Accepted to the 24h-Rennen Nürburgring (Nordschleife)

It’s been a long while since I posted one of my exciting “accepted” letters, yet I’m thrilled to say that I have been accepted to volunteer the upcoming 24h of Nürburgring race. My first trip to the “ring”… and to actually volunteer on the Nordschleife I have no words to describe the feeling. I’m overwhelmed. Considering I will be driving there directly from my second stint at the 24 hours of Le Mans in France!

I must thank my dear friend Pol from Belgium for helping me organize this trip as I could not have even began to plan things without him. Truly thankful for his contribution to this dream. And I must also thank my good friend Superbunny for suggesting this event in the first place. I believe he mentioned it as we volunteered for the Petit Le Mans together in 2013 at the Road America circuit… or was it during the V8 Supercars at COTA in Texas. Can’t remember now but he put the bug in my head and I completely committed to it. The Ring or bust!

Thank you Pol, Chris, and to all the others that have contributed to this crazy hobby I have! None of this would be possible without helpful people in this small marshaling community. Danke! Merci!
