W he Capricorn Nürburgring Managing Director Carsten Schumacher last Week assured that there would be no more speed limits on the Nordschleife in 2016. However, this would require certain construction measures. However, according to information from Motorsport Aktuell, the planned measures have not yet been finally decided.

Intensive discussions are currently still underway behind the scenes with the DMSB and the FIA ​​as well as with the state approval authorities about which measures to be taken on the airfield route sections , Schwedenkreuz and Döttinger Höhe are to be implemented.

Discussions continue

The DMSB have a Nordschleife permit - Working groups achieved first results. The requirements for a permit can now also be acquired as part of the Friday tests before the VLN races - a relief for drivers who want to start during the current season. At the same time, the discussion about tightening regulations in other areas continues. After Jann Mardenborough's accident, many critical voices had been voiced at the DMSB Permit Nordschleife, which was required this year.

Having at least one international B license, along with a course without further requirements, was sufficient, the permit for the level A, which is also necessary for SP9 vehicles like the crashed Nissan. Mardenborough was able to make its VLN debut on the GT3 racing car.
