I can’t wait till Iracing release this legendary track.

I’ve drove this track 19 laps, the “grüne holle” (green hell) is more then just a track it’s an expierence nobody can describe allmost a way of life.

Great news, would like to hear more from this.

With kind regards, Kjeld Peterse

Just wow. Congratulations to all at iRacing for bringing this giant of a racetrack to the service.

Going to the Nurburgring 1000 will be even more special now knowing we will be able to drive it in a few seasons!

Fantastic!

If only iRacing was a racing simulator, this would be great news. But Gran Turismo 4 beat iRacing by many years as the first arcade racing game to have Nurburgring.

Good try guys. Maybe one day you’ll be a racing simulator. Maybe. At least you might release driver swaps after 5 years of promising it “next build”.

Hah, obvious troll attempt Peter but Grand Prix Legends, created by these guys had Nordschleife back in 1998. When did Gran Turismo get it?

Sorry Peter but you are wrong. Mario Kart is a far better simulator than iRacing. They laser scanned tracks that don’t even exist! How much more realistic can you get than that?

How will this track be incorporated into the different Road series?
And: will there be a 24-hours-race with 3-driver-teams?

For details see the Forum post: http://members.iracing.com/jforum/posts/list/3278485.page
