    Who would want to walk next to cars doing 200 km/h? :P

    There’s a special event, called Rad & Run at the Ring, where you can walk (run) or cycle round the Ring.

    More here: http://www.nuerburgring.de/en/events/more-events/rad-run-at-the-ring.html

    Why would you want to walk it when you can DRIVE IT! Then again, driving it would probably be horrifying…

    Two laps of the Nordschliefe would make a good marathon.

    Sorry to hijack your thread SBL, but..

    Does anyone know where all the writing on the track is from? I was watching the 24hr over the weekend and the whole track is seemingly covered in it.

    It’s nice to see writing on track,though don’t know what is the meaning. For example it would be nice to see written ‘Ferrari car Park’ on Larascasse corner in Monaco.

    when i manage to afford a car that can quickly and safely get me round the Ring without taking my life or maiming me, im so up for driving round it. I imagine that laps on Forza dont even compare!

    Ive no idea what the writting is for or what it means, but ive always wondered. Its been on there for as long as i know of.

    I’m pretty sure the writing is done by spectators like in the Tour de France. I don’t know what they say, but it’s probably stuff like “Hi Mom!” or “You Suck!”.

    “Hi Mom!” or “You Suck!”.

    Or they just bring those 2 phrases together.

    Until now, I didn’t know that an event existed that allows you to walk/cycle the track; but that’s not really my cup of tea. However, I definitely want to drive it at some point, even it’s in something totally rubbish (for the irony)!

    I had a look on DavidS’s idea and it would definately be one of the toughest marathons in the world. Just look at those elevations.

    http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4612611

    Basically it’s nordschleife with small section into GP course to increase length enough for the 42,195 kilometres. Well that route twice makes it 42,186 but just moving start or finish by few metres would do that.

    might try to run this over the german gp race weekend, if its possible to get on the actual circuit then without petrol heads zooming about
