Endurance races have a long tradition in Germany. As early as 1904, the first long-distance competition, the Gordon Bennett Race, took place in the Taunus town of Bad Homburg. A distance of 512 kilometres was covered on closed-off roads, for which the winner needed just under six hours.


Endurance races for GTs touring cars up to 1981, racing cars built up to 1971 and Group A cars up to 1985

With the construction of the Nürburgring and the Hockenheimring, more and more races were moved from public roads to permanent race tracks. Endurance races of 300, 500 or 1000 kilometres, three, four or even 72 hours found more and more followers. Car manufacturers liked to participate in the events to demonstrate the durability of their models.
