Our friend Uwe Rheinard got in touch to tell us about the recent 24h race at the Motodrom Andernach. Being in its 12th year the challenging around the clock race once again attracted 25 teams with a total of 175 racers from Austria, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Germany to race their Porsche-bodied Tamiya TT-01E kits at the legendary Motodrom, home of World Champion Marc Rheinard and host of the ETS season final. According to the rules each team as to build the chassis on Saturday morning using only a minimum of option parts and Porsche GT3 body shells. For the second year in a row Speed Power sponsored LiFe hardcase battery packs with a capacity of 4200mAh that every team had to use. After 24 hours, 3559 laps and a total distance of around 750km the five time winners “Wild 13” claimed the top spot on the podium using 5 sets of tyres but not a single spare part, followed by the team from the Netherlands with 22 laps less.
