Video: Old Crashes At Nurburgring
The Nurburgring is one of the world’s oldest and most storied race tracks. Over the decades, millions of miles have been clocked on the "Green Hell," and in that time hundreds of cars have been sacrificed to the German track.
Lets start the day by taking a look back at some of the oldest crashes recorded by camera on the Nordschleife, all filmed in 1970.
Now if you think that sounds like a pretty terrible way to start your morning, don’t worry. Thanks to a heavy dose of Benny Hill music, and the relatively low speed that most of the single-car collisions take place at, there is very little here to depress you or ruin your first cup of coffee.
