Nürburgring Eifel Klassik
The "Ring" in the lovely "Eifel" mountains was constructed and finished
in June 1927. It was Germanys first racetrack and had an original
length of 28.265 km (Nordschleife 22.810 km + Südschleife 7.747
km, Start- und Zielschleife 2.238 km). The racetrack has 88 left and 84
right turns. Only if you have driven on the "Grüne Hölle"
(green hell) yourself you can feel the fascination of this unique
racetrack in the world.
Jackie Stewart gave the Nurburgring it's famous name
"the green hell" Green because of the forests surrounding the track and
hell due to the demanding track and the special challenge for every
Rudolf Caracciola (1901 - 1959) known as
"Ringmeister", for his mastery of Nurburgring. He was also especially
adept when the conditions turned to rain. His career spanned four
decades and many of his old racing trophies are on display at the
334 m above sea level at the bridge near "Breidscheid"
626 m at the "Hohe Acht"
Difference in altitude:
17% before "Flugplatz"
