Nothing gave me more satisfaction than to win at the Nürburgring and yet, I was always afraid.

Jackie Stewart

This is a map of the classic Nurburgring.

Originally, the track featured four configurations: the 28.265 km long Gesamtstrecke ("Whole Course"), which consisted of the 22.810 km Nordschleife ("North Loop"), and the 7.747 km Südschleife ("South Loop"). As well as a 2.281 km warm-up loop called Zielschleife ("Finish Loop"), around the pit area.

In 1907, the first Eifelrennen race was held on the one-off Taunus circuit, made up of public roads starting between the towns of Wehrleim and Saalburg just north of Frankfurt. In the early 1920s, ADAC Eifelrennen races were held on the twisty Nideggen public road circuit near Cologne and Bonn. Sometime around 1925, the construction of a dedicated race track was proposed just south of the Nideggen circuit around the ancient castle of the town of Nürburg, following the examples of Italy's Monza and Targa Florio courses, and Berlin's AVUS, yet with a different character. The layout of the circuit in the mountains was similar to the Targa Florio event, one of the most important motor races at that time. The original Nürburgring was to be a showcase for German automotive engineering and racing talent. Construction of the track, designed by the Eichler Architekturbüro from Ravensburg (led by architect Gustav Eichler), began in September 1925.

The track was completed in spring of 1927, and the ADAC Eifelrennen races were continued there. The first races to taking place on 18 June 1927
