    I think I know where it is, but I unfortunately do not know the names. Though.. it depends on if the photo is facing the direction of travel or not.

    If the photo is looking backwards down the track (you'd see the front of a car if it was in the photo):
    It looks like it's the first real tight corner, the driving line usually tells you to downshift to 2nd. It's a tight left hander followed by an uphill right. I think it's towards the end of the first section of the track on the AMG events.

    disclaimer: I could be totally wrong :)

    Definitely a nice photo.

    From this drawing, I think it's the left-right kink coming down from Kallenhard, about a third of the way from Kallenhard to Wehrseifen.

    I agree with FW, this is looking backwards, and you'd see the front of the car.

    I'd ignore the graffiti. Who knows when PD modeled the track, when that photo was taken, and how much has changed in between.
    Unless their is some iconic and famous bit of graffiti in that shot I don't know about.

    Look up one of those side by side videos showing the ring in real life and in GT and see what you can tell from that. They usually show a good viewpoint and the whole track.

    Yes, I think that's the exact same curve as the OP's post, looking the other direction, after Kallenhard.

    I'm running B-spec 24h Nurburgring now and I'm 99% sure it's right before the 16th km mark I think it's around Pflanzgarten I

    EDIT: just checked it again and it's the Brünnchen curve (the top right corner on the picture posted above)

    its around the 2nd box upfrom the main straight if you go round the track in reverse.

    I wanted to take a pic of my MK1 Golf Next to the VW GTI Graffiti ;)

    If I'm not mistaken, I believe that this piece of Graffiti is on the track it the game. Making it much easier to find.

    I'm going to take a guess and say Klostertal, because I think I can see Karussell. By the way that is definitely I sweet picture.

    But I drive this track in real life once every 2 weeks so it's not really fair ;)

    Edit: added map
    Right side of the map, you can park your car there and make some pretty nice pictures.
