After Austria’s first and only previous Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) victory in 1966, Conchita Wurst succeeded in bringing the ESC 2015 from Copenhagen to Vienna. The 60th anniversary of the Song Contest is truly historic in many ways: Geographical boundaries have been broken with the unprecedented inclusion of Australia into the 2015 Eurovision family and the motto “Building Bridges” aimed at making connections across national borders, across cultures and indeed across decades celebrating tolerance and inclusion while promoting respect and tolerance.
Every year on a weekend in May over 150 cars will race the ADAC Zurich 24h of Nürburgring on the combined Nordschleife and Grand Prix track. Cars range from the SP9 GT3 class (from which the winner is expected), to a humble Golf GTI and an Opel Manta. The top cars the past couple of years have been Porsche 911 variants, the Audi R8, Mercedes SLS, and BMW Z4. New this year was the Bentley Continental, with two cars from Bentley Motorsport. Notably absent is the McLaren 12c, which qualified well last year but failed to finish due to reliability and accidents this year.
