Illustration for article titled The Top Five Mistakes To Avoid On The Nürburgring

Planning a trip to the Nürburgring at some point in your life, but don’t want to end up in a compilation of YouTube fails? Listen to this wise advice from the folks at RSR Nürburg, a ringtool rental company which probably made this video in hopes of keeping some of their rentals out of the wall.

The worst mistake you can make? Showing off at Brünnchen YouTube Corner, of course. The spectator area is notorious for Feats of Dumb.


Study up on how to drive the track, and override your instincts to drive the line or breathe off the throttle in certain places, and you’ll be fine. It may technically be a one-way public toll road, but it’s really a race track, and demands all the attention you’d give to any other track.

The last thing you want to do is end up in the latest Nürburgring oops compilation on FailBlog.
