Nürburgring Grand-Prix-Strecke


The Nürburgring’s GP-Strecke (Grosser Preis Strecke) was constructed on the former site of the pit complex of the Nürburgring’s Nordschliefe and Südschleife in 1982-83. Originally a 12 turn, 4.556km (2.832 mile) circuit, the GP-Strecke was revamped in 2002 with the replacement of the Castrol Chicane by the Haug-Hook right hander and subsequent omega-shaped Mercedes Arena turn, bringing the circuit to its current 16 turn, 5.148k (3.199 mile) specification. Along with the parabolic Dunlop-Kehre, the track’s signature section is the Michael Schumacher S formed by Turns 9-10.
