The 1927 to 1966 Nordschleife track version.
The old ‘Ring is the greatest road racing circuit in the world. With 14 miles and 176 corners, the Nordschleife is a never-ending succession of evocative turns and changing gradient. After the start, which is dominated by a castle overlooking Nurburg village, the cars race out into the mountains, to Flugplatz, Adenau Bridge, Karussel, Wippermann, Pflanzgarten, Tiergarten and so on. The Nurburgring’s organisers tried to keep it up to date over the years – resurfacing the track in 1957 and completely rebuilding large parts of it in 1970. But after Niki Lauda’s near fatal accident at Bergwerk in 1976, the CSI ruled that the circuit was no longer safe for Formula 1. Instead, government investment helped build a modern Grand Prix track at the old start/finish area. The result was an uninspiring "designed-by-computer" venue that suffers in comparison with the original. The old pits were replaced with a new complex, and a modern hotel now overlooks the startline. The circuit length was increased in 2002 by the introduction of a new infield loop after Turn 1. Thankfully for enthusiasts, the old circuit is still used for the annual Nurburgring 24 Hours.
50 x 70cm | 19 ¾ x 27 ½ "
This high-quality giclée print is produced on acid-free papers using archival inks to guarantee that they last a lifetime without fading or loss of colour.
The print includes a 4.5cm (1.77") white border around the illustration to allow for future framing and matting, if desired.
The print is delivered unframed but is ready to be framed in a 50 x 70cm frame.
The modern UV paper from Sihl (135g/m²) is bleached to a bright white and offers the perfect foundation for reproducing the original colours with remarkable richness. A matte coating ensures it is incredibly robust and resistant to changes in temperature and splashes of water.
My printer uses the most modern, super-wide-format printing system from HP. For this premium poster, he uses eight colours, rather than four; light magenta and cyan inks allow additional sharpness, improved resolution, and finer tonality in lighter image areas.
Whichever format you choose, the colours will be equally impressive, the grey balance will be completely neutral, and the contours extremely sharp. After printing, he hardens the inks six times using UV light to make your print resistant to external influences. It will be at its best for years to come.

The Hahnemühle FineArt Rag fine soft matte surface 308g/m² is one of the most robust papers from Hahnemühle. It is made of 100% cotton and has a matte surface. With its soft and fine texture, this paper is very versatile and is just as well suited to colour prints as it is to deep blacks and pure whites. The Hahnemühle FineArt Rag is an amazing paper for all kinds of images and for high pictorial depth.
Hahnemühle’s authentic art paper is regarded as top of the line. It is often used for exhibitions and limited-edition art prints.
A really beautiful paper, my favourite.
