Additional Information

  • A beautifully illustrated history of the infamous Nürburgring race track

The Nürburgring race track, located in Nürburg, Germany, is a Grand Prix track, built in 1984, coupled with a much longer 'North Loop' track built in the 1920s. Nicknamed 'The Green Hell' by Jackie Stewart following his victory in the 1968 Grand Prix, the race track has been a source of endless fascination for anyone involved in or following motorsports - partly because of its history and partly because of the challenge it provides. Notoriously unforgiving and difficult, the track was the location of Niki Lauda's horrific crash during the 1976 German Grand Prix.

The official book of the Nürburgring GmbH jubilee, and published alongside the release of a film, 90 Years of Nürburgring offers an insight into the track that's never been shown before. Author Hartmut Lehbrink has interviewed race drivers to capture the history and raw emotion of Nürburgring. Beautifully illustrated, this is an absolute must for all those with even just a passing interest in motorsports.

This illustrates a danger of buying a book unseen on the Internet. The book was nowhere what its title leads you to believe and is a very poor product. It is a sparsely detailed work with little depth. The pieces of what he considers the "key" races are two page summaries that tell you little of what happened in the race itself. And to leave Tazio Nuvolari's drive in the 1935 German Grand Prix out of this list of races is criminal. It almost seems the author limited the book to what he could or only chose to research. One third of the book are two page "testimonials" which are again lacking in depth and include people who drove only on the "new" shortened 1990s and 2000 grand prix track and people like Max Mosley who have never driven there period! I am a Nurburgring "nut" who reads and watches videos of anything I can get my hands on about the Nordschleife. I plan on traveling there after I retire from working to drive the course.

Overall a great book. Photos and writing are excellent.

I must say I was disappointed the book has zero track maps or diagrams where significant events occurred on the track.
What a place! After "discovering" the 'Ring in1959 reading Road & Track and Sports Cars Illustrated I finally got there in 2012. What a thrill. I put my rental car on the Nordschleife for one lap (26 euros) and will never forget it. This book is a beauty, although there are never enough color pictures of the sports and formula cars that raced there in the fifties and sixties.
