Fact Or Fiction

When my first search didn't give me the results I wanted I labeled this a fictional track. Duh. And no one called me on it. Duh. I wrote: "A real course in Hockenheim is 2.842 miles and consists of 17 turns. It is named Hockenheimring". Then, after driving some laps, I decided to do a little more research and found this map at Wikipedia. What I think happened the first time is that I saw a map that was turned over (such as this one) without any lines showing the old track and I just didn't make the connection. So although this longer version is no longer in use (the forest section is in fact covered up) it does not belong with the fictionals; I would classify it as the historical version of Hockenheim.

Radt:

So it's a hysterical monument now? Kinda like you LK. They should call it "Soggy Bottoms" and it would really relate. C'mon, I kid! Now yer not giving me a ride for another month? Man, yer a sensitive ol' bastid. Look, ya gotta go before ya leave the house. I'm kidding again! Two months? Well I might as well go for three, ya raging racoon. Yer gonna be a Dutchman like yer dad. Yer German ancestors lived in Prussia. Like where Warsaw is now. Know what that makes ya? You think because yer German that you can race every track in Germany but I gotta little tip for ya. So can 50-million Germans; the other 30-million are either too young or don't care.
