Derestricted ’Ring

The Nurburgring is back to full speed with the removal of speed limits on three sections of the famed 20.8km circuit, paving the way for the return of unofficial lap records. Speed restrictions were imposed last year after a spectator was killed when a Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 cleared a catch fence. Significant changes have been implemented to have the speed limits lifted, including extra fencing, repaving some sections and reviewing spectator zones.

Porsche’s 918 Spyder holds the production-car lap record at ‘The Green Hell’ at 6min 57sec.
