Here are a couple pictures of the track and the museum. This is a track with a lot of history and a lot of action. There are a number of auto manufacture's with Test Centers in Nurburg (BMW, Jaguar, etc) and many bringing new cars still under development to test.
I saw the new 2008 Nissan Skyline GTR on the streets in Nurburg and of course both times I couldn't get my camera out in time to take a picture. AWD, 473hp/440tq and its coming to the USA.
