Raab live at Schalke: "The Grand TV total Stock Car Crash Challenge 2006" on ProSieben

The motor sports athlete is putting his foot down again: namely at the "The Grand TV total Stock Car Crash Challenge 2006" in the VELTINS Arena in Gelsenkirchen. Joey Kelly, Christina Surrer, Georg from Tokio Hotel, Schalke coach Mirko Slomka, Gangster Rapper Bushido and Marc Terenzi are joining him. With musical performances by Motörhead, Tarkan and Tokio Hotel – on October 7, 2006 at 8:15 p.m. LIVE on ProSieben.

Pounding engines, smoking tires and breathtaking duels – Stefan Raab is hosting the toughest celebrity car race of the year: at the VELTINS Arena in Gelsenkirchen, the 2005 Crash Champion will be flooring the pedal again. Last year, Stefan Raab wiped the floor with the competition in the Royal Class of 3000 cc and over and secured himself the Golden Winner’s Garland. Will he be good enough to make it to the winner’s podium again at the "The Grand TV total Stock Car Crash Challenge 2006"?

Celebrity athletes will be lining up at the start in the three engine classes, 3000, 1900 and 1500 cc. The speed freaks include experience crasher Elton, the only member of Tokio Hotel with a driver’s license – Georg Moritz Hagen Listing – the musical hobby racing driver Smudo, stock car novice Marc Terenzi, motor sports rowdy Axel Stein, "taff" presenter Stefan Gödde, bend specialist Johanna Klum, all-round sportsman Joey Kelly, boxing professional Felix Sturm, professional racing driver Christina Surer, Schalke coach Mirko Slomka, Gangster Rapper Bushido and TV judge Alexander Hold.

The musical highlights are provided by the vintage rockers of Motörhead with "Be My Baby", the young stars of Tokio Hotel with "Der letzte Tag" and Tarkan with "Start the Fire".

Whatever the law forbids on the streets is actually most welcome at the greatest live TV show of the year in front of 50,000 motor smash fans at the VELTINS Arena in Gelsenkirchen: only those willing to shove, speed and knock out of the way stand any chance of being showered in champagne after the race. And we all know that you have to break eggs to make an omelet: last year, "taff" presenter Stefan Gödde broke his lower arm whilst colliding with the steering wheel, 9Live presenter Alida-Nadine Lauenstein (nee Kurras) ended up with second-degree whiplash and TV presenter Jana Ina even paid a visit to the ER after suffering severe spinal trauma. Comedian Oliver Pocher escaped with a scare: although his racing car went up in flames, the high-speed crash driver escaped without injury.

On Friday, the crash drivers qualified during the qualifying round at the VELTINS Arena. Marc Terenzi ("You Complete My Soul") and Yvonne Catterfeld ("Erinner mich, Dich zu vergessen") provided the musical backdrop for the drivers in the "The Grand TV total Stock Car Crash Challenge 2006 – The Qualifying" at 10:15 p.m. live on ProSieben with the respective latest singles.

Tickets for fans of pounding engines, smoking tires and breathtaking duels are still available online at www.tvtotal.de and www.veltins-arena.de or by phone on Tel. 01805 / 150 810.
