RingRacer begins testing again at Germany’s Nurburgring racetrack

RingRacer, a coaster at the Nurburgring racetrack in Germany has begun testing as shown by this reverse POV video.  The coaster was built by S&S Worldwide back in 2009 and features nearly 4,000 feet of track and a launch that is suppose to be in excess of 130 m.p.h., but do to multiple problems with the launch system, the ride was closed only a few short months after being open.  Due to these issues, the ride is currently running and being tested at 105 m.p.h in 2.5 seconds.  Hopefully they can get the problems worked out and get this baby cranked up to the 135 m.p.h. it was designed for.

Officials are hoping to have the ride back open by July 7 during a Formula One race at the German track.
