On my single visit to the NÃ¼rburgring it was a beautiful sunny day. Thankfully I didn’t have to endure the dreadfully wet conditions experienced last weekend, as Dale from Bridge to Gantry reports:
This weekend the weather wasn’t just damp. It was wet. In fact, it was soaking. Rivers ran across the Nordschleife and sub-10-minute laps were nothing but a fantasy… of course the ‘Ring doesn’t close for wet weather alone.
So it was a quieter, slower day. Inconsistent patches of low cloud would occasionally come down to smother the track like a fog – this caused a late start and an early finish on both Saturday’s evening session as well as Sunday’s normal full-day opening.
In these conditions it’s all too easy to crash, and of the half-dozen or so laps I completed there was evidence of two or three ‘offs’ on every one!
