Circuit Update: Hockenheimring

The Hockenheimring page has been updated to show the various layouts over the decades. Although Google are yet to update the imagery to show the new layout, I recently discovered the older configurations that originally ran through the towns. The 1929 and 1938 layouts were abandoned when the main road (North to South in image) was built, which was when the new stadium section was designed and implemented and the lap became much shorter (12.045km down to 6.769km). The chicanes were added later to improve safety as a result of the tragic loss of Jim Clark.
