With 73 curves, 290 meters of difference in altitude and a length of 20.382 kilometers, it is the most famous, challenging and longest racetrack in the world: the Nordschleife, the oldest part of the Nürburgring. The British motor racing legend Jackie Stewart once described the course through the Eifel forests as “Green Hell” – a term that is still present today. Its construction began in 1925 with the participation of more than 2,000 workers from the region. After two years of construction, the racetrack was officially opened during the “Eifel race” on 18 and 19 June 1927. The winner was Rudolf Caracciola, one of the most successful racing drivers before the Second World War. Since its inauguration, the Nordschleife has gradually been made safer, but has remained unchanged in its original form, with the exception of the conversion of the southern loop to the current Grand Prix track. Every year sports drivers from all over the world come to the Eifel to experience the track, whose highlights undoubtedly are the VLN long-distance championship and the annual 24-hour race. If you want to discover this legendary racetrack, you should not miss the Trackday Nordschleife with the Pistenclub.
