VIDEO: The Green Hell Takes Many Victims

The Nürburgring has earned the nickname The Green Hell. The 14.2 mile long loop of the Nordschleife consist of some complex chicanes, hairpins, elevation changes, off-camber turns, and long straights. The circuit is a true driver’s test of discipline, skill, and courage. The long loop truly tests a person’s focus and driving abilities. Throw in mother nature’s rain and The Green Hell can become a deathtrap for cars as seen in the video below. Check out how some people have been lucky enough to escape tank-slapping instabilities, and how many people received very expensive lessons in search of the meaning of grip, understeer, and oversteer.
