Schumacher to drive F1 car around historic Nurburgring Nordschleife

Published

Seven time world champion Michael Schumacher will complete a demonstration lap of the Germany’s historic Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit in a 2011 Mercedes F1 car on 19 May.

Last season the Formula 1 veteran retired from the sport, and he wants to use the lap to say thank you to German fans for their loyal support during his F1 career.

“I have a lot of fond memories of the Nurburgring and am really looking forward to giving fans and friends from my home town of Kerpen – which is quite close to the Nurburgring – something to remember as they see me drive by,” Schumi said.

“But it will be a fantastic experience for me too, driving along the Nordschleife in a state-of-the-art Formula One Silver Arrow, particularly in view of the fact that the Silver Arrow’s legend began here.

“Posting a lap in a modern Silver Arrow on the most beautiful and most testing circuit in the world, what a brilliant mix – it’s every motor racing driver’s dream!”
