The world best cars are passing by screaming loud and disappear hind the turn. Forest and mountains are around you. You feel the symphony of clutch, brakes, exhaust smells. Lots of people are grilling and chilling on the couches and chairs, some of them in Jacuzzi 🙂 This is a 24 Hours Race. This is Nurburgring.
Its well known that Nurburgring Nordschleife is one of the most dangerous, long and demanding race track of the world. But what is unique about this place is that everybody having a driving license can drive the track on his/her or rental car. Sometimes just after the professional competition like DTM or 24 Hours Race. This place created a whole community of petrolheads loving the Ring. You can easily speak here with a lowered VW driver or with a wealthy Porsche owner because they came here to share their passion with others.
Unfortunately, there is another side of the medal. These are the crashes that happed quite often during the Touristic drives. Government tried to close the track multiple times but the community was stronger and the track is still open.
