VLN Endurance Racing Championship Nürburgring (VLN from 2020 changed its name to "Nürburgring Langstrecken-Serie", but same same) is a race series that consists of a total of 9 – 10 races every year, held on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. VLN was founded in 1977 and has a long standing racing history. Each race takes 4 hours, except for a one of the races that is a 6h race.
Participants of VLN races range from amateurs in small (almost) road legal cars with rollcages and harnesses to professional factory teams racing Group GT3 cars. The VLN series is closely associated with the 24 H Nürburgring, as it has similar rules (mostly), and mainly the same participants. The 24h race is not part of the VLN championship, though.
Each VLN race is held as a "one-day event" on Saturdays only, in order to limit costs. The mandatory drivers briefing is usually at 7:45 (sometimes it also takes place Friday evening), practice is from 8:30 to 10:00, and the race starts at 12:00.
Usually around 140-180 cars participate in a VLN race. It sounds like a lot, but taken the length of the track (app. 25 km) into consideration it is not that bad at all.
In order to drive the VLN you need a Permit Nordschleife.
