5.000 Zuschauer beim Oldtimer-Grand-Prix: Jetzt wollen andere Serien nachziehen © AvD 5,000 spectators at the Oldtimer Grand Prix: Now other series want to follow suit

Hickhack for the spectators at the Oldtimer Grand Prix: Despite the concerns of the Rhineland-Palatinate Ministry of Health , the historic event will be held this weekend with 5,000 Spectators on stage. The administration of the district of Ahrweiler has given the appropriate approval.

It is the second turn within a very short time. The euphoric announcement that 5,000 spectators may come to the "ring" every day was followed by the rapid intervention of the Ministry of Health. This wanted to limit the maximum number to 1,000 viewers per day.

DTM test Nürburgring 2: Habsburg Fastest, injured Duval out

 DTM test Nürburgring 2: Habsburg Fastest, injured Duval out © Audi AG The DTM has so far been significantly faster in the test than last year Second DTM test day at the Nürburgring - and again an Austrian is in the front: WRT-Audi After an hour's drive, newcomer Ferdinand Habsburg burned the fastest lap in 1: 19.319 and was about a tenth of a second slower than compatriot Philipp Eng on the previous day . The BMW driver came in second place on Tuesday, which offered mostly stable weather, a hundredth behind Habsburg.

However, this was not a problem for the district administration, since the concept provides information from 'Motorsport-Total.com' similar to the 24 Hours of Le Mans "Fan Islands" . So you don't expect 5,000 people once, but five times 1,000 people. Under no circumstances may

spectators from different blocks meet. In addition, strict regulations apply, which the Nürburgring already presented last Friday.

Apparently the matter passed the Ministry of Health for a long time. It looks like someone spoke up who felt they had been left out. The Ministry of Health still has concerns, according to the ' SWR '. The decision-making power lies with the district of Ahrweiler. And of course this is for Nürburgring, by far the most important economic operator in the entire region.

All eyes on the Oldtimer Grand Prix

Now that the Oldtimer Grand Prix has advanced, other racing series want to follow suit. The GT Masters now also wants to drive in front of spectators. It is hoped that viewers will be admitted early next week, i.e. after the Oldtimer Grand Prix.

It fits that the viewer concept for the latter should also serve as a trial run for other events. Representatives of various racing series will be watching the AvD event with great eyes this weekend.

And the 24-hour race didn't give up hope either. Race director Walter Hornung announced in July that would have to do without fans . According to information from 'Motorsport-Total.com', however, this is only a "basic scenario". Additional plans are being worked on internally, taking into account different levels of viewership.

Between GT Masters and 24-hour races, the DTM will also drive on the Nürburgring for two consecutive weekends. Here, too, one hopes for spectators.

The problem with the matter: it remains a moving target. If a second corona wave breaks out, the openings can also be reversed very quickly. So it remains open until the end whether the events will really take place with spectators.
