Audi will also exhibit the new RS 3 LMS for ADAC TCR Germany. The Toyota GR Supra GT4, which is making its race debut in ADAC GT4 Germany in Hockenheim, will also be on display. Furthermore, the new race car, in which the talented young drivers will start in next year’s ADAC Formula 4 series, will also be presented at 10:15 on Saturday.
Popular crowd-pullers: the eBay Box and eBay Tower
The eBay Box and the eBay Tower are the places to be for anyone who loves special insights and spectacular views. In the eBay Box, the fans are very close to the action and have a unique view of the pit lane – even during the sessions. The latest episode of the online magazine “ADAC GT Masters Backstage” will be broadcast from here at 11:00 on Sunday, and it goes without saying that fans are welcome. At the eBay Tower, the only way is up. At a height of nine metres, the viewing platform offers spectacular perspectives of the iconic racetrack in the German state of Baden-Württemberg.
Anyone who fancies slipping into the role of racing driver at the Hockenheimring can try their hand, free of charge, with the eSports simulators in the ADAC Hospitality. Awaiting fans there are several simulators with the RaceRoom simulation that is also used in the ADAC GT Masters eSports Championship powered by EnBW mobility+. Spectators can also get their favourite drivers to sign an autograph during the Meet the Drivers session, from 11:50 on Saturday in the ADAC Hospitality.
One port of call for ADAC members in the paddock is the ADAC Vorteilswelt Lounge. Here, club members can receive free coffee from Vorteilswelt partner Eni. They can also charge their mobile phones and surf the Internet with free Wi-Fi, or find out more about the diverse offerings of the ADAC Vorteilswelt.
A must for fans: the open pit lane
The pit walks (11:10 and 17:45 on Saturday, and 10:50 on Sunday), offer fans access to the pit lane, from where they can watch the ADAC GT Masters teams as they prepare their super sports cars for the races. From 20:00 on Saturday evening, the online show “PS on Air – The Ravenol ADAC GT Masters Talk” will be broadcast from the open pit lane. Visitors are welcome to watch the live broadcast.
