90 years of the Nürburgring are a reason to celebrate - and a good reason for an updated new edition of this title from 2007.
The Nürburgring, inaugurated in 1927 as a race and test track at the foot of the Nürburg is the longest permanent race track in the world. And it is more than that: a brand, an institution, a veritable myth and a benchmark for chassis engineers of all manufacturers. The best time of a car on the Nordschleife is considered an objective quality standard. Motorsport enthusiasts from all over the world are visit the Ring again and again. Over nine decades the track was the scenery for countless triumphs, exciting duels and dramatic and tragic moments. This richly illustrated book describes how the race track became an important economic factor in the barren and remote region, names the most important motorsport milestones and describes the history of the race track from its beginnings as a job creation measure right to the turbulent and scandalous privatisation in the recent past.
