Unfortunately we have to cancel the Goodyear FIA ETRC test days on April 4/5 due to weather conditions. The race track at the Nürburgring is currently not passable due to snow, ice and slippery conditions. Due to the unclear weather situation and the long journey of our international teams, we have already decided to take this step today. We have also intensively searched for an alternative date, but to our regret the current race calendar does not allow this.

Nürburgring starts 2022 season with full calendar

17.03.2022

The Nürburgring kicks off the season. In 2022, the versatile event location will once again offer the entire event portfolio with engine sounds, guitar tones and endurance sports. Finally, the focus is back on the fan experience. At the ADAC TotalEnergies 24h-Nürburgring, the unique party atmosphere will return to the Green Hell for the 50th anniversary, and at Rock am Ring thousands of festival visitors will finally celebrate together again. Those who want to feel like a racing driver themselves this year are also in good hands at the Nürburgring. The training sessions for everyone with the new Formula 4 cars provide unique memories. Despite the different event formats, thrilling motorsport is still the focus at the legendary race track. The racing series and vehicles are characterised by an enormous variety. Impressive race trucks, such as at the ADAC Truck Grand Prix, are just as much a part of the experience as international top-class sport in the DTM or the ADAC GT Masters. Meanwhile, the FIA World RX of Germany is a fully electric event with plenty of power under the bonnet. On the other hand, vehicles from all eras of motorsport await at a wide variety of classic car events such as the AvD-Oldtimer-Grand-Prix or the ADAC 1000-km-Race. Those who prefer to experience racing on two wheels will also find exciting dates in the calendar. The traditional start of the season for bikers, the "Anlassen" motorbike service, will also be held again in 2022. The emotional conclusion here is the joint parade of all participants over the legendary Nordschleife. At sporting events like Rad am Ring and the StrongmanRun, on the other hand, there is no performance measured in horsepower. Here, the participants only use their own muscle power. Away from the race track, the party gets going for the spectators at the Nürburgring Darts Gala. World champions and big names of the sport will be present in the ring°arena on 25 March. Big 24-hour anniversary, a 12-hour premiere and a mega rock festivalIn September, the big 90s party will take place in the same location - among others with the musicians of Caught in the Act or Loona. The indoor event is part of the supporting programme of the new Nürburgring 12h Race, which will celebrate its premiere from 9 - 11 September. The motorsport weekend will be the new highlight of the Nürburgring Endurance Series, which will start a total of eight times on the combination of Grand Prix Track and Nordschleife in 2022. Already in May (26.05. - 29.05.) the 50th anniversary of the legendary 24-hour race will take place. The fans will finally be able to enjoy the complete fan experience again. Including camping, barbecue and party around the Nordschleife, free choice of seats on the grandstands, access to the paddock and the obligatory visit to the grid before the race. There will be a big reunion with the fans just one week later at the Rock am Ring festival. From 3 to 5 June, the bands around the headliners Green Day, Muse and Volbeat will perform here and really heat up the crowd. A day at full throttle at the Nürburgring Driving AcademyFor all those who not only want to experience goosebump moments at events, but also want to put their foot down themselves, the Nürburgring also has an innovation in its programme. In future, participants in the Nürburgring Driving Academy training sessions will sit in ultra-modern Formula 4 cars. With breathtaking cornering speeds and explosive acceleration - from 0 to 100 km/h: 2.9 seconds - they will race around the Grand Prix Track. Everything is built according to the latest safety standards. The Nürburgring offers around 60 courses, ranging from starter courses to professional formula training. In principle, anyone with a valid driving licence and a maximum height of 1.90 metres and a weight of 110 kilograms can take part.

NÜRBURGRING SEES POSITIVE SIGNAL - NEW BAN AS A CHANCE

18.06.2020

Following the announcement that the ban on major events will be extended until 31 October, the Nürburgring sees positive trends for the staging of events - also with an audience - in the further course of the year. The background to this is that, following the Chancellor's meeting with the Minister Presidents, the ban on major events until the end of October 2020 will only apply if contact tracking and compliance with hygiene regulations are not possible. But this is exactly what would be feasible at the race track. That is why those responsible are looking positively into the future.   "The Nürburgring is a structured event location and after all the longest permanent race track in the world with plenty of space for distance and a suitable infrastructure for hygiene measures," says Nürburgring Managing Director Mirco Markfort. "Regulated access to the grounds, fixed seating on spacious grandstands and numerous sanitary facilities as well as hygiene points are decisive things which, in our opinion, make it possible to comply with various guidelines".    The Nürburgring has been able to gain good experience in the implementation of offers using specially developed health concepts since the beginning of the Corona pandemic. Analogous to the step-by-step relaxation, the "contactless tourist drives" started as early as April and shortly afterwards other driving offers such as formula courses, sports driver training or "free driving" followed. On 27 June the Nürburgring Endurance Series will now enter its first race in 2020, under its own hygiene concept and for the time being as a ghost race without spectators. The next days and weeks will show what will be possible According to the latest announcement from the conference of the Chancellor and the ministers, those responsible now see the decisive differentiation in terms of the conditions for banning events as the next good step. On this basis, the Nürburgring continues to adhere to its calendar and hopes to be able to organise events with spectators again in the future, after ghost races.    "Even though these are extremely difficult times, we are currently very happy that the Endurance Series can start again and look forward to the rest of the year in which, for example, the AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix, the ADAC GT Masters, the ADAC TOTAL 24-hour race, the DTM or a World RX of Germany will be held," says Markfort and also points to the fact that the special atmosphere of the Nürburgring events is decisively created with and by the fans. "That's why we are working hard to ensure that there can be spectators again. The concepts are constantly refined and adapted to the requirements. The next days and weeks will show what will be possible and to what extent. The course of the pandemic is, of course, also decisive for this, in addition to the dialogue with all those involved."      Photo: Robert Kah / Nürburgring
