Report: Nurburgring to lift ban on manufacturer-set record attempts

Not too long ago, the Nurburgring hit the headlines after banning automobile manufacturers from attempting record lap times, following a tragic accident in March.

But now, Road&Track reports the ban was only temporary as the track’s management plans to lift the ban and restrictions.

It wasn’t formally or officially announced, though an inside at Capricorn Nurburgring GmbH hinted at the possibility.

As of now, the fastest manufacturer-set lap time goes to Porsche with the 918 Spyder, lapping the ‘Ring in just six minutes and 57 seconds.
