This was Nurbergring ca late 1950's / very early 60's. Does anyone know if this was just club racing? I wonder about the lights and rack.

Maybe it was a track day or BMW promo. No number plates make me think it wasn't a race.

I've seen a modern video of Hans Stuck wringing out a BMW race car on the Nurburgring that indicates the long road course is open to the public. It's like a toll road where you pays the toll, and go mix it up with 180 mph cars and bikes all running their own pace around the 'Ring.

BTW, I wish that video was available for download. Edit: OT, but Google found some versions of it. You can see the various Porsches and stuff briefly as Hans eats their lunch. It would be great to take a well tuned airhead for one lap around that course. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xvb...urburgrin_auto or go to http://www.bmwusa.com/standard/conte...eryvideos.aspx near the bottom of the page and go to Page 6 once again near the bottom of the page for the version with commentary by Hans Stuck as he drives.

So anyway, the road course may have been open back then as well.
