As Adam explains in the Nurburgring Circuit Guide, it’s best to learn the track in small chunks and the same is true with this guide. We advise you watch the video in sections, to break down the learning process.

The Nürburgring Nordschleife is one of the most famous circuits on the planet and has been the definitive test for cars and drivers for many years.

As far as racing circuits go, there is nothing quite like the Nürburgring and so it can be quite difficult to prepare properly, we hope this guide will help. The track is 13-miles in length, with over one hundred corners sweeping through Germany’s Eifel mountains.

The “Green Hell” is fast and flowing, but drivers must proceed with caution as the blind crests and little run-off can easily catch even the most experienced out.

Adam Christo is a British racing driver who has had over 30 career wins and 78 podiums. His experience at the Nordschleife is impressive with 8 VLN wins and a Nürburgring 24h win in 2016 with the Mercedes AMG team, including fastest lap.

Scott Mansell is Driver 61’s founder and professional coach, best known from the Driver’s University series.
