There are a lot of race tracks in the world. Some are better than others and then there are those that are legends in themselves. Below are what we think are the top 5 race tracks in the world.
- Nurburgring – The Nurburgring is one of the best known tracks in the world. It is one of the toughest tracks in the entire world and anybody can still drive it for a fee.

- Circuit de la Sarthe – The Circuit de la Sarthe is the race track that is used for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It is one of those tracks that many racing fans all over the world know the names of various portions of the track.
- Laguna Seca – The Northern California race track is one of the tougher tracks in the world. Much of its difficulty is because of its elevation changes including a large drop that creates a blind corner.

Project 50 Takes Three Porsche 911s On The Track
This year marks the 50 years of the Porsche 911 and one of the celebrations of the rear-engined sports car is called Project 50. The idea is to take two classic 911s as well as a new 991 and tour the racing tracks of Europe. The classic cars were featured in some historic races and both cars took laps on each track.
This video shows highlights of Project 50. It follows Gordon Robertson as well as his daughter as they visit nine different circuits over the course of three days. There is also footage from some special guests, including future Porsche LMP1 driver Mark Webber and Top Gear’s the Stig (feel free to put in your own some say… in the comments; but all we know is he’s called the Stig).
The best part of Project 50 was that it also raised money for cancer research.
Check out the video and then let us know what you think of it in the comments below.
