The List #0073: Drive the Nürburgring

Posted Nov 21st 2012 2:56PM


Any trip to the automotive mecca of Germany would not be complete without a visit to the famed Nürburgring, nor would a list called 1,001 Automotive Things To Do Before You Die. Thus, we've reached the whole point of Jessi and Patrick's trip to Germany: Drive the Nürburgring.

Many prior episodes of The List have prepared J and P for what's required of them to lap the Nürburgring Nordschleife successfully without shunting the BMW M3 they picked up earlier, but we felt they needed a little more schooling. After having them read up on The Green Hell and memorize its corners in simulators, the final instruction came from the Queen of the 'Ring herself, Sabine Schmitz, who was gracious enough to give our hosts a tour of the track. Unfortunately, the M3 couldn't hold up to a single lap's worth of Sabine's driving skills, but don't fault the car: The Nürburgring is 73 turns, 20.6 kilometres (12.8-miles) long and changes nearly 305 metres (1,000 feet) in elevation.

Watch Jessi and Patrick conclude their Germany trip below by lapping the Nürburgring. If you've got your idea for The List, submit it by clicking the Your List link below.
