Sharing the ride with Frank Biela, Marco Werner and Pierre Kaffer, Baumgartner will help the team compete at the demanding German circuit affectionately referred to as “The Green Hell.”
The Nurburgring 24 Hours is an annual endurance race designed to appeal to amateur and professional racecar drivers. It will run from June 21-22 this year. Baumgartner will attend a press conference Thursday in which more details about his latest endeavor will be released.Felix Baumgartner, Nurburgring, Nurburgring 24 Hours, Sports Cars
