but to little fanfare, and I thought it deserved more of a mention after I did some e-digging on some French, Belgian and German websites. LiamC also mentioned it has been mentioned on Top Gear.
It appears that, the Nurburgring (famous F1 circuit) in Germany intends to make a massive investment in a number of new areas in the coming few years.
One of these appears to be a Maurer Sohne launched coaster, reaching incredible speeds of 215km/h, which is over 130mph and, most importantly of all, a faster speed than Kingda Ka.
I find this news both exciting, yet odd at the same time.
