The iconic German track has finally decided to remove the speed limits that were imposed last summer.
This means that racing teams and manufacturers are allowed again to go full-throttle for the entire length of the circuit.
Nurburgring imposed the speed restrictions after Jahn Mardenborough’s accident last year at a VLN race in which a spectator was killed, also forbidding manufacturers from attempting and publishing lap times.
The speed restrictions were then heavily criticized, especially by racing drivers, saying that they were against the whole purpose of the circuit.
However, the management of the track worked on sections of the track over the winter, repaving sections and adding protective fences in order to make Nurburgring as safe as possible.
So the first VLN race of the 2016 season will take place on April 2 without any speed limitations and the manufacturers can now rent the track again in order to measure the performance of their car.
