Track News: Nurburgring undergoing annual maintenance

The Nurburgring is currently undergoing its annual maintenance.

Due to the level of work required to get any piece of asphalt refreshed, the track typically only gets one kilometer (0.6 miles) refreshed during its winter shutdown. This year, however, the winter break will see 2.5 km (1.5 miles) of tarmac being dug up and replaced with fresh asphalt. The stretch will cover the area from Dottinger Hohe up to the recently renamed Sabine-Schmitz-Kurve.
