adding the nurburgring would be cool if it was the long one, but as it won't be. Thats just not as good.

There seems to be a myth that goes around that the proper Nurburgring cannot be used, I watched a Porsche Supercup race from the Nordschleife in the wet earlier this year. It was a bit hairy with some accidents, but most drivers managed just fine. The great drivers managed, and the not so good ones struggled - that's always the way in motorsport. GT3 cars are not that much faster, and considering the race would most likely take place in the dry - it would be as "safe" as motor racing could be.

I would never put something like an F1 or LMP1 car around the Nordschleife with their cornering speeds though. But, with some GT cars - I don't see the issue.

Prior to the Supercup race, I had never seen a race around the Nordschleife. It got me thinking, with a racing car that isn't crazily fast, is it that bad?

nurby is more dangerous that abu dhabi but it's no worse than mllory park or cadwell park

the real problem is you need about 900 marshalls but vln race on it 6 or 7 times a year with gt3 at it's top class (and the odd gt2 car, but there close in place anyway)

Here's hoping that Rossi has a decent outing, he could of course drive nothing else than a red Ferrari in Italy. Very Happy

That article says that Dodge is represented, I assume with a second generation Viper?

It'll be a couple of years yet, but it's coming. I can see a factory Le Mans drive in his future.

I’d like to see that. I’d also like to see Rossi run some shorter races, if Rossi can be as spectacular as he was on two wheels, seeing him dicing for position would be pretty exciting.
