24h Nürburgring 2022: Last bite of the Viper

Rolling thunder over the Nürburgring? It doesn’t have to be a storm. Perhaps the Dodge Viper SRT 10 Competition Coupé GT3 from the Albrecht Motorsport team will do its laps. In 2009, owner Manfred Sattler’s powerhouse completed its first 24-hour race on the Ring. The car has been used by Bernd Albrecht and Team Mintgen since 2017.
The Viper is now retired. This year’s Eifelhatz is the last outing of the US sports car in a race under FIA sovereignty. “It’s difficult to find spare parts for a 2008 racing car. If we have seals sent from Australia or have to get a rear window made to order, we have reached the limits of what is feasible,” says Bernd Albrecht.

It’s not just the car that makes Albrecht’s commitment special. The racing driver and team boss from Hirrlingen has always been involved in motorsport for social projects. His entire team works on a voluntary basis. In 2022, too, donations will be collected for the Fly&Help campaign to build schools in developing countries.

In the run-up to the 2022 event, the group collected funds for schools in Zooti and Atchame in Togo. During the race, too, there will be ongoing campaigns on social networks, at the Adenauer Racing Day and in the paddock to give children in developing countries access to education.
