Stewards were forced to close the world’s best-known racetrack – after vandals painted this 30ft PENIS on the tarmac.
Hundreds of Brits head to the Nurburgring in Germany each week to test their skills on the 12.9 mile racetrack.
But those who made the 800-mile plus round trip to the track on Sunday were left waiting after a cheeky group painted the giant phallus on the course.
Officials feared the ‘artwork’ could put the high-speed motorists off so a specialist team spent 90 minutes treating the graffiti before re-opening the track to the public.
Sam Preston, from Bristol, made the trip to the course on Sunday when the incident happened.
He said: “Me and a friend drove down from the UK to the ‘Ring for a weekend of driving.
“The weather was perfect, meaning a lot of cars were queuing for a 10am opening time.
“At around 11am the barriers were still not opening, so we decided to see if we could find the cause of the continued closure.
“About halfway around the track we found a group of track marshals and police gathered around this huge white graffiti penis.
“The officials didn’t seem to find it as humourous as the bystanders – and swiftly called for a paint removal machine to be brought to the scene.”
Motorists pay €26 to drive a lap of the track, which was recently put up for sale for around €125 million.
