The owners of the famous German race track in Nurburgring forbidden to put on track a new lap record.
Restrictions apply to all, including automakers that test their cars on the track. Note that the time at the Nurburgring is often an important marketing tool in today’s automotive industry.
It is noteworthy that the owners of the track crew notified the ban before the founder of the eponymous car company Christian von Kenigsegg arrived in Nyurburging to set the course record at the supercar One: 1, which had every chance to show the best time among the competitors (car recently broke the record for Acceleration to 300 km / h).
The reason for the ban was the death of one of the spectators at the track last March, when the British driver Ian Mardenboro lost control of his Nissan GT-R and flew off the track into the crowd of people. First, speed limits operated at one site, but later it spread to the entire “Northern loop”.
