Today the 24 Hours of N?rburgring also known as the 41. ADAC Zurich 24h-Rennen finished with the Black Falcon Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 of Bernd Schneider, Jeroen Bleekemolen, Sean Edwards & Nicki Thiim winning ahead of the chasing Porsches, Audis, BMWs and Astons. It was the first time a Mercedes-Benz has one the race outright.
This year was notable for relentless rain that delayed the race over nine hours. Eventually the 180 cars got back underway by 9am. Many hopes were on the sole Aston Martin GT3 which qualified second, but couldn't manage in the rain.
