And there's one stunt that convinced us to zoom in, namely one that shows the driver of a construction van going all out on the circuit. The man seems to be willing to pass an Audi, with the shenanigan being caught on camera in the Adenauer Forst corner.

Keep in mind that passing is only allowed on the left during Touristenfahrten (Tourist Days) events and with the van occupying that space, it's no surprise that a queue was formed behind it - you'll find this adventure at the 3:58 point of the video.

Then again, traffic is one of the major factors that can cause disruptions during public Nordschleife sessions, so one must always be prepared for such situations.

As for other factors of the sort, these involve the capricious Ring weather, with many corners becoming traps in the wet (Kallenhard is perhaps the best example of this).

However, the most dangerous aspect comes from the fluid spills that occur on the track, with the unpredictable nature and the serious effect of these incidents sometimes leaving drivers without an escape plan.

Nevertheless, here's an example of an aficionado who managed to avoid crashing when coming across such a slippery point, with the man taking swift action to avoid a potential disaster.

Speaking of the Nurburgring, the German circuit is currently undergoing a series of changes for the 2019 season.

However, the track officials have only released a few images of the changes and we're looking forward to receiving more details on the matter.
