Maybe it is good economy to make sure that the Nordschleife not is closed as much as it is... Lets hope I'm wrong.
Next season will tell.

This spring/summer want to take a week of and go there during the week and train a bit.
I might join the Scuderia training this season in order to learn it a bit more.

I cant wait to drive there again?
I am picking up the new car March 29th. Not many track dates available yet, but if you know of any events I can pre-register this early, clue me in!
The car needs to be back at the factory June 28th.

I'll let you know as soon as I get info.

I'm guessing you keep better track on the events than me

It is GT-car, maybe the most desirable?

I wouldn't mind one :-)

Regarding The Ring and opening hours we can already now guess when there will be Touristdriving.

The two big Nordschleife race events are RCN and VLN and the dates for these races are official:

A VLN Touristdriving weekend typically looks like this:
Friday: Close
Saturday: Open evening
Sunday: Open All day

An RCN Touristdriving weekend typically looks like this:
Friday: Open evening
Saturday: Open evening
Sunday: Open All day

During the N24H race week there is normally no Touristdriving.


16.03 VLN Test
23.03 VLN1
30.03 RCN Test
06.04 RCN1
13.04 VLN2
27.04 VLN3
04.05 RCN2
18.05 RCN3, N24H Qualification race weekend
20.06 RCN4, N24H Weekend
06.07 RCN5
13.07 VLN4
03.08 RCN6 This is not at The Ring but at Spa
03.08 VLN5
24.08 RCN7
07.09 VLN6
21.09 RCN8 3h race
28.09 VLN7
05.10 RCN9
12.10 VLN8
26.10 VLN9


We also know that there normally is a pretty busy weekend during the Easter holiday: I guess it is 18,19,20,21 of April.
The Friday in the Easter holiday is kalled Karfreitag in Germany but in Nürburg it is Carfreitag. An extremely busy day in the region with crazy amount of traffic around the track.
Normally the track itself is rather good but it is very difficult to get to and from Nürburg this day.

Thx.
I would not get out to the track on Karfreitag.
Drivers are mainly under influence of endorphine after long winter. It gets scary-

Nice, of course, but I still prefer this one:

I LOVE it since I have seen it in Le Mans, in 1998.

Good to know if you do Touristdriving at the Ring:


The Nürburgring Nordschleife is a race track in Germany which opens to the public at times advertised on the Nurburgring website. The Germans call this touristenfahrten - literally meaning tourist driving.

The General Conditions for driving on the Nordschleife (March 2016) state that racing and speed record attempts are forbidden. Overtaking is on the left and you must keep to the right when not overtaking. The police will investigate collisions and prosecute where blame is found.

Driving the "ideal line" is no defence if you are hit from behind. The Koblenz Higher Regional Court has about 60 decisions which have one major point in common; namely that a driver failed to comply with the General Conditions in circumstances where he was obliged to keep to the right hand side and not allowed to take the "ideal line". As a rule, judges will reduce the total compensation awarded to the "ideal line" driver by 60-75%.

My German is not so good: Doesn't the driver excuse himself for not driving that fast?
