Nurburgring - Caracciola Karussell

Hey all!

 

Just been having a quick run around on the Nurburgring and many times I have noticed the writing on the track at the Carousel corner, my favourite part of the track. So I went back to the corner and took some pictures of the writing and translated them using Google Translate and some of my German GCSE knowledge. Some interesting stuff written on this corner!

 

First let me tell you about the Carousel corner by giving you some info from Wikipedia:

Caracciola Karussell

 Although being one of the slower corners on the Nordschleife, Karussell is perhaps one of its most iconic. One of two berm-style, banked corners, the entrance to the corner is blind, although Juan Manuel Fangio is reputed to have advised a young driver to "aim for the tallest tree"; a feature that was also built into the rendering of the circuit in the Gran Turismo 4 video game as well as Grand Prix Legends. The combination of a recognisable corner, slow moving cars, and the variation in viewing angle as cars rotate around the banking mean that this is one of the circuit's most popular locations for photographers. Named for Rudolf Caracciola who reportedly made the corner his own by hooking the inside tyres into a drainage ditch. As more concrete was uncovered and more competitors copied him, the trend took hold. At a later reconstruction, the corner was remade with real concrete banking, as it remains to this day.

 

Anyway now you know a bit about it let me show you my findings...

The one below is quite an interesting one! 'Mich Hart' when translated in to english means 'Me Hard'. Make of it what you will!

This one below is definatly my favourite. I laughed so hard when I translated it.

Für Weicheier means 'For Wimps'! As you can tell the arrow is obviously telling you that the outside of the corner is for the less daring of you!

Love it! Especially the last one.

I heard that PD had to remove all the profanity on the track, such as giant phallus's and the like.

In the last series of TopGear they highlighted a picture of a massive "man sausage" that someone had painted onto the track. Not sure if that's still there, but it isn't in GT5 :D

Lol! I might have to go around 'the ring' a few more times and find more graffiti on the track. Who knows what I might find!

Hey all!

 

I am intrigued to know if anyone else has had a go around the Nurburgring and found any more 'interesting' finds?

I've seen the bit with AVE IT written in huge letters. It's somewhere between the two banked corners with the grey concrete patches.
