Named after a plant nursery patronised by the Counts of Nurburg, it was this super fast section where, during the 1000km race in 1959, Jack Fairman spun into a ditch. Fairman was expected to drive only two laps before handing the wheel back to teammate Stirling Moss but his ditch-bound adventure lost the pair their lead. Fairman was determined, however, to get back on track and lifted the Aston Martin back on to the road. Moss, meanwhile, assuming that the race was over for them, packed up his kit back but just as he was about to leave he heard a voice shouting ‘he’s coming in’. Fairman appeared in the pits, the pair resumed racing and finished on the podium.
“For anyone with an interest in some beautifully illustrated quirky facts about the TT races and the bare facts on the female form it is a must” Murray Walker
