A question for the more specialized members,

I am asked about the availability of a book in the English language about the old Nurnburgring. Does anybody among you know such a book he dares to recommand?
It must be in English, regrettably, a German book is of no value in this case

Thanks for time and attention.

All that comes to mind is Cyril Posthumus' book "German Grand Prix". But that only goes up to 1965. And mainly about the race rather than the course.

Hello Henri, what about 'Kings of the Nurburgring' by the late Chris Nixon. Excellent book.

The two mentioned above are the only books available in English, although, as Vitesse noted, Posthumus' "The German Grand Prix" is not stricktly about the Nürburgring. "Kings Of The Nürburgring" is fine but far from exhaustive.

There are some books listed here on this Nurburgring link which lists some DVD's and books:


... und am Wochenende Ringkampf is the first book mentioned in the History section, and is available in two languages, English and German. I havnt personally read the book so cant comment on content
