Heidfeld to take on Nurburgring’s Nordschleife

Heidfeld to take on Nurburgring’s Nordschleife


20 March 2007

BMW Sauber’s Nick Heidfeld will make history in April, becoming the first driver in over 30 years to tackle the Nurburgring’s Nordschleife track in a Formula One car. Heidfeld’s run round the German circuit in an F1.07 will be the highlight event during a day of festivities, on April 28, celebrating BMW’s contribution to motorsport.

"This day is our way of saying thank-you to the fans for their support,” explained BMW Sauber team principal Mario Theissen. “The Formula One car's laps of the Nordschleife will be the highlight of a day devoted to BMW Motorsport. Nick's demonstration will not be about setting records, but a tribute to a unique race track - one which is inextricably linked to the heritage of BMW Motorsport."

Up to 25,000 spectators are expected to attend the BMW Sauber event, which will also feature an exhibition of BMW racing cars and autograph sessions with members of the BMW Sauber team and drivers from the FIA World Touring Car Championship. Fans will also get the chance to be driven round the circuit in the BMW M5 ‘Ring Taxi’.

The Nordschleife last played host to a Grand Prix in 1976, when Niki Lauda’s famous accident prompted authorities to remove it from the Formula One calendar on safety grounds.
