Pioneering spirits were riding a wave in the early summer of 1927: The world had just finished applauding the transatlantic flight by Charles Lindbergh when the next premiere was celebrated in the Eifel region – a milestone in the annals of motor racing: The opening of Nürburgring!
Today this racetrack with its (in)famous North Loop, the 'Green Hell', can look back on 90 years of sporting history. Nine decades that are replete with legendary drivers, vehicles and events. A history to which Mercedes-Benz has contributed many unforgettable chapters. Which made it a matter of honour for the Stuttgart-based brand to show a major presence at the official birthday celebrations for Nürburgring.
