Subscribe to our newsletter! Yas Marina Circuit Formula 1 Paddock Club Baku City Circuit Since its opening in , the track has been used by the public for the so-called Touristenfahrten , i.
It is opened every day of the week, except when races take place. The track may be closed for weeks during the winter months, depending on weather conditions and maintenance work.
Passing on the right is prohibited, and some sections have speed limits; the normal traffic rules StVO in German apply also here. The Nürburgring is a popular attraction for many driving enthusiasts and riders from all over the world, partly because of its history and the challenge it provides.
The lack of oncoming traffic and intersections sets it apart from regular roads, and the absence of a blanket speed limit is a further attraction.
Normal ticket buyers on tourist days cannot quite complete a full lap of the On busier days, a mobile ticket barrier is installed on the main straight in order to reduce the length of queues at the fixed barriers.
This is open to all ticket holders. On rare occasions, it is possible to drive both the Nordschleife and the Grand Prix circuit combined.
Drivers interested in lap times often time themselves from the first bridge after the barriers to the last gantry aka Bridge-to-Gantry or BTG time before the exit.
Normal, non-racing, non-timed driving accidents might be covered by driver's insurance, but it is increasingly common for UK insurers especially to insert exclusion clauses that mean drivers and riders on the Nürburgring only have third-party coverage  or are not covered at all.
Drivers who have crashed into the barriers, suffered mechanical failure or been otherwise required to be towed off track during Touristenfahrten sessions are referred to as having joined the "Bongard Club".
This nickname is derived from the name of the company which operates the large yellow recovery flatbed trucks which ferry those unfortunate drivers and their vehicles to the nearest exit.
Additionally, those found responsible for damage to the track or safety barriers are required to pay for repairs, along with the time and cost associated with personnel and equipment to address those damages, making any accident or breakdown a potentially expensive incident.
Because it is technically operated as a public toll road, failing to report an accident or instance where track surfaces are affected is considered unlawfully leaving the scene of an accident.
One of the original purposes of the Nordschleife was as a test track for auto manufacturers, and its demanding layout had been traditionally used as a proving ground.
Weekdays are often booked for so-called Industriefahrten for auto makers and the media. With the advent of the Internet, awareness of the Nordschleife has risen in Germany and abroad, in addition to publicity in print media.
In , Porsche reported that their new GT3 had lapped the Nürburgring in under eight minutes, and in subsequent years, manufacturers from overseas also showed up to test cars.
Some high-performance models are promoted with videotaped laps published on the web, and the claimed lap times are generating discussion.
Few of these supercars are actually entered in racing where the claims could be backed up. In addition, during series 17 summer of Top Gear, James May was very critical of the ride quality of cars whose development processes included testing on the Nordschleife , saying that cars which were tested at Nordschleife got ruined.
Other pastimes are hosted at the Nürburgring, such as the Rock am Ring , Germany's biggest rock music festival, attracting close to , rock fans each year since In , new commercial areas opened, including a hotel and shopping mall.
This meant there was to be a new owner in , unencumbered by the debts of the previous operation, with the circuit expected to return to profitability.
Düsseldorf -based Capricorn Development was the buyer. The company was to take full ownership of the Nürburgring on January 1, In May , the Nürburgring was set to hold the first Grüne Hölle Rock festival as a replacement for the Rock am Ring festival,  but the project did not take place.
The Nordschleife was formerly known for its abundance of sharp crests, causing fast-moving, firmly-sprung racing cars to jump clear off the track surface at many locations.
Although by no means the most fearsome, Flugplatz is perhaps the most aptly although coincidentally named and widely remembered.
The name of this part of the track comes from a small airfield, which in the early years was located close to the track in this area.
The track features a very short straight that climbs sharply uphill for a short time, then suddenly drops slightly downhill, and this is immediately followed by two very fast right-hand kinks.
Manfred Winkelhock flipped his March Formula Two car at the same corner in The Flugplatz is one of the most important parts of the Nürburgring because after the two very fast right handers comes what is possibly the fastest part of the track: Drivers are flat out for some time here.
The Fuchsröhre is soon after the very fast downhill section succeeding the Flugplatz. After negotiating a long right hand corner called Aremberg which is after Schwedenkreuz the road goes slightly uphill, under a bridge and then it plunges downhill, and the road switches back left and right and finding a point of reference for the racing line is difficult.
This whole sequence is flat out and then, the road climbs sharply uphill. The road then turns left and levels out at the same time; this is one of the many jumps of the Nürburgring where the car goes airborne.
This leads to the Adenauer Forst forest turns. The Fuchsröhre is one of the fastest and most dangerous parts of the Nürburgring because of the extremely high speeds in such a tight and confined place; this part of the Nürburgring goes right through a forest and there is only about 7—8 feet of grass separating the track from Armco barrier, and beyond the barriers is a wall of trees.
Perhaps the most notorious corner on the long circuit, Bergwerk has been responsible for some serious and sometimes fatal accidents.
The fast kink was also the scene of Niki Lauda 's infamous fiery accident during the German Grand Prix. This left kink is often referred to as the Lauda Links Lauda left.
Although being one of the slower corners on the Nordschleife , the Karussell is perhaps its most famous and one of its most iconic- it is one of two berm -style, banked corners on the track.
Soon after the driver has negotiated the long uphill section after Bergwerk and gone through a section called Klostertal Monastery Valley , the driver turns right through a long hairpin, past an abandoned section called Steilstrecke Steep Route and then goes up another hill towards the Karrusell.
The entrance to the corner is blind, although Juan Manuel Fangio is reputed to have advised a young driver to "aim for the tallest tree," a feature that was also built into the rendering of the circuit in the Gran Turismo 4 and Grand Prix Legends video games.
Once the driver has reached the top of the hill, the road then becomes sharply banked on one side and level on the other- this banking drops off, rather than climbing up like most bankings on circuits.
The sharply banked side has a concrete surface, and there is a foot-wide tarmac surface on the bottom of the banking for cars to get extra grip through the very rough concrete banking.
Cars drop into the concrete banking, and keep the car in the corner which is degrees, much like a hairpin bend until the road levels out and the concrete surface becomes tarmac again.
This corner is very hard on the driver's wrists and hands because of the prolonged bumpy cornering the driver must do while in the Karrusell.
Usually cars come out of the top of the end of the banking to hit the apex that comes right after the end of the Karrusell.
The combination of a recognisable corner, slow-moving cars, and the variation in viewing angle as cars rotate around the banking, means that this is one of the circuit's most popular locations for photographers.
It is named after German pre-WWII racing driver Rudolf Caracciola , who reportedly made the corner his own by hooking the inside tires into a drainage ditch to help his car "hug" the curve.
As more concrete was uncovered and more competitors copied him, the trend took hold. At a later reconstruction, the corner was remade with real concrete banking, as it remains to this day.
A favourite spectator vantage point, the Brünnchen section is composed of two right-hand corners and a very short straight. The first corner goes sharply downhill and the next, after the very short downhill straight, goes uphill slightly.
This is a section of the track where on public days, accidents happen particularly at the blind uphill right-hand corner. Like almost every corner at the Nürburgring, both right-handers are blind.
The short straight used to have a steep and sudden drop-off that caused cars to take off and a bridge that went over a pathway; these were taken out and smoothed over when the circuit was rebuilt in and The Pflanzgarten , which is soon after the Brünnchen , is one of the fastest, trickiest and most difficult sections of the Nürburgring.
It is full of jumps, including two huge ones, one of which is called Sprunghügel Hill Jump. This very complex section is unique in that it is made up of two different sections; getting the entire Pflanzgarten right is crucial to a good lap time around the Nürburgring.
Pflanzgarten 1 is made up of a slightly banked, downhill left hander which then suddenly switches back left, then right. Then immediately, giving the driver nearly no time to react knowledge of this section is key the road drops away twice: Then, immediately after the road levels out very shortly after the jump and the car touches the ground again, the road immediately and suddenly goes right very quickly and then right again; this is what makes up the end of the first Pflanzgarten - a very fast multiple apex sequence of right hand corners.
The road then goes slightly uphill and then through another jump; the road suddenly drops away and levels out and at the same time, the road turns through a flat-out left hander.
Then, the road drops away again very suddenly, which is the second huge jump of the Pflanzgarten known as the Sprunghügel.
The road then goes downhill then quickly levels out, then it goes through a flat-out right hander and this starts the Stefan Bellof S named as such because Bellof crashed a Porsche there during the Nurburgring km , which was known as Pflanzgarten 2 prior to The Stefan Bellof S is very tricky because the road quickly switches back left and right—a car is going so fast through here that it is like walking on a tightrope.
It is very difficult to find the racing line here because the curves come up so quickly, so it is hard to find any point of reference.
Then, after a jump at the end of the switchback section, it goes through a flat-out, top gear right hander and into a short straight that leads into two very fast curves called the Schwalbenschwanz Swallow's Tail.
The room for error on every part of the consistently high-speed Pflanzgarten and the Stefan Bellof S is virtually non-existent much like the entire track itself.
The road and the surface of the Pflanzgarten and the Stefan Bellof S moves around unpredictably; knowledge of this section is key to getting through cleanly.
The Schwalbenschwanz is a sequence of very fast sweepers located after the Stefan Bellof S. After a short straight, there is a very fast right hand sweeper that progressively goes uphill, and this leads into a blind left-hander that is a bit slower.
The apex is completely blind, and the corner then changes gradient a bit; it goes up then down, which leads into a short straight that ends at the Kleines Karussell.
Originally, this part had a bridge that went over a stream and was very bumpy; this bridge was taken out and replaced with a culvert large industrial pipe so that the road could be smoothed over.
The Kleines Karussell is similar to its bigger brother, except that it is a 90 degree corner instead of degrees, and is faster and slightly less banked.
Once this part of the track is dealt with, the drivers are near the end of the lap; with two more corners to negotiate before the 2.
Lap times recorded on the Nürburgring Nordschleife are published by several manufacturers. They are published and discussed in print media, and online.
