Since its construction in 1925-1927, the Nordschleife has enjoyed a reputation as a terrifying and merciless route through the Eifel forests.

When an English journalist visited the track during the opening race, noted that it seemed “as if a reeling, drunken giant had been sent out to determine the route”.

The Formula 1 pilot Sir John Young Jackie Stewart, gave it a name “Green Hell”. Racing and winning on the Nordschleife has always been special for racing drivers.

The track is one of the most demanding in the world. The highest point is 627.70m above sea level, and the lowest is 320m above sea level.

Nikki Lauda became the first driver to lap the track in under seven minutes.
