The Nurburgring is without question the greatest race track ever built. At 17 miles, the track offered so many challenges to the drivers that it was impossible to conquer the course. Just surviving was often enough. The 14 mile Nordschleifie was used in 1969 when the race was won by the modern master of the ‘Ring, Jacky Ickx driving for Brabham. This poster by Michael Turner was used for several years thereafter. It shows John Surtees in a Ferrari leading the BRM of Graham Hill down the main straight with the famous Dunlop scoring tower in the background.
