i hope this is just whoever is making that movie trying to get publicity, it seems patently ridiculous to me.

What movie, Koenigsegg one:1 wanted to make a lap record (and record it with video) and one week before the scheduled date they introduced this ban. Also it is not a publicity stunt because after that crash they introduced speed limits on parts of the track, but now they are baning lap time recording and attempts (even if you have whole track for your car only). And yes, it is pretty rediculous, speed limiting race track and banning lap recording on it O.o

If it's not on the official Nurburgring website, then I doubt it's true.

Ps. The Nismo GT-R crash was from the 24H of Nurburgring Race if I'm not mistaken, not a street car that's for damn sure.

Its probably just until after the court case so they can be seen as proactive after the death.

I cant see them killing the golden goose

In my opinion banning spectators on that critical (or all) parts of the track until they are secured more is enough. This kind of defeat the purpose of the very track.

edit: soo, project cars should add Koenigsegg one:1 to the game so we can do this lap record :D
