24 HOURS: ONE TEAM, ONE TARGET
The 24-hour Race at the Nürburgring is known as the world’s biggest motorsports event. More than 200,000 fans set up their camp in the Eifel forest and cheer for their heroes in the 210 race cars. Lap after lap. Hour after hour. Day and night. It’s the stage for great stories. Sorrow and joy. Excitement and exertion. Drama and emotions. You will hardly find any event that brings the extremes this close together. In the thick of things, the two cars of last year’s winner BMW with their 70 team members. For months, engineers, mechanics and, of course, the eight pilots have been preparing for the most important race of the year. The filmmakers Tim and Nick Hahne captured it all with their cameras – from the first test drive to the chequered flag coming down – and accompanied the BMW team on the way to achieving its goal: winning the 24-hour Race.
ADRENALIN – the first feature-length documentary about the touring car history of BMW.
The film looks back on 50 years of touring car racing with the Bavarian brand, in-depth with never before seen footage. The story begins in the 60s, where the cars have been prepared on the hayfield and the drivers were sliding over the Nürburgring or the Eau Rouge in Spa until the flies were sticking on the side windows of their cars. The founding of the M GmbH at the beginning of the 70s. The M1 with the legendary ProCar races during the Grand Prix weekends. The success story of the M3. And the glory days of the DTM with wheel to wheel racing at its best. ADRENALIN lets you relive the history. Alex Zanardi’s miracle victories in the World Touring Car Championship after his terrible accident, where he lost his legs. BMW’s sensational comeback into DTM with that unexpected win of the championship title. The film illustrates BMW’s touring car highlights from five decades with stars and strategists narrating from the cockpit’s perspective. From Hubert Hahne and Striezel Stuck to Bruno Spengler. From Jochen Neerpasch and Charly Lamm to Jens Marquardt.
NO LIMITS: IMPOSSIBLE IS JUST A WORD
Alex Zanardi, the main figure in NO LIMITS may have lost his legs, but not his spirit. After his almost fatal crash in 2001, he fights his way back to world-class racing. Not only that: He discovers his love for the handbike and becomes a Paralympic gold medal winner. The documentary features this true legend and his fellow teammates Timo Glock and Bruno Spengler on their new mission: the 24 Hours of Spa.
