NitrOlympX 2012

My footage of the 2012 NitrOlympX at the Hockenheimring in Germany.

Though in 2012 weather and spectator numbers were splendid, unfortunately the track was NOT!

Due to a FIA rule concerning all their licenced road racing circuits AND its runoff areas all rubber, Drag Racing relevant chemicals etc. had to be removed in fall 2011 in order to keep the FIA licence for the upcoming German Formula 1 World Championship event in July 2012.

It was a little too thouroughly done and the tarmac surface was more or less destroyed.

The Hockenheim track crew worked their butts off in the weeks/days before the event, but the Quartermile did not come round by Saturday afternoon.

After three rounds of Pro Qualifying on Saturday including a Smokefest unseen for almost two decades and some bloodcurdling rides, the Drag Racing Gods dropped the hammer Sunday noon:

Except TM/D all Pro Car Classes cancelled.

It is said that the Hockenheim Quartermile will receive a new surface for the 28th NitrOlympX in August 2013.

Hope you enjoy the videos nonetheless.

Cheers - René
