Ahead of the Nürburgring 24-hour race which takes place this weekend, Volkswagen Motorsport has released a unique video clip of part of the world’s most difficult race track, aptly named the ‘Green Hell’. The Nordschleife of the Nürburgring, which was inaugurated in 1927, meanders up and down through the Eifel landscape â€" a maze of turns that will make the hearts of fans and drivers beat faster at the 24-hour race.

The whole ‘Green Hell’ is shown on a unique video clip, shot by a camera attached to the spoiler lip of the Scirocco GT24, barely 10 centimetres above the Tarmac. It reveals the Nordschleife in low-level flight, just the race track, the woods, the blue Eifel sky, and nothing else â€" in other words, not your typical ****pit perspective.

The 16:9 video can be viewed at

The driver of this lap was the Swede Jimmy Johansson, last year’s winner of the 2.0-litre turbo class in the Scirocco GT24, who will contest the 24-hours on the Nürburgring this weekend in one of the five Scirocco cars again. A second version shows the lap with picture-in-picture superimpositions of the ****pit work of the Volkswagen drivers.
