Auto agenda: 24-hour Nürburgring, Goodwood Festival

Performance cars gather at the legendary Nürburgring
, one of the world's most demanding tracks, this weekend for the German answer to Le Mans. In the UK, car fans will converge on Goodwood from June 30 for the Goodwood Festival of Speed, an event which now offers much more than the hill-climb which made it famous.

24- hour Nürburgring
June 25
Nürburgring, Nürburg, Germany

A gruelling race around a track widely considered to be one of the world's most demanding, the 24-hour Nürburgring is a chance for a few cars to shine - and many more simply to hang on as they race around the 25 kilometer track.

89th Pikes Peak International Hill Climb
