KINGS OF THE NÜRBURGRING
A HISTORY 1925 – 1983
By Chris Nixon
The finest road circuit the world has ever seen where only the greatest drivers were able to deliver the most extraordinary performances. Chris Nixon has selected 14 of those drivers as his “Kings of the Nurburgring”. Men who mastered its roller-coaster path with several outstanding drives, or sometimes just the one, to earn the title, Ringmeister, during the years 1927 to 1983. The Nurburgring career of each driver is examined in detail, drawing on the race reports and feature articles of the time, autobiographies, biographies and, in the case of the seven surviving Kings, their personal reminiscences of the fabulous circuit they made their own.
