    5. New 24H of Nurburgring & ADAC App for iPhone, iPad and Android



      You'd think with the seemingly limitless number of television channels and stations on Satellite Radio that car enthusiasts looking for coverage of series in other markets like Europe and Japan would have no problem monitoring most races much less iconic ones like the 24 Hours of Nurburgring.
