Nurburgring management has decided to ban lap records from the famous race track
Nurburgring management has decided to ban lap records from the famous race track.
The reason for that is the fatal accident during a race from the VLN Endurance championship, in which one spectator died. Shortly after the crash the management imposed a speed limit at Flugplatz, where the crash occurred. Since then, more restrictions have been imposed at other high-speed sectors.
The track management comments that the ban will be reviewed at the end of the year, but for now manufacturers are banned from attempting lap-time runs, even if they have rented out the entire track.
The Koenigsegg team was reportedly just about to attempt a new fastest lap on the 13-mile (21 km) track with the One:1 but will stay on hold for now.
