Formula 1 Nürburgring Nordschleife 1975 Video

I am always on the look out for good historic video clips at the Nürburgring, this was the same year that Niki Lauda would set the lap record of 6:58.6 over the 14 mile track.

The race was a year before Lauda’s infamous crash on the northloop, he had been trying to get the other drivers to boycott the nordschleife due to safety concerns and lack of run off.

He suffered serious burns and amazed the motorsport fraternity by returning back behind the wheel some 6 weeks later.

The 1975 Formula 1 was won by Carlos Reutemann after Nicki Lauda lost pole with a puncture and ended third.

James Hunt Retired from the race to a wheel Hub Failure.
