    Germany’s Nurburgring Nordschleife (Northern Loop) is one of the most demanding, exhilarating and treacherous racing tracks in the world, earning the reputation of being one of the best benchmark circuits for any serious performance driver. Each gruelling lap stretches more than 20km and includes more than 70 turns, requiring complete concentration for up to eight minutes for even the fastest cars.

    With so much to focus on mastering the Nurburgring could easily take the average driver years of practice. Time that most enthusiasts who actually make the pilgrimage to the ‘ring simply don’t have. If you’re planning a trip to the Nurburgring or simply want some driving tips to help in the latest racing simulators, BMW offers one of the most complete guides to driving at the circuit as a free download.
    The detailed text provides a bend-by-bend analysis, tips from professional racers and all the facts you could ever want to know about the infamous circuit. Some of the tips include detailed diagrams of racing lines and corner apexes, ideal locations for gear changes and braking zones, and best entry and exit speeds to attack each corner. You can download the guide in PDF format by clicking here.

    There is also a pdf document available here with some text in french but with good drawings of the crests, cambers or downhills.

    It might be a good addition to the BMW document.
