2+4=24 | Racing for 24 hours on 2 and 4 wheels | Autocar

Every year, the Nordschleife hosts the Nürburgring 24 Hours. Imagine (the better known) Le Mans 24 Hours with jumps, blind bends and 100-ft trees for secondary crash barriers. It is more rally stage than race track and, for the 24 Hours, rammed full of cars and drivers of varied capabilities. “It is so far from the pits we carry cash for a cab,” states former F1 driver and now Honda racer Tiago Monteiro. “It is probably the most challenging race on earth.”
If you think Monteiro and the four-wheeled gladiators who take on each other round the Green Hell are tough, meet Australian Josh Hook. He is a 24 hour racer too. Except he races on 2 wheels. In this time of Covid, 2020’s only major 24 hour bike race was at Le Mans in August. Hook, 27, entered despite having two broken bones in his right foot – sustained in a crash less than a day before the race began. To pitch Hook and Monteiro against each other in reality is impossible. But in the world of film comparisons are possible. Former WRC, Dakar and F1 presenter Jeremy Hart has made a documentary called 2+4=24. He follows Josh and Tiago to the edges of hell and back.
