This was a great study. A sneaky little corner for sure. Watching the various suspension types unload on the subtle elevation drop at this corners exit, and the ensuing consequences was interesting. A good testimonial for early entrance braking and controlled accelleration after the apex. A couple of those guys are lucky to be alive!oldraceral said:I wonder what time of day that was. Must have been very early. Here's another old clip.
Apparently, seat belts and helmets are optional.

thanks, Ebi! I've seen the Nürburgring referred to many times, but never knew anything about it, other than that it's a race course. Time to hit Google and Wikipedia to satisfy my curiosity...ebi said:...hehehe, no. That's the Nürburgring. A famous german
24h raceway! Also known as "green hell".
2006 i could watch the 24h event here in germany on TV
and at the same time the LeMans 24h via internet. I hope
they do it the same this year!! Two 24h races on two screens
at the same time. I love it!!!!
Kind regards, Ebi

on another note, Ebi, your convertible '62 Impala on the Customs thread is OUTSTANDING. i think my next project has to be to cut the roof off one of mine. I've done a '59, but I never got around to the '62...
On a sort of a weird aside to this thread. It is kind of strange to race in a game like GT4 at the Ring and then later watch actual footage filmed at the track...ebi said:Hi Rick,
you will find a lot of stuff!! The Nürburgring is a legendary track
here in Germany. Especially for fans of 24h cars it's an eldorado!!
Very very hard to drive as you already could see...
