  Bugatti releases glorious photos of Chiron Pur Sport at Nürburgring The Nordschleife is considered the most demanding circuit in the world, which is why it is nicknamed the “Green Hell.” 33 left-hand bends and 40 right-hand bends, 17 percent uphill and downhill slopes and a difference in altitude of 300 meters over a length of 20.832 kilometers: any vehicle that can cope with this difficult track quickly and without problems is perfectly fine-tuned. So, it's the ideal place to test the final setup for the suspension and handling of the new Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport.

The night training at the 24 hours at the Nürburgring 2020 ( in the live ticker! ) has been canceled prematurely . After a serious accident by Yelmer Buurman in the main Mercedes # 2 (Haupt / Buurman / Bastian / Ellis), the second qualifying on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife had to be ended prematurely.

There was concern about the driver for a short time. "I'm worried about both of them at the moment - the car and Yelmer," said team-mate Nico Bastian shortly after the accident, who had previously set the fastest time of the night session in 8: 19.079 minutes. The Mercedes moved up to sixth place in the overall standings, which is now of secondary importance.

Mercedes- AMG - More than 8 hours have passed and heavy rain has challenged the teams on the race track. See how the drivers, team managers and mechanics are

The ADAC TOTAL 24-hour race promises to be a race of superlatives as always and for one day and one night pushes both men and machines to the Where else can you experience a field of entrants with way over 160 vehicles driving at full speed for one whole day and night around the longest

A few minutes later there was the good news: Buurman is doing well. It remains to be seen whether the Mercedes-AMG GT3 can be repaired. Either way, it would be a long night for the mechanics.

race director Walter Hornung justifies the breakdown with the condition of the guardrails: "The guardrail has to be repaired first. The repair would take longer than the training would have been possible." So the red flag was decided half an hour before the end.

Second accident by Falken-Porsche

Before that, when it started to rain, the Falken-Porsche # 44 (Bachler / S. Müller / Dumbreck / Ragginger) had an accident. In the dreaded left-hand bend exiting Fuchsröhre and entering Adenauer Forst, the Porsche 911 GT3 R hit hard.

"Peter flew to oil in the Fuchsröhre. He said there was only water and oil around him. Then the radio was gone," says team boss Sven Schnabl. The Porsche # 44 also received a penalty: It had to start from the end of the first start group for disregarding a Code 60 zone. According to Schnabl, it should have been a separate incident.

The Nordschleife once again writes one crazy story after another this year. Check out the highlights after 7 hours of race time! 160 teams face the challenge: 24 hours at the longest and most demanding racetrack in the world: the Nürburgring .

The absolute best time in the cumulative classification is still 8: 11.428 minutes, presented by Marco Mapelli in a Konrad-Lamborghini # 21 (Jefferies / Perera / Mapelli / Di Martino) in the first meeting on Thursday afternoon.

The time was not reached at night. This is also due to the fact that rain set in at around 10:15 p.m., which in the end could also have caused the AMG accident. By the way, it really was

"night" this time. Because the race is no longer around the summer solstice, but around the equinox, it was already dark at the beginning of the session. In addition, there is no lighting or the fans' campfires. And finally, due to the thinned field, there is also less headlights. All of this led to an almost eerie atmosphere with fresh temperatures of twelve to 15 degrees.

The vehicles are made fit again for the last qualifying session at night or in the morning. This is on the program on Friday lunchtime at 1:25 p.m. It is about the starting order for the positions outside of the top qualifying. The top positions will be worked out in two sessions on Friday evening from 5:50 p.m.
