The racetrack sculpture depicts the layout of Nürburgring Nordschleife located in Nürburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. It is considered to be the world’s most demanding road course, the Nürburging’s Nordschleife (literally Nürburging’s Norther Loop) twists and turns, rises and falls for 12.9 miles through the dense Eifel Mountains. Dubbed as the "Green Hell," by Jackie Stewart, northern ring boasts an elevation gain/loss of about 1,000 feet per lap and many of its turns are steeped in motorsports lore. Constructed between 1925-2, the Nürburgring originally consisted of two circuits – the 14.1 mile Nordschleife and a 7.7 mile Südschleife (Southern Loop) which were occasionally combined to form a whopping 17.6 mile track. The Nordschleife, however, was the focal point of the facility and played host to German Grand Prix Formula One and 1000K sports car races through the 1970s when safety makeover was implemented. The track witnessed life-threating accident of Nicki Lauda in 1976 German Grand Prix after which the hosting rights were given to Hockenheim. However, the German Grand Prix returned to the Nürburgring after the Nordschleife’s start-finish area and much of the Südschleife were pulled down to make way for a modern circuit – the 3.2 mile Grand Prix Strecke in 1982-84.
