Full steam ahead: Nurburgring ditches its speed limits

New fences, track repairs create the 'Ring secure again

Germany's 13-mile, 154-turn Nurburgring racetrack is officially going back to full speeds. The well-known track adopted speed restrictions at certain points after latest March’s crash when one spectator was killed during a VLN Endurance race.

Speed limits were imposed between the Hocheichen and Schwedenkreuz sections (one hundred twenty-four mph) and at Dottinger Hohe (one hundred fifty-five mph).

The track made a handful of upgrades including more FIA fencing, five hundred meters of new track, extensions of portions of the tire wall, closing certain spectator sections and closing gaps in certain the metal fences.

We’re hoping to look manufacturers return to the circuit for testing. As track-day-loving enthusiasts, a lap of the ‘Ring is honestly one of the best measures of car’s on-track performance.

The VLN Endurance championship will return to the track on April 2.
