The Strangest Vehicles at the Nürburgring


You’ve probably heard about the Nürburgring, the famous Grand Prix racetrack in Germany, but did you know it’s also open to the public? Since its opening in 1927, the track has been used by the public for the so-called “Touristenfahrten,” i.e. anyone with a road-legal car or motorcycle, as well as tour buses, motor homes, or cars with trailers.

Passing on the right is prohibited and some sections have speed limits, but otherwise you can put the pedal to the metal – even though the track’s general conditions state that any form of racing, including speed record attempts, is forbidden. But the course is way tougher than you think, and be ready to accept that a DHL truck might pass you any time.
