Endurance races attract a special kind of motorsports fan, and as far as we can tell, they're the same all over the world: to enjoy 12 or 24 hours of racing they'll camp out for four or five days, they have no problem parking expensive cars in the mud - or sleeping in it, they come prepared to endure anything, sometimes the party doesn't stop even after the course has closed on Sunday evening and you've never seen so much grilling in your life.

TouriClips, the same outfit that brought us video of the Edo Competition ZXX and Maserati MC12 Corsa at the Nürburgring, was at last weekend's Nürburgring 24-Hour race and put together a video overview of the weekend. It's long, but it covers everything from the dry racing in the day to wet racing at night, to the fans and parking areas, the pits, the grandstands, the ambulance trying to stay out of the way of racers and the Jeep Cherokee towing away a broken car. It's also got the following day of action and the podium that the winning cars get put on.

So settle in and enjoy the video below.

      It would be awesome if Forza has an 12 or 24 hours Endurance Race.

      "you've never seen so much grilling in your life" I'll admit I have not attended a 12- or 24-hour endurance race, but after watching the video and attending several NCAA and NFL football games, I find it impossible to believe there is more grilling at these races.

      Looks like a hell of an awesome way to spend a week.

      I\'ve driven the 24 hours of Daytona. Going thru turn 3 and 4 and smelling burgers in the car makes it quite difficult to concentrate. But it\'s cool.

      No kidding. Just like if I was there... people wandering into my shot etc. Hate that. Whenever I go to Cars and Coffee or Supercar Sunday, as soon as I hold up my camera to take a shot people start showing up and walking into my shot or casting shadows on the cars. Never fails.

      What is that app they flash? Specific to the ring? Would love to have something like this when I go to the Rolex series in Indy that's coming up!

        It's called GPSauge! Not sure whether it's available in the US though!
