  • Nurburgring Getting Changes

    Thanks to Fasttoys, we have learned of five different sections of the N’Ring getting improvements. This will result in faster times, so yes we are going to have to face the “famous asterisk” on new records, potentially-inacccurate comparisons and more. However, the changes were made for safety and related reasons, and not only have serious crashes occurred there, but also serious injuries and even fatalities, and thus we celebrate those improvements.

    With the Nurburgring closing its doors for the 2018 season about two weeks ago, the track officials started working on the circuit. We were only given a few official photos, along with a list of the five corners that are receiving attention, but the rumor mill went crazy, mentioning that the Schwedenkreuz entry bump would be removed. Well, as it turns out, the rumors were true.

    The track management has decided to change the asphalt, along with what is underneath it for 2019, with the work covering five sections of the track, or 2.5 kilometers: Flugplatz/Schwedenkreuz, Kallenhard, Wehrseifen, Ex-Mühle and Hohe Acht.

    And with Ring settler Misha Charoudin recently interviewing a track representative on the changes, while literally walking us through the changes, we can now get into the details of the transformation.

    We are told that while the Sx bump is gone, the layout of the track will be maintained, with this including the corner entry point, the width and the camber.

    OF course, the said removal makes things safer, as many novices were caught out by the configuration. Then again, this also removes a bit of the fun for the hardcore Ring adventurers. And it should also shave a bit of time off the lap numbers, which means the battle for the various records might just start all over again.

    Nevertheless, there are also sections of the track where the changes are welcome by everybody. One of them is Kallenhard. And with the asphalt becoming extremely slippery in the rain and leading to multiple crashes, here's to hoping this will change - the Ring official explains the formula used for the new tarmac aims to ensure minimum grip variations across the track.

    When bringing you various vlogs like the one we have here, we sometimes talk about the hot spots of the videos. Then again, this isn't the case here, with the full clip being worthy of your attention. Speaking of which, a new video of the sort will be filmed in February, when the construction work is completed.
