The Nuremberg trials are a biannual month-long motor racing competition held in the German city of Nuremberg. Competitors vie for the title of Unführer and a traditional kitty of Bavarian beer and weißwurst, by accumulating points in an increasingly ridiculous series of racing challenges. The competition was also the basis for the Hanna-Barbera cartoon Wacky Racers.

Nurembergring

edit Nürnbergring: origins and traditions

The Old City of Nuremburg was surrounded with a 21 kilometre moat in the twelvth century by Emperor Conrad III, who was patron of the Holy Roman Empire's first (and last) cross-country giant eel racing league. Keeping enormous carnivorous fish near a major city was not without its critics and, following several mysterious child disappearances, the moat was eventually filled in and converted into the Empire's first (and last) cross-country brown bear half-marathon track.

Sanity eventually prevailed, and the track was used to race captured Jews until motor car racing became popular in the 1920s.
