Now that the Nurburgring finally has a new owner and we can all hope on a stable future for it, we’ve found something that serves as a pretty nice tribute to the famous track. We are talking about a photo comparison revealing how little the Nordschleife has changed since 1967.
A few days ago, we showed you a series of Nurburgring shots from 1967 and now the crew over at bridgetogantry have matched these with their 2014 correspondents. We’ll remind you that the original pictures were shot on 35mm film by Jack Moody, an ex Porsche engineer. The images look really sharp for their age. As for the contemporary shots, these were taken from recent race practice sessions.

You don’t even need to pay attention in order to notice the track’s layout has mostly remained unchanged. It looks like the contemporary heroes we drive receive the same treatment as many of their predecessors. The staights, the Karussell, they all look like old friends who are happy to meet new and new generations of car aficionados.

The only major change appears to have taken place around the track. Thus, while the “Hell” is almost the same, the “Green” has aged over the years. You can clearly see the forest changing its state in the comparison.
