Track walk around Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg - Grand Prix on

Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg

One of Europe’s premier racing circuits, the heritage of the Hockenheimring takes back to 1932, when it was called “Dreieckskurs” (or “triangle course”). The track has undergone multiple redesigns since then, most recently in 2002, when a dramatically shortened new layout eliminated the long straightaways through the forest that produced exciting racing, but were taxing on engines and difficult for fans to see. Although the redesign was divisive among drivers and teams who welcomed the changes and those who missed the challenges of the old track, it kept the German Grand Prix at the track for 2002 and beyond.
