2007 Le Mans Series-1000km of Nurburgring
The Nurburgring 1000km first saw the light of day on the ‘Nordschleife’, the longest circuit ever constructed (22.8 km) for motor racing. Next to this track which was created in 1925, is a more modern circuit which is still long by today’s standards at a little over 5km, which hosted F1 for the first time in 1984. Shorter, with an adapted surface, it is much safer; however it is still subject to the unstable climate of the Eifel region which can at any time completely change the conditions of the race. The lap record for the long track (6 min 11s) was established by Stefan Bellof in 1983 during the last ever 1000km race on the Nordschleife.
