The "Green Hell" gets an environmental management system


The 1990's were all about change. Motor sports remained the supporting pillar at the ring, however Nürburgring acted even more strongly as a leader in the region for economic development and tourism. And, a new star was born. On October 1, 1995, Michael Schumacher, as the first German ever, won a course of the Formula 1 World Championship on Nürburgring. The crowd cheers him on from the to date most state of the art grandstand in the world. Approx. 5,000 spectators can be seated in the Mercedes grandstand. In addition, 2 VIP areals are integrated.

And even when it comes to the environment, Nürburgring takes a leading role. As early as in 1996 a progressive environmental management system was established. Nürburgring was certified as per the EU Eco-Audit Directive. One year later, in 1997, the new state of the art Medical Center was dedicated. In 1998, additional new construction projects were underway and completed: The new access road to the Nordschleife was opened, the BILSTEIN grandstand was completely remodeled and the first non-portable video screen ever at a racetrack was dedicated. Once again, Nürburgring was in pole position. The indoor amusement park Nürburgring Adventure World tapped into new visitor potential, celebrating its grand opening in May 1998. In 1999, a state of the art waste water treatment plant is built, for which Nürburgring received yet another prize that very same year, the "Environment Award 1999".
