I think there is a difference between the two. Nurburgring is being raced actively. But due to increased safety measures the number of fatalities has dropped tremendously over the years.Nonserviam85 wrote: ↑Wed Jun 06, 2018 2:38 pmThe only reason top drivers not participating is because sponsors and teams don't allow them to do so. I bet many of the top drivers would love to participate just like the old days when Isle of Man TT was part of the world championship. The Isle of Man resembles a lot to Nürburgring, it is just too dangerous to race by modern standards.Andres125sx wrote: ↑Tue Jun 05, 2018 7:56 amBecause nowadays nobody need to risk his life so blatantly to prove steely-nerved riding talent, high-speed concentration & memory skills
It´s more a matter of look at me people, I´m a macho man with no fear/brain
To demostrate talent there are much better scenarios, there´s a reason no top driver race at TT
Anycase I still admire them and would love to go there and watch a race sometime
Yet the Snaefell is claiming as many lives each year as it did at the beginning of last century.
I can understand that people want to race the circuit. But I cannot understand why the organisation does not do anything to make the circuit safer. It is not like for instance removing a few poles makes the racing less exciting.
