The Nurburgring, when seat belts really were optional extras

It’s no secret the Nurburgring is a car killer. Just search ‘Nurburgring’ on YouTube and you have a wealth of options to watch all kinds of super cars crashed by their ‘all the kit and no idea how to use it’ owners. But if you thought it was dangerous now imagine a time when the roads were full of cars which seat belts weren’t just optional to be worn in, they sometimes weren’t even supplied!

The result is drivers getting flung from cars which have somersaulted through the air, only for their owners to casually walk off in an awful attempt to style out their lack of talent.

Cue some strange 70s video game music and think about how lucky you are to have air bags.
