Anyone can drive their own car or motorcycle around the world's most famous race track in 2024. The Nürburgring has announced the dates for next year's tourist drives.

There are also evening events on the Grand Prix Track with particularly long opening hours until 8:45 pm. > All dates & open hours From mid-March to mid-November, tourist drivers can look forward to many dates in 2024.

After that, the Nordschleife opens almost every day for those who want to take the track under their own wheels, while the Grand Prix Track opens on selected evening dates. On some days even until 20:45.

A new claim for a legendary destination: nürburgring. we make your heart race.

08.03.2023

The Nürburgring is more than just a race track. Nestled in the Eifel forests and firmly rooted in the region, it has been an international place of emotion, passion and unique stories for almost 100 years. And for Nürburgring fans from all over the world, it is one thing above all: a place of solidarity and community – a kind of home. The fact that emotional moments, people and a very special feeling of longing make up the Nürburgring will be visible and tangible this season under the new claim of the destination. Because from now on, the motto at the Nürburgring is: we make your heart race.   This claim stands for the passion of the employees and the Nürburgring companies, who see themselves as pioneers of unique moments and for the diverse experiences that the players and visitors experience here. It stands for goose bumps and heart throbbing, for adrenaline and joy, for an incomparable challenge. These emotions can be triggered just as much by a visit to the Nürburgring Endurance Series or by an overnight stay right next to the race track at the Nürburgring Congress Hotel managed by Lindner. A ride in a kart, in the passenger seat of a racing car or in the simulator of the Nürburgring eSports bar also causes special palpitations – and participation in a company event with a direct view of the race track is just as special. All of this is the "Nürburgring" emotion that creates special impressions and memories for everyone involved. Beyond the on-site experience, the Nürburgring feeling is transported around the world. Through emotional scenes – for example in the live broadcast of a race from Nürburgring.tv or in the new image clip of the destination. And of course there are a variety of emotional image motifs from all events and moments at the Nürburgring via the Nürburgring communication channels. No matter where, no matter what time: everyone should have the opportunity to experience a piece of the Nürburgring and, of course, to feel for themselves what it means when it says: "nuerburgring. we make your heart race."

Porsche 911 GT3 RS laps the Ring in 6:49.328 minutes

13.10.2022

The new Porsche 911 GT3 RS lapped the Nordschleife in 6:49.328 minutes - 10.6 seconds faster than the current 911 GT3. At the wheel was Porsche brand ambassador Jörg Bergmeister, who was intensively involved in the development of the new top model of the 911 series. The lap time was achieved in the presence of a notary. The new 911 GT3 RS is uncompromisingly designed for maximum performance. In doing so, the 386 kW (525 hp) road-legal high-performance sports car consistently uses technologies and principles from motorsport. In addition to the high-revving naturally aspirated engine with racing genes and intelligent lightweight construction, it is above all the cooling and aerodynamic concept that proves the direct kinship with its motorsport brethren. At 285 km/h, the 911 GT3 RS achieves a total downforce of 860 kilograms - three times as much as a 911 GT3. > Rekord drives at the Nürburgring "The 911 GT3 RS was able to prove today what you can already see at first glance - its absolute competence on the racetrack," says Andreas Preuninger, Model Series Manager GT vehicles. "Considering the less than ideal conditions with a strong headwind on the long Döttinger Höhe straight and excessively cool asphalt temperatures, we are satisfied with the time. The 911 GT3 RS sets new standards in the areas of aerodynamics and chassis. There has never been so much motorsport in a road car." The 911 GT3 RS with Weissach package was equipped with the optionally available Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 R tyres in the dimensions 275/35 R 20 at the front and 335/30 R21 at the rear. The new 911 GT3 RS completed the previously used shortened lap in 6:44.848 minutes."Due to the strong, sometimes gusty wind, we lost a little downforce. Nevertheless, I'm very happy with the lap," says Jörg Bergmeister. "Especially in the fast sections, the 911 GT3 RS is in a league of its own. Here the car is on a level that you otherwise only know from high-class race cars. The car also sets new standards in braking. This makes fast laps on the Nordschleife simply a lot of fun." Frank Moser, Head of the 911 and 718 series, followed the fast lap from the pit wall: "I am incredibly proud of what the entire team has achieved in the development and testing of the new 911 GT3 RS. Jörg Bergmeister nailed it today and fully exploited the car's potential in the not so easy conditions at the Ring today. The 911 is always good for a surprise and proves that the rear-engined concept is still excellent for high-performance sports cars."

In addition, a real world premiere awaits at the Nürburgring Endurance Series in October. However, this will remain a secret until the race weekend. Tickets for the Nürburgring Endurance Series are available for a family-friendly 18 euros per person (children up to 14 years free). This not only gets you into the open grandstands at the Grand Prix circuit and the exclusive spectator areas Brünnchen and Pflanzgarten, but also into the paddock, the pit lane, the starting grid and the motorsport experience museum ring°werk. Holiday offers | 1 - 31 October & Green Hell Driving Days | 1 - 3 OctoberFor all those who are not racing drivers but still want to take the legendary Nordschleife under their own wheels, there are the tourist drives on the Nordschleife and the Grand Prix circuit. Anyone can take part with their own vehicle, subject to the road traffic regulations. A special highlight in October are the Green Hell Driving Days. From 1 to 3 October, the Nordschleife is open all day for tourist drivers. For families and Nürburgring fans, there are also holiday offers. Here, too, fast laps can be taken - for example in the ring°kartbahn or in the eSports Bar. Meanwhile, everything about the history of the Nürburgring can be found in the ring°werk motorsport experience museum or on the backstage tour. The latter offers a great look behind the scenes. ADAC/RGB Season Finale | 1 - 2 October & ADAC Westfalen Trophy | 14 - 16 OctoberThere are no less than two events revolving around historic motorsport at the Grand Prix Track of the Nürburgring in October. The RGB season finale on 1 and 2 October offers almost a dozen race series on one weekend. Among others, the Youngtimer Trophy, the Dunlop Historic Endurance Cup or the so-called "battle of the dwarfs". At the ADAC Westfalen Trophy, from 14 to 16 October, the touring car legends with their partly historic vehicles will make the fans' hearts beat faster. Cup and GT cars from 1970 to 2008 will be competing in the Touring Car Classic. The regularity test of the Touring Car Revival or the DMV Classic Masters with their touring cars and GT racing cars also promise a lot of excitement. The final of the ADAC Racing Weekend will also take place as part of the Westfalen Trophy. Here you can also experience the latest racing cars. For example, racy open-wheelers as part of the ADAC Formula 4 or full-blown GT3 bolides at the Special Touring Car Trophy H&R Cup. Highlights in October: 01.10. – 02.10.
