Steeped in over 95 years of history, the chapters that tell the stories of Nürburgring, otherwise known as 'The Ring', include tales of natural beauty, engineering prowess and legends of motorsport. Not bad for a track in a small town in the west of Germany!
Carved in the woodland of the Eifel mountains, very few racetracks are situated in settings of such natural beauty as Nürburgring. While racing on one of the most famous tracks in the world with TrackDays.co.uk, what better way to catch a glimpse of the Rhine Valley?
Prior to the Nürburgring being built in 1925, German manufacturers did not have a test track which could adequately test their cars in various conditions, speeds, and inclines. So, in true German fashion, the Nürburgring was actually built so they could exhibit their dominance in automotive engineering.
Once built, firms could test their cars on stretches of straight, sloped corners, U-shaped bends, and elevation changes of 1,000 feet. In fact, such is the varied nature of The Ring, you could experience all four seasons of weather in one lap with TrackDays.co.uk.
As motorsport became more popular in the mid to late 20th century, the track was simplified to host race events - but that's not to say it's no longer a challenge! By putting your pedal to the metal on the 13-mile lap at Nürburgring, you too can test your vehicle or race to the finish line, positioning yourself in hot pursuit of motorsport icons from yesteryear.
A grid row of Formula 1 legends from Sir Jackie Stewart and Stirling Moss to Alberto Ascari and Juan Manuel Fangio have graced the tarmac of Nürburgring in some of the most high-profile events in the history of motorsport.
And not to worry, you do not need an F1 or supercar to take to the track at Nürburgring. Every year, millions of petrol heads from around the world visit the track to drive everything from motorcycles, motorhomes, tour buses, and cars with trailers, meaning that for much of the year, The Ring really is the wild, wild west of racetracks.
So, whether you drive a Racing Car or a busted old hatchback, the circuit at Nürburgring remains a unique experience with TrackDays.co.uk, not to be missed by anyone.
