BMW Motorrad Motorsportâs home race takes place on the oldest permanent racetracks in Germany. The NÃ¼rburgring was opened in 1927 and is one of the most famous and iconic circuits in Europe. Until the 1970s, races were held on the infamous Nordschleife, which is over 20 kilometres long. Also known as the âGreen Hellâ, this long circuit variant is nowadays used as a venue for many long-distance races. The Grand Prix circuit was opened in 1984, and has been the subject of several upgrades and modifications since. The Superbike World Championship made its debut at the circuit in the Eifel region of Germany in 1998.
The NÃ¼rburgring has a unique layout, with several undulating sections and many changes of direction. As such, the bike must have a good steering response. In addition, there are zones of very heavy braking following fast sections. One of them is the first corner, the âYokohama Sâ. The following âMercedes Arenaâ features a series of corners with reducing radii. âBitâ corner is another key point on the circuit. A good line is vital to carry sufficient speed through to the subsequent high-speed section. The NÃ¼rburgring offers a host of overtaking opportunities, thus guaranteeing thrilling and spectacular races.
