H&R is to take over from former partner Bilstein in the 47th edition of the legendary race that will take place from June 20 to 23, 2019, at the Nürburgring.

Heinz Remmen, Managing Director of H&R, who won the VLN Championship himself back in 2001 states: “The quality and durability of our components often make the difference between victory and defeat, particularly with endurance racing at the Nordschleife. We have already been able to win overall victories in the ‘Green Hell’ and are now looking forward to presenting our brand to the general public as official main sponsor of the 24h Race.” Racing Director Walter Hornung: “A strong signal that H&R as a company known and active for many years in the motorsport has signed for three years as premium partner. H&R stands for ‘Made in Germany‘ quality and is known and loved in motor sport as a parts supplier right through to the top classes.” Also SPORTTOTAL LIVE GmbH is satisfied with the adreed partnership: “In H&R we have won an ideal partner with in-depth competence in racing with whom we will work together on sustainably developing the spectacular 24h racing event at the Nordschleife,”says Managing Director Matthias Wurm.
