If it is used only on the north course or only on the GP course, it may be used by connecting the north course and the GP course.


The history of this course goes back to the 1920s.In Germany, car racing was held on public roads until the middle of 1920, and accidents involving spectators tended to occur, which was dangerous, so the appearance of a racing circuit (closed circuit) that does not use public roads was desired.A member of the Eifel region proposed a dedicated circuit construction plan that incorporates purposes such as race venues, measures against unemployment, utilization as a test course for automobile manufacturers, and attracting tourists, and this is the part that corresponds to the current "north course". It was.Based on the course design by the Eichler Architects, led by architect Gustav Eichler1925Construction started in1927ToCompletionIt has started to be used. →#history

North course

The north course is the longest circuit in the world, and in addition to the varied course layout that utilizes the height difference in the mountains, the elements of weather changes such as showers and heavy fog are added, so it is "the world's most difficult course" Known as "the world's leading driver's circuit".

(Although it was incorporated as one of the purposes for automobile manufacturers to use it as a test course from the beginning of construction)Severe course conditions described belowSometimes it is a "sports car"development ofCalled the "Sacred Place"[1], Automakers around the world are rushing to bring in sports cars (or passenger cars depending on the manufacturer) and develop them.また北コースのラップタイムはAlso, the lap time of the north course issports car,Racing carIt is an index to measure the performance of[2].

The north course has been around for a long timeF1German Grand PrixWas held, but it was changed to the new Nürburgring GP course because it is too dangerous to run F1 because the course is bumpy.1995から1997Two wheelsRoad Race World Championship(WGP) was also held.Endurance race Of24 Hours of NürburgringIs still being held by connecting the GP course and the north course.またAlsoWorld Touring Car Championship(WTCC) also held a sprint race of 2015 heat and 2017 laps from 1 to 3.

North course (Nordschleife)

The nickname of the north course is "Green Hell(Green hell, or just Hell) ”in the late 1960sJackie StewartNamed by.as a feature,

  • There is a height difference of about 300m throughout the course.
  • A wide variety from ultra-high speed to ultra-low speedcornerThere is.
  • There are 172 corners.
  • Many of the corners are blind corners.
  • There is a mortar-shaped hairpin with a bank.
  • If the vehicle does not have downforce due to the wings, there are places to jump.
  • The average speed of the entire course is high.
  • The road surface is rippling and slips like dust.
  • The course width is narrow.
  • Narrow escape zone (not enough deceleration with yellow flag so narrow that Marshall outside the guardrail can hit a stick to warn the roof of a vehicle)

It is known as the longest in the world and one of the most difficult courses in the world, and the overall performance of the vehicle is easily reflected in the time.sports carIt is used as a test course for developing high-performance passenger cars such as.日本の自動車メーカーでもEven Japanese car makersToyota,Nissan,Honda,マ ツ ダ,Subaru,Mitsubishi,Japanese sea bass(Kizashi only) Is used, and most of the well-known automobile manufacturers are conducting test runs here.

It is said that the only thing that cannot be tested here is "only hard braking from 250km / h to 300km / h".

The driver also has a great burden on both physical and mental aspects.Since the course is long and has various variations of corners, it is difficult to remember the course itself, and you have to drive a car at high speed for a long time on a rough road surface with a narrow width.Not only skill but also experience, concentration, courage and physical strength are required, and the driver is exposed to extreme conditions.

In addition to having such harsh characteristics, it is difficult to secure the necessary personnel around the course such as Marshall because the course is long, so as the performance of the car improves, it is no longer used in events such as F1 races. It was.[Note 1][Note 2]

Even now24 Hours of NürburgringThe north course is also used. In the 24-hour race, it is used by connecting the north and GP courses, and the start goal,pitGP course is used.However, the infield section (Mercedes Arena), which was newly established in 2002, was used for the first few years, but now it is used as a shortcut for paddock etc.Another Camion (Track) Races are also being held.

In the wake of the catastrophe that killed spectators during the 2015 race, speed limits were to be enforced in dangerous sections, but in 2016 the course was significantly refurbished and the speed limits were lifted.

Famous corner

Caracciola Karussell (Caracciola Karussell)

Often referred to simply as carousel or carousel.It is one of the slowest corners on the north course, and the inside is a slope (bank) paved with concrete.Originally it was a drain,Rudolf CaracciolaWas used for cornering for the first time, and many drivers began to imitate it, and when it was subsequently repaved, it officially became a sloped corner.The entrance to the corner has poor visibility (so-called blinds),Juan Manuel FangioThe advice of "Aim for the tallest tree" is famous.Since this corner has a slope, it can turn at a certain speed even if it passes through the inside side, but on the other hand, the ground is not horizontal compared to other corners and it becomes tight unevenness (so-called bumpy). The car rubs everywhere, so caution is required.
However, because it is a hairpin curve, the vehicle speed is slow and it is one of the popular locations because you can take pictures from various angles.
Since 2006, the name of Caracciola has been officially added.

Bergwerk (Mine)

The most notorious corner with many serious accidents.The accident at the right corner after a long straight line, and the accident at Niki Lauda at the previous left highway corner.

Fluke Platts (Airfield)

Once nearbyAirfieldThe corner that came to be called by that name because there was.One of the most famous jump spots on the Nürburgring.OrManfred WinkelhockAccident happened.If you make a mistake in operating the steering wheel here, if you do not do it well, you will jump out of the course and be sucked into the depths of the forest, so discovery is often delayed (the same phenomenon occurs in Fuchsrohre).

Vipperman (Wippermann) - Brünchen (Brunnchenn) - Pfrantzgarten (Pflantzgarten)

Ultra-high-speed S-shaped section with continuous blind corners.Test drivers running in Nürburgring say, "This is the most interesting place."However, since it is attacked by G from all directions, front, back, left, right, up and down, it is "fun" only with a strong body and undercarriage.

Open to the public

Although the North Course is closed during testing, training and racing events, it has been open to the public for nearly 80 years as a one-way toll road. Since its opening in 1927, it has been called the Touristen fahrten (sightseeing tour) and can be driven by any car or motorcycle, motorhome or trailer, or even a tour bus, as long as it is not an illegal car.There is also a riding experience by a driving school and a professional driver.

It was open to the public mainly on Sundays, but it was often open on Saturdays and weekday afternoons.Winter months may be closed due to repairs and weather.

German road law applies when open to the public.Speed ​​limits are only present in some places due to noise reduction, etc., passing is prohibited, police are monitoring with helicopters, and vehicles that are driving dangerously are being cracked down.Due to the location of the circuit, there are many accidents caused by drivers who overconfidence in the performance of their own car, and there are many galleries like tourist spots where accidents and course outs occur frequently.Therefore, when an accident occurs, applause and cheers occur.

As of 2011, 1 cars and motorcycles in one lap of the north courseHowever, the 4-lap ticket costs 89 €, the 15-lap ticket costs 310 €, and the 25-lap ticket costs 470 €.The annual pass costs 1350 €. A 20-minute ticket for the GP course costs 38 €.Electronic money "ring ° card" is issued and can be used at the entrance of the course instead of a ticket, and can also be used at various facilities such as restaurants and shops in the Nürburgring.

Since the slow-moving pit lane area where the entrance gate of about 200m is installed bypasses the GP course, general users cannot completely go around 20.8km.A gate will also be provided on the main straight during times of congestion.Car insurance does not cover accidents that occur on the north course.

Automobile development was flourishing in Germany in the 1900s, but there were no permanent courses for R & D or racing.1904Is an international raceGordon Bennett CupThe popularity of motorsports increased, with the success of the race in Bad Homburg, but the safety issues of drivers and spectators due to racing on public roads became apparent, calling for the need for an independent circuit. It was.人口が少なく、起伏に富む山岳地帯であるアイフェル地方にサーキットを建設する案が浮上するものの、モータースポーツ人気は急速に低下し、その後Although plans to build a circuit in the Eifel region, a rugged and rugged mountainous region, have emerged, motorsport's popularity has declined rapidly since then.World War IWas to break out, and the plan was blank.

Early 1920sADACEifelrennen (Eifel Race) was held on public roads in the Eifel region, but it was not a dangerous and appropriate place to race.Dr Otto Creutz, a member of the Eifel local council, proposes the construction of a dedicated circuit with the support of ADAC, measures against unemployment in the Eifel region, provides it as a test course to automobile companies, attracts tourists Was also included.当時ケルンCologne at that timeMayorMetKonrad AdenauerWith the support of the government1925Construction started in.The circuit design was led by Gustav Eichler.当時の重要なレースの一つであったIt was one of the important races at that timeTarga FlorioI refer to the course of.

1927Open to.The total length of the course was 28.265km, the number of corners was 174, and the average width of the course was 8m to 9m.In addition to this Gesamtstrecke (all courses), the 22.8km north course (Germany:Nordschleife, Nordschleife), South course with a total length of 7.7km (Germany:Südschleife, Zutschleife), Zielschleife (also known as Betonschleife) with a total length of 2.281 km, used in three layouts. The Start und Ziel (start / finish area) is common, and the Zielschleife was mainly used for warm-up driving.

Eifelrennen and sooner than the openingGerman Grand Prix,World Championship Cycling TournamentHeld.It was opened to the public as a one-way toll road in the evening and weekends.

Since the 1931 German Grand Prix, it has been held using only the north course.全長28kmのフルコースを使用した大きなレースは1939年が最後となっており、フルコースの最速タイムはXNUMX was the last big race using a full course with a total length of XNUMX km, and the fastest time of the full course isLouis ShillonIt was due to Bugatti.The shorter and safer south course was used in minor events and motorcycle races.当初の名称はThe original name wasNürburg-RingIt was, but in 1933NaziIs in GermanyMotor sportsIt was renovated with financial support throughout, and at this time from the namehyphenIs takenNurburgringIt became.


After World War II, the bombing damage was repaired and the race resumed in the 1950s. The 1951 German Grand Prix was incorporated into the F1 World Championship, and the North Course was once again the venue.1954At the European Grand Prix, the number of spectators is estimated to have exceeded 40.

1953, ADAC 1000km endurance race is held for the first time.1960The German Grand Prix was held in F2 class using the South Course and was not counted in the championship.1961At the German Grand Prix in August, in practicePhil Hill Ferrari 156F1Recorded 9 minutes 8 seconds 55 to break the 2-minute wall for the first time on the north course.南コースではロードレースRoad race on the south courseGerman Grand PrixWas sometimes held, but the main venue wasSolitude,Hockenheim LinkMet.

1964,F1German GPHondaWas the first Japanese car to run in F1.

In the late 1960s, the risk of racing on F1 cars, which are as fast as other circuits, increased, and criticisms of safety increased. In 1967, the Hohen Line Chicane was added in front of the start / finish line straight to reduce the speed of entry into the pit lane, extending the total length by 25m.

1970To24 Hours of NürburgringHas begun.

1970Zandvoort CircuitAtPierce CollegeIn response to the fatal accidentGPDADecided to boycott the German Grand Prix if it wasn't refurbished to improve safety, as it did for the spa the previous year.The refurbishment was not possible in a short period of time, so the German Grand Prix moved to Hockenheim, which had already been refurbished.


The course was renovated, and the north course was equipped with safety equipment such as arm cobarriers, and bumps and jump sections were removed by repaving the road surface.The course layout has also been adjusted to make the race line more straight and the number of official corners has decreased.Thanks to these renovations, F1971 was held again in 1.

1972, Change the bridge between Hatzenbach and Breitscheid, which have a narrow course width.1973, A left corner was added after the Metsgesfeld corner in the foreground to slow down the Karenhardt corner, where the entrance was dangerous and bumpy.The safety area was expanded and safety was improved by removing jump spots on the main straight and cutting down trees and bushes.

After the revival of F1971 in 1, safety demands from F1 drivers and the International Automobile Sports Federation have increased year by year.However, the north course is a long course of 22 km, and it is difficult to create a space to set up a safety area due to the foot of the mountain, so the repair cost will be enormous, and we will respond to further requests. Became impossible.Due to the long course, the number of marshalls and staff required was five times that of a normal F1 race, and there was a problem that it took time for the ambulance to arrive.Another problem was that television broadcasting, which was extremely popular, could not cover all corners.

1976, F1 driver boycott happened again, and the race was to be held by voting,Niki LaudaCrashed during the race and a major accident occurred in which the machine burned.The accident was decisive and it was recognized that 1976 was the last F1 event to be held at the Nürburgring. Since 1977 F1 has moved to Hockenheim.

The Road Racing World Championship changed to Solitude in the 1960s and will be held again at the Nürburgring.Initially, the South Course was used, but due to poor maintenance, it has been held on the North Course since 1970.

From 1981, new construction of the GP course was started around the old pit area.As a result, the north course was bypassed and shortened to 20.832km, and a small pit lane was added.This layout was used only in 1983 for 1000km endurance races.

The north course was also renovated between 1982 and 1983, expanding the run-off areas of the Aremberg and Brünchen corners and repaving the scattered pumps and jump spots.Racing line markers were painted throughout the course.

The South Course was not maintained in 1970-1971, and safety measures were far behind the North Course, so it was decided to abandon it a few years later.Currently, the south course has left a part of the forest section in the latter half of the course, and most of it has been destroyed due to the construction of a new GP course.

1984 GP course

In 1984, a circuit with the highest level of safety at the time called the GP course (GP-Strecke) was built to replace the finish course (Zielschleife) in order to regain the right to host the German GP.

An exhibition race was held at the opening event on May 5, and many prominent drivers participated.レース車両はRace vehiclesMercedes 190E 2.3-16Jack Brabham, Phil Hill,Dennis Harum,James Hunt,Jack Lafitte,Niki Lauda,Carlos Reutemann,Keke Rosberg,Jody Schecter,Alan Prost,Ayrton Senna,John WatsonParticipated, and Senna won the championship over Lauda and Reutemann.

This GP course hosted the 1984 European Grand Prix and the 1985 and German Grand Prix, but was only used for two years.

The beadle chicane was refurbished from 1985 to 1987, significantly reducing speed.Separately, a route for two wheels is also set up. The main races on the GP course after leaving F2 are 1km endurance, DTM, motorcycles, camion (track) races and vintage car races. ADAC Truck Grand Prix in 1000,Rock am ringIs held for the first time.

F1 resurrection

1995 - 2006

Debuted in 1991 and won the first title in 1994Michael SchumacherFrom 1995 to 2006, the European Grand Prix (1997 and 1998Luxembourg GP), The F1 Grand Prix will be held again. With the revival of F1 holding, circuit facilities have been renovated frequently.Castrol S's 5000-seat Mercedes Grandstand with VIP area and Medical Center are newly established.

In 1998, the Bilstein Grandstand was also rebuilt and the first large screen was installed.A new access road to the Nürburgring has also been developed.1999から2001The pit building, control tower, and race control facilities were rebuilt, and the latest media center was also set up.

2002, GP course has been significantly renovated.オーバーテイクチャンスを増やすため、スタート/フィニッシュストレート後のカストロールSを廃し、タイトな右コーナー(非公式愛称In order to increase the chance of overtaking, Castrol S after the start / finish straight is abolished and the tight right corner (unofficial nickname)Howg hook)change to.Following that, an infield section (Mercedes Arena) was added, and the cart course next to the paddock was abolished accordingly. The total length of the GP course has increased from 4.556km to 5.148km. In 2003, the asphalt was repaved on the north course, and the design of the GP course, such as NGK chicane, was slightly changed.

2007 - 2013

In Germany since 2007F1 Grand PrixTheHockenheim LinkThe F2008 Grand Prix was not held in 1 because it was held alternately every other year.[Note 3].. Audi S (or Shell S) in the 2007th and 8th corners was renamed Michael Schumacher S ahead of the 9 European Grand Prix.

2009A development project called "Nürburgring 2009" has started to coincide with the German Grand Prix.Hotels, event halls, amusement facilities, shopping malls, etc. are constructed.The grandstand was also rebuilt to a 600-seat one with a VIP lounge that can accommodate 5000 people. Some parts were not completed in time for the 2009 German Grand Prix,Roller coaster ring The racer was postponed to open in 2011 due to a malfunction in the launcher.However, due to the large-scale renovation including this project, it borrowed 3 million euros (about 300 billion yen), which deteriorated the management.This contributes to later bankruptcy.


In 2011, the event was held without delay despite management problems, but after the event ended, management difficulties became more serious, and the EU (European Union) was requested for urgent financial assistance, but it was rejected in 2012. It went bankrupt in July.The owner of the Nürburgring circuit is Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, which holds a 7% stake.Therefore, it seemed that the originally planned 90 event was canceled, but we were able to secure enough funds to hold it in 2013.However, in terms of alternating holdings, the 2013 holding was virtually canceled, and eventually it was held.20143ToGermany-DusseldorfThe auto parts manufacturer "Capricorn Group" based in Japan has acquired management rights with an acquisition price of more than 1 million euros (about 142 billion yen).Therefore, the complete closure of the course was avoided.

2015 - 2019

In March 2015, at the German National Championship Nürburgring Endurance Series (VLN) Round 3 Final RaceNissan GT-R NISMO GT3Soared into the air near Fluke Platts on the north course, crashed into the guardrail and jumped into the spectators' seats, resulting in the death of one spectator.[50]..この事故を受けてFIA-GT3クラスのマシンのレース出場が一時的に禁止にされることとなりIn response to this accident, FIA-GTXNUMX class machines will be temporarily banned from racing.[51]Although it is not complete, a speed limit section was set up on the north course and it was decided to wait for a time attack battle using a commercial car etc. that had reached the level of less than 1 minutes per lap.[51].. For this reason24 Hours of NürburgringAlthough it was feared that the event would be held, a restrictor would be installed on vehicles of SP7 class or higher, and the speed would be 200km / h near Flugplatz where the accident occurred, and 2km / h in two other places considered dangerous.
