Driving the Nürburgring


So. You want to experience the Nürburgring. The biggest, baddest, most complex track ever made. Often referred to as the Green Hell, this track takes no prisoners and demands respect from amateur and professional alike. Feeling a bit nervous? That's the effect of the Nürburgring already taking hold. Not sure where to start? Then read on for a run down of the ways you can experience this formidable circuit with RSRNurburg.

What is the Nürburgring?

Before you can experience the track - you need to know what it is you're getting into. Many people don't know that the Nürburgring is actually made up of two circuits - the long "Nordschleife" (Nord-shly-fuh) and the shorter Formula One "Grand Prix" Track. Most people are thinking about the Nordschleife when they want to drive the Nürburgring.

Where is the Nürburgring?

The Nürbugring is not located in Nuremburg! This is a common mistake, as the names are very similar! If you make the mistake of going to the wrong city - then you may find yourself over 4 hours drive in the wrong direction! The Nürburgring is located near the city of Nürburg (Also written as Nuerburg). This is less than 2 hours drive from Frankfurt am Main, and about an hour and a half from the City of Cologne, quite near to the city of Koblenz.

What ways can I experience the circuit?

We offer a few different ways to experience the Nürburgring, depending on your goals and what you want to get out of your visit. Read on for an explanation and to see what option suits you the best!
