FIA validates safety measures at Nürburgring

Following Jann Mardenborough's accident in a VLN race that cost the life of a spectator on March 28, 2015, the Nürburgring organizers studied different solutions to improve the safety of the German circuit. The International Automobile Federation has validated the proposed measures.

New barriers will be installed in the Döttinger Höhe / Antoniusbuche and Hocheichen areas.

The track will be resurfaced for 500 meters to be smoother in the Quiddelbacher Höhe / Flugplatz area. A new barrier was installed in the spring.

A restricted area prohibited to spectators will be set up at Schwedenkreuz on the right side of the track. A barrier will be installed on the left side of the track.

Safety rails will also be added at Metzgesfeld to improve the safety of spectators and the camping area on the right side of the track.

A new barrier will finally be installed towards the Stefan Bellof sector.

“Weather permitting, work will begin at the Nürburgring from mid-November, to be ready for the start of March.”, said Carsten Schumacher, the Managing Director of the Nürburgring GmbH.
