The Norisring in Nuremberg is the home round for Audi and one of the season’s highlights with high-speed racing and a spectacular location.
Street fight 

The 2.3-kilometer track between the Dutzendteich lake and the soccer stadium is the only city street circuit on the DTM calendar and provides close action on the narrow layout that is surrounded by concrete walls and barriers, which leave very little room for mistakes. With it being Audi Sport’s home race, many “Audians” attend the event and provide even more support for the Audi drivers and the team as a whole.

Race facts 

Despite having only a few corners, the circuit has a lot to offer. The tarmac has many bumps and the braking zones are very important at the end of the long straights. In addition, parts of the track are used as public roads, and because of this, it is an evolving surface for which you have to readjust to the grip level available during each race weekend.

To get to the front, a car set-up that is powerful on the brakes and generates lots of mechanical grip is needed, whilst still having top speed in mind.
