ring°racer is a launched roller coaster located at Nürburgring in Nürburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. The roller coaster was built as part of a new entertainment area at the race course. The ride was planned to be the worlds fastest roller coaster but ride operators had problems trying to get the ride to the correct speed. Unfortunately, they took to long and Formula Rossa took the record making it faster than the planned speed and never got the ride to the correct speed making it 99 mph than 135 mph. The ride was manufactured by S&S Worldwide and opened on October 31, 2013 after numerous delays. It closed on November 3 and remains standing but not operating. It is unknown if the ride will reopen.
