Long Description:
Der Norisring ist ein sogenannter Stadtkurs, d.h. er findet auf gesperrten Strassen statt. Außerhalb des Rennens ist nur die historische Zeppelintribühne zu besichtigen. Am 18. Mai 1947 fand hier erstmals ein Motorradrennen statt. Nürnberg war damals Sitz zahlreicher Motorradhersteller wie Hecker, Mars, Triumph, Victoria, Hercules und Zündapp. Ab 1948 fanden auch Autorennen statt, heute vor allem Rennen der DTM.
