The Nürburgring race track

The Nürburgring in the Eifel is a legendary race track in the Eifel region of Germany. It is a modern Grand Prix test track as well as a venue for a variety of motorsport events, including the Nürburgring 24-hour race. The Nürburgring is considered one of the most difficult and demanding tracks in the world, with a combination of tight and technical sections as well as high-speed straights such as the Döttinger Höhe.

It looks back on a long and eventful history and has been the scene of many legendary races and moments in motorsport. One of those moments was in 1976, when Austrian driver Niki Lauda suffered a near-fatal accident on the track during the German Grand Prix. Despite the severity of his injuries, Lauda made a remarkable recovery and returned to racing just six weeks later, cementing his status as a true motorsport hero.

The Nürburgring has two main circuits – the modern Grand Prix circuit and the “Nordschleife”. With its 73 curves and a length of over 20 kilometers, it is considered the real test of the circuit. The Nordschleife is also famous for its rough surface and constantly changing weather conditions, which make it a real test for man and machine. The Grand Prix circuit, on the other hand, is a more modern and smoother track on which today’s Grand Prix races are held.

Due to its difficult and demanding layout, the Nürburgring is also known as the “Green Hell” and is a popular destination for racing enthusiasts and tourists alike.

One of the highlights of the Nürburgring race track is the annual 24-hour race, which attracts participants from all over the world. This grueling race puts both the drivers and the cars to the test as they race non-stop around the Nordschleife for 24 hours. The race is won by the team that completes the most laps in the allotted time, and is a true test of endurance and speed.

The Nürburgring is also a popular test track for many car manufacturers, as the challenging track layout provides a realistic simulation of a car’s performance and durability. The many different sections of the track, including the steep incline of the Döttinger Höhe and the tight curves of the Nordschleife, put vehicles to the test and provide valuable data for engineers and designers.

In addition to its use as a race track, the Nürburgring is also a popular tourist destination. The track offers a variety of activities for visitors, including all-day tours of the Nordschleife, the opportunity to drive your own car around the track, and even a roller coaster that offers visitors a thrilling experience.

In summary, the Nürburgring is a true icon of motorsports and is considered by many to be the ultimate test of a driver’s skill and a car’s performance. The combination of a challenging layout, demanding conditions and rich history make the Nürburgring a must-see for anyone interested in racing and motorsports!
