The Nurburgring is a motorsport complex of daunting proportions. In modern times you are more likely to watch a race at the Nurburgring GP Track, however, the action is really best caught on the much longer old “North loop” track.
Built in the 1920’s, the Nordschleife has earned its reputation as “The Green Hell”. When it was first built, the track had three configurations; the 28.265 km (17.563 mi)-long Gesamtstrecke (“Whole Course”), the 22.810 km (14.173 mi) Nordschleife (“North Loop”), and the 7.747 km (4.814 mi) Südschleife (“South Loop”).
Nowadays, the Nordschleife is all that remains of the three configurations. It is open to the public for “Touristenfahrten” which means that just about anyone can turn up. The question is, if you had the choice, which one would you choose to lap the ‘Ring in? Let us know in the comments below!
