Lap the Nurburgring

About this Adventure


Fact File:
Duration: 5 hours
Price: 469 GBP



Push your car to the limits on this legendary circuit.

Germany’s Nurburgring is legendary among racing drivers for it difficulty, number of corners and its sheer length. It is also open for amateurs to drive round, no race license, no experience and no race modifications are needed. You simply turn up, buy a card for a lap and off you go.

This track really isn’t for the faint-hearted, the length and number of corners mean it takes years to learn the track properly and on your first laps you have no idea which section is coming next and with everything from expensive super cars to family saloons lapping the track you don’t know what car you’ll meet next either.

Once you start to get used to the track you can start to take in what is happening round you, this incredibly dangerous piece of track, unfortunately a few people die here each year, is surrounded by fields. The juxtaposition of the supreme danger of the track, we think this is probably one of the most dangerous adventures in the world, and the peace and safety of the surrounding area is striking. Don’t spend too much time thinking about it though, you’ll need all your wits for the driving!

Q) Is my car or bike insured whilst I’m on the Nurburgring?
A) Your insurance may or may not cover driving the circuit on a public day. If in doubt please contact your insurer.

Q) How do I pay for my booking?
A) We accept payment by cheque/bank transfer/credit/debit cards. For Nurburgring Organised Tours (including the Nurburgring 100) a £150 deposit is required (per person) and the balance is payable 6 weeks before the event. For all other services including ‘self drive’ packages, car rentals and trackday packages we accept payment in full upon booking.

Q) Do I need European accident and breakdown insurance when driving my own car?
A) YES. No matter how old or new your car is there is always the chance that it may let you down. You MUST have European breakdown cover as a condition of touring with us.

Also if your car spills fluids on the track which results in an accident you WILL be blamed for the accident. Do make sure your car is in tip top mechanical condition before leaving.
