Video Documentary: 1000KM Nürburgring 1983 “The last Ringmeisters”

Submitted by on January 28, 2012

Qualifying for the 1983 1000km of Nürburgring and a young Stefan Bellof sets a pole-position time around the infamous Nordschleife of six minutes eleven seconds. He is five seconds ahead of second-place man Jochen Mass.

During the race he sets the fastest lap – a time of six minutes and twenty five seconds.

Fast forward to 2012 and both times still stand as unofficial and official records for traversing the twenty kilometre long Nordschleife really quite quickly indeed.

These were truly exciting days and the combination of the danger and thrill of the Nürburgring Nordschleife with the wild, rambunctious and impossibly fast Group C cars captures them perfectly. Sit back and enjoy ‘The Last Ringmeisters’, which follows the ’83 running of the 1000 kilometers of Nürburgring.
