Drive the Nürburgring - Track Days
RSRNurburg is pleased to offer you private trackday access to both the Nürburgring Nordschleife and the Nürburgring Grand Prix Track. Track Days are private events held on the circuit that require pre-registration and an entry fee, but hold many advantages over a standard Public Driving (Touristenfahrten) Session.
From full use of the circuit, to relaxed restrictions on car regulations, these days offer many reasons to join in over a standard public session - including lower numbers, a strict no bus and motorcycle policy and full personal track instruction!
On these days you can bring your own car, or hire one of our specially prepared track cars to use on the circuit. Also included is technical assistance and advice on set up and ideal lines, and optional hire of RaceNavigator Video and Data Systems. Our professional instruction is available to you regardless of whether you choose to bring your own car or rent one of ours.
If you are interested in renting one of our cars for a dedicated track day, take a look in our car garage by clicking here. If not, you can just purchase your track day entry through us.

Public Touristenfahrten Sessions Vs. Trackdays

|• Any road legal car can go on (Vans, busses, station wagons)||• People use more track focused cars.|
|• Motorbikes allowed on track at the same time||• Cars only|
|• Closures happen often, and can take hours to clean up||• Closures still happen, but rarely. Clean up happens quickly and efficiently.|
|• You can only do one lap, then you have to stop for the barriers / come off the track.||• You can keep lapping|
|• You can't use the whole Döttinger Höhe Straight||• Full use of the 2.8km long straight!|

What Other Tracks Can I Drive?
The challenge, the excitement, the ‘Green Hell’. Arguably the most famous track in the world; the Nürburgring Nordschleife (“Nord-shly-fuh”) is 21km (13 miles) long, has over 150 corners and an elevation change of over 300m
(1000 ft). This ‘old style’ of track has varying cambers, bumps and short run-offs, making it a true challenge to drive. Nestled amongst the Eifel mountains, the Nürburgring is less than 2 hours drive from Frankfurt city and an hour and a half from the city of Cologne.
Nürburgring GP Track
This fascinating 5.1km race track provides all the comfort of a modern track: long run-off zones, big gravel traps and multiple configurations. The track also hosts its share of different events throughout the year - from the Formula One, DTM and Truck Grand Prix, to the Old Timer Classics, Rad am Ring 24h Cycle Race, Fisherman’s Friend Strongman Run and ‘insane’ rock music festivals!
Nürburgring VLN Configuration
On the occasional, very special day, the two Nürburgring tracks will be joined into what is known as the VLN configuration, named after the VLN Race series that descends on the track 10 times a year. This creates a 26km loop, of both the old part of the track (The Nordschleife), and the new part (the Grand Prix or Formula One) of the circuit.
Spa Francorchamps - 120km from the 'Ring
Most people don't realise that the other "best track in the world" is only an hours’ drive away, through the most beautiful regions Germany and Belgium have to offer. Those areas are the Eifel mountains in Germany and the Ardennes in Belgium. Arrive at the historic Spa circuit and prepare to be blown away. All the safety and space of a modern F1 circuit, but thrown over the topography like a ribbon of tarmac over the swooping valleys.

Hockenheim - 214km from the 'Ring
The 'other' home of the German Formula One Grand Prix, the Hockenheimring is only an hour from Frankfurt Main or two hours from the Nürburgring. Another historical track, this 4.5km circuit combines slow, tight turns and exciting fast turns, high speed sections, twisty chicanes and great overtaking zones!
