The most brutal and longest race track on earth.
I can attest to it´s difficulty having done a few rounds on this track on sundays in the past. If you don´t know what you´re doing you´ll be off-track heading for the rails in no time.
Longest circuit track, not longest race track, just of the top my head the Ilse of Man race is about 37 km so 12-15 km longer than the Nurburgring.
I am soooo jealous.
People keep making the same mistake, when they run wide they try to yank it back onto the road instead of just slowing down and running it out.

Obviously, the recovery method they are employing is not working very well.
Yanking the wheel to get back on the tarmac verses running out into the rough and slowing down....hmm, which is better?
I'm not sure what the conceptual barrier is here, but you managed to kill the thread.
Congrats, you win.
(there is a ex-F1 track incorporated into the whole track) but not in green hell.
Yeah but this is the Nürburgring, this thread is about this track, there isn´t much "rough" to slow you down, the rail will do that for you here.
I think it was after Nicky Lauda´s fire crash that they built the F1 track that we know today (with slight changes). The track is not used anymore for F1, though.
Yes there are some fine details to this track. If I go full throttle in fuchsröhre it´s hard to brake (or better say, lift the foot from the gas pedal over to the brake) because of the G´s you´re pulling.
you must have a had a few times where time slowed down for you,
you are so focused on the situation at hand that times seems to slow enough for you react and get you out of the possible upcoming crash.
