This is arguably the most popular most demanding and also longest track for road-car track-days, magazine tests, prototype testing and race events. Originally, the track featured four track configurations: the 28.265 km long Gesamtstrecke ("Whole Course"), which in turn consisted of the 22.810 km Nordschleife ("Northern Loop"), and the 7.747 km Sudschleife ("Southern Loop"). There also was a 2.281 km warm-up loop called Zielschleife, around the pits area. Between 1982 and 1983 the start-finish area was demolished to create a new GP-Strecke, and this is currently used for all major and international racing events. However, the Nordschleife is still in use; nicknamed The Green Hell by Jackie Stewart, it is widely considered the toughest and most demanding purpose-built race track in the world.

Track lengths and timing

Not all of the following lap times are comparable. A full lap of the Nordschleife, bypassing the modern GP track, is 20.832 km (12.944 mi) long. Most laps are completed 200 metres (656 ft) shorter for safety reasons. Full uninterrupted flying laps can only be done in closed sessions and race events like Castrol-Haugg-Cup.

During the industry testing sessions in which sport auto records its "Supertest", the track can not be traveled at full speed past "Tribüne 13" (T13, grandstand 13) in order to allow safe access from the old exit/entrance there. Thus, sport auto Supertests cover only about 20.6 km (12.8 mi), which in average yields a 7 s shorter lap time compared to a full lap.

There are 5 sections on the 20,600 m (68,000 ft) long Supertest-Nordschleife:

* The first is 3,850 m (2.4 mi)
* The second is 4,235 m (2.6 mi)
* The third is 4,825 m (3.0 mi)
* The fourth is 4,846 m (3.0 mi)
* The fifth is 2,844 m (1.8 mi)
* The total is 20,600 m (12.800 mi)

Some lap times are even claimed to have been done during tourist driving sessions. Because it is forbidden to race on tourist days as it is very dangerous to drive fast among the general traffic one should not try to measure the lap time on a tourist day. As the full main straight cannot be driven at speed due to the modern exit/entrance there, these laps are usually timed "bridge to gantry", which is only 19.1 km (11.9 mi) and thus about 30 seconds shorter. Additionally, there are two speed limits (one in Breitscheid, and one on "Doettinger Hoehe") on tourist days, which also impacts the lap time.

In one of those 370Z reviews, there were whispers that the 370Z completed the lap in the high sevens....

I'd be wondering if a 370Z (without major cooling mods) made it around the track without overheating. Heck it (apparently) can't go 10min into an HPDE session without going into limp mode...350Z is a different animal...works good on track. And I'm very sorry to have to say that...hopefull I'm wrong...maybe if it can do it in 8:00 or so heehee, and just sneak in before it gets hot...

Comparing each of those to each other is just pure bench/magazine racing. Conditions obviously varied in each individual run. And some of those were a one-attempt run.

They do give you a ballpark reference/range though.

even though the cayman has 320hp compared to the 370 332, I don't think it will beat the cayman.
