Nurburgring management has announced a host of changes will be implemented to the track.
First of all, most likely the speed limits on the track will be lifted soon. Track records were banned in mid-June, following a fatal accident during a race from the VLN Endurance championship earlier this year.
A list of a total of 16 developments on the track has been announced, but full details about the changes are limited.
Carsten Schumacher, CEO, disclosed the famous jump at Quiddelbacher Hohe and the double right-hander of Flugplatz will be significantly changed during the winter downtime between November 2015 and March 2016.
“Based on a detailed survey we will renew 500 meters of the track surface in the area Flugplatz, thereby eliminating five bumps that have arisen over the many years of hard-use,” he explained.
Other improvements include bigger fences on various places.
