A few months ago, an accident during the VLN Endurance Championship at the Nurburgring led to the death of a spectator. This is the sort of thing
that motorsports organizations have made big advances in preventing, and officials at the ’Ring took immediate steps to keep it from happening again. That meant, among other things, the implementing of a speed limit until all factors that might affect safety on the course could be evaluated. That has now been done, and it was announced that Nurburgring officials now have a plan to lift the limit once the new safety measures are in place.
