Vettel blasts through the “green hell” in a KNAUS-themed race car

Jandelsbrunn. 25 kilometres, almost 90 turns, around 160 cars, full speed day and night – and KNAUS is in the middle of it all: at the ADAC TOTAL 24‐hour race held on the legendary Nürburgring, a car with KNAUS branding will also line up in front of 200,000 fans and hopefully be able to record top times on the track. KNAUS is the main sponsor of the GetSpeed Performance team, which is starting the long‐distance race in the Eifel region with three Mercedes AMG GT3 race cars. The race will be held from 20–23 June 2019.

One of the three GetSpeed Performance race cars is a true KNAUS: the race number 18 represents the Bavarian state colours of blue and white – and also includes the Knaus wordmark, logo and brand claims on its aerodynamic body. The entire team at Knaus Tabbert will be cheering when the KNAUS race car thunders across the track in the Eifel.

During the highlight of the Nürburgring season, some well‐known names are piloting the 550‐hp KNAUS Mercedes AMG GT3: Fabian Vettel (20),  the younger brother of Formula‐One star Sebastian Vettel, will alternate with Luca Ludwig (30) and Philip Ellis (26, Great Britain). Luca Ludwig is the son of the touring car legend Klaus Ludwig, Ellis has been a staple in the motorsports scene for almost 10 years.

By the way: Knaus Tabbert motorhomes and caravans are not just part of the scenery in the visitors’ parking lot at the „green hell‟, but also in the paddock. Fabian Vettel arrives at the race track in his comfortable L!VE WAVE 650 MX. „And in between races, I look forward to the comfortable bed in my KNAUS,‟ says the 20‐year‐old Vettel, who is originally from Heppenheim.

NITRO will televise the entire race – non‐stop and live. In addition, a livestream will be available at www.motorsport‐total.com. All information about the race can be accessed at www.24h‐rennen.de.
