Our colleagues from Germany prepared a nice agenda beginning on Saturday evening in a Hotel near to the race track of the Nürburgring 6 hours. In front of the hotel, a nice Bahco truck was waiting for them. Unfortunately that one wasn’t ready to compete on Sunday, a bit too slow.
After a ice-breaking dinner and a good sleep, everyone was ready to join the race track and feel the atmosphere of a main race of the world endurance championship. All the group was invited into the Le Mans Spirit Club where they could spend the day to relax and enjoy the race
The nice VIP center is situated right above the pits and just in front of the start lane.
Between 12h and 13h, everyone had the chance to participate to the grid walk where you can meet drivers and get closed to the cars. This is always a nice moment where you feel pressure getting higher. It is also nice to see “for real” those highly performing cars.
Then it was time to go back to the hospitality center to see the race starting and support our team Signatech-Alpine. During the whole race, Alpine organized some pit visits where we can be in the heart of the team. This is the way to discover our products in action and see how useful our partnership is to the team. Even if sometimes our especially Alpine customized tool trolleys are not used correctly!
But finally after an intense race, we had the pleasure to see that Alpine-Signatech won the 2016 edition of the 6 hours of Nürburgring. We were inside the paddock to celebrate the victory with them.
After the nice experience in Le Mans, the Nürburgring event was a great success for our racing team but also for our customers who had nice smiles after the day!
Let’s wait now for the next races of Alpine to hopefully celebrate new victories. Next race is the 6 hours of Mexico, the 3rd of September.
