth-optimized Ford V8, originally developed for the Lotus team, was first used at the GP in Zandvoort in 1967 and recorded legendary 155 victories until 1983. For the friends of Stefan Bellof, the high-caliber event at the Nürburgring is a very special weekend, his name is connected to the Nordschleife for eternity by the 1983 record-breaking record of 6: 11,13 minutes on a Porsche 956. That is why the Nürburgring is the ideal location for the presentation of the new racing jackets from the Stefan-Bellof-Collection, which can be reached in three places for the fans.
Experts from the Nürburgring combine two concepts: the long straight at the end of the Nordschleife, and on the other hand, the petrol station along the federal road running parallel to the circuit section. Hans-Joachim Retterath - called "Retti" - leads the gastronomy operation of the third generation, expanded in 1929 by a petrol station, and stands like no other for a hospitality that offers the innumerable fans of the Motorport a second home.

But in 1965 the glorious time of the circuit in the Stuttgart West ended, but since 2008 the Solitude Revival is reminiscent of this era.

ADAC 1000 km race from the Nürburgring on a Porsche 956 with the starting number 2. With the starting number 2, the Porsche LMP team also won this year on the legendary circuit of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and comes to the race on 16 July 2017 As a table leader to the not less legendary Nürburgring.
