Cologne, 14 March 2019.

Racing Director Walter Hornung: “As a globally active brand with a strong affinity for automotive and motorsport, DEKRA is the ideal addition to the group of partners to the world’s biggest race. We are delighted that the group of main sponsors has such prominent members.” With around 210,000 spectators at the Nürburgring at the last count and record viewing ratings in streaming, and in the TV broadcasting on NITRO as well as on 38 broadcasting stations in 152 countries, the 24h Race has once again delivered proof of its exceptional standing in the international racing scene. SPORTTOTAL, that has marketed the race for 20 years on behalf of ADAC Nordrhein, ensures the clean live broadcasting and global content marketing of the event.
The perfect match: DEKRA as a “global partner for safety”
Race Director Walter Hornung: “DEKRA stands first and foremost for safety in all the main walks of life. This rests on the preconditions of neutrality, professionalism and high standards, along with a team spirit and a sense of responsibility, among others. These are values that we as the 24h organizers share with DEKRA in achieving the big goal. In motorsport as well, the safety of all involved is accorded top priority.” DEKRA is also convinced by the partnership. “Our aim is to be the global partner for a safer world,” explains Guido Kutschera, Managing Director of DEKRA Automobil GmbH. “The extensive presence at a racing event with a global profile is therefore a valuable component of our communication. Moreover, the 24h Race is well suited to us: It’s about deploying high tech under the toughest conditions while ensuring the greatest possible safety for all involved. Such challenging situations are precisely what our workforce of more than 46,000 employees across some 60 countries experience in their daily work.”
