What is the new distance after refurbishment when measuring the official lap time at the Nürburgring?

Posted: Posted:

The distance on the Nürburgring Nordschleife is now 20.8km from 20.6km before

When Mr. Larskan broke a new lap time record at the Nürburgring in Panamera in 2020,Currently, the distance is "20.832 km" according to the new law of the Nürburgring.I wrote.

At this time, I was only thinking, "Hey, the distance when measuring the official lap time has changed", but after that, every time there was a lap time update at various new Nürburgrings, "Well, so what?" Has changed? "

The other dayPorsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS time announcement at NürburgringBut these two times were set out, didn't they?

I was curious about it, but at the end, I checked it properly.

I thought that there might be other people who are interested in it, so I hope you find it helpful ^^

What is the Nürburgring North Course? (Nürburgring Nordschleife / Green Hell)

This is firstNürburgring official websiteIt is an overall view of the Nürburgring posted in ↓

Of these, each car manufacturer owns a car, and when measuring the lap time at the Nürburgring, use the place called the north course (Nordschleife).

This figure shows only the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

Nürburgring Nordschleife 20.6km course (short)

When measuring the official lap time on this north course, the course that was previously measured as a total length of 20.6 km (I do not know because there is no official record written sometime, but until around 2020?) Is as follows. It is the part that is made into a purple-ish color.

★ Addition ★
In the comment, I was told that "at the beginning of 2019, when Renault rewound the fastest mass production battle of FWD cars, it was messy when the distance was different", so the Nur measurement distance changed around the beginning of 2019. It seems to be. Thank you for the information ^^

If you take a closer look at this, there is a part at the bottom where the purple color is slightly missing and the color is red. I understand? ↓

Nürburgring Nordschleife T13 renamed to Sabine-Schmitz-Kurve

This red area used to be called "T13" (Tribune 13), and now it is newly named "SABINE SCHMITZ KURVE".

In honor of Sabine Schmitz, a female racing driver who died in March 2021, it was announced on June 18, 2021 that her name would be the new name for this T13.

The official lap time on the Nürburgring Nordschleife so far was 20.6km, which is the distance from here to the front of the part that enters there ↓

* By the way, to be precise, it was measured at 20.8km including this T13 for a while from the time when it was recorded that the first measurement on the Nürburgring north course started on May 28, 1983. There is also a time.

Current Nürburgring Nordschleife 20.832km course

And until now, this 20.6km was the distance to record the official lap time on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, but now (at least after 2020) this T13 or SABINE SCHMITZ KURVE The time measured by running the entire north course without skipping the part called "Official lap time on the Nürburgring Nordschleife" was adopted.

The distance is 20.832km.

Although the difference is only about 200m so far, the time difference created by the "200m +" distance for fast cars makes a considerable difference, which is a very important comparison value.

The difference in Nur's lap time measurement distance these days was about the difference between whether this part of about 200 m is included or not, but this time I understand well what part has changed and I am convinced. I was able to do it ^^

In the future, it will be unified around this 20.8km, so it may be easier to understand if it is the lap time when the Nürburgring goes around the north course exactly once.

However, this 20.8km measurement has not yet penetrated & it seems to be "slow" when compared with the time at a short distance in the past, so it is still 2 at the present & short distance. It seems that the flow is that one measured value is announced.

Nürburgring Nordschleife for the general public BTG 19.1km course

By the way, there is another measurement distance at 19.1km called "BTG" on this Nürburgring Nordschleife.

What that is is not the official lap time measurement by the manufacturer etc., but the story when an individual went to this Nürburgring Nordschleife, but such a general person said the last "Döttinger Höhe" It seems that he cannot run on the straight part called.

Döttinger Höhe is the red part on this map ↓

Therefore, when the general public wants to measure their own lap time on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, it is often the measurement value at 19.1km, which is the last straight line called BTG.

I see.

By the way, the reason why it is called BTG is that it is an abbreviation of Bridge to Gantry, and it refers to the whole picture from the bridge in this last straight line to the place called Gantry at the end of the bridge. It seems that it is a BTG.

Oh, it's refreshing ^^
