Summary

For those of you who may have spent your life until now caravanning or chasing butterflies: Located in the Eifel mountain range in Eastern Germany is possibly the most famous bit of road in the world; The Nurburgring. Built in 1927, the Ring was designed as a dual-purpose test track and race circuit. When not being used for these purposes, it was made available for public access, a tradition that continues today. The 'ring is quite simply the ultimate driving experience. 13 miles and at least 73 bends add up to what even top racing drivers describe as the most demanding circuit in the world. Jackie Stewart nicknamed it The Green Hell and it used to be the German Grand Prix circuit until it was deemed too dangerous after Niki Lauda's fiery crash in 1976. This circuit is widely considered to be the toughest, most dangerous and most demanding purpose-built race track in the world. So it seems perfectly sensible then that on certain days of the year absolutely anybody can turn up with any kind of road-legal car or motorbike and pay a small fee to have a go.
