This is the mother of all racing tracks, a 13 mile track of wicked blind twists and turns, wild changes of elevation and serious concentration. Jackie Stewart wisely described the Nordschleife (North Loop) as the ‘Green Hell’; it is clear why for those with experience. Nestled in the Eifel mountain range, originally built in the 1920s and serially rebuilt, ‘the Ring’ is the fiercest and most lauded of all racing tracks the world over. It really is essential to study and even memorise the track well before even reaching the track. This is the ultimate challenge for all ‘walk-the-talk’ enthusiasts.
