The month starts with a premiere: the DLMM (July 5 - 7) is coming to the ring°boulevard for the first time as one of the biggest darts tournaments in Europe. At the International ADAC Truck Grand Prix (July 11 - 14), more than 100,000 visitors will once again celebrate a lively and fun-filled trucking weekend. Just a week later, the Nordschleife will become a two-wheeler mecca at Rad am Ring (July 19 - 21) and the Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe (July 26 - 28) will bring a huge field of super sports cars to the Grand Prix circuit at the end of the month. At the wheel of one of the 50 GT3 cars: motorcycle legend Valentino Rossi. The events at a glance: Int. ADAC Truck-Grand-Prix  (July 11 - 14)Music, trade fair, motorsport: the Truck Grand Prix combines all of this into a unique event. Race trucks from the FIA European Truck Racing Championship will be competing for points and trophies on the track. Other races such as the ADAC GT Masters round off the horsepower action. Manufacturers, haulage companies and suppliers present themselves to the public in the paddock. Also on hand: the children's area - including a duck rodeo and bouncy castles. The Müllenbachschleife, part of the Grand Prix circuit, will be transformed into a festival area. There will be a country evening on Friday - with Tom Astor, among others. Saturday promises a party atmosphere. Isi Glück, Julian Benz, Nancy Franck and Peter Wackel will ensure a good mood. For the first time this year, music-only tickets are available for the Truck Grand Prix. 10 euros for the country evening on Friday, 12.50 euros for the party evening on Saturday. Day tickets for the entire event are available for 20 euros.

The series brings one of the largest GT starting fields in the world to the Eifel - with many well-known racing drivers and teams. Nürburgring fans will be very familiar with racing teams such as ROWE Racing, GetSpeed and Walkenhorst Motorsport, as well as the drivers: Maro Engel, Augusto Farfus and Marco Wittmann, to name but a few. The best known, however, is Valentino Rossi. The Italian motorcycle star is also fast on four wheels. One thing is just like in his MotoGP days: his iconic starting number 46.

Easter 2024 at the Nürburgring


There is something for everyone at the Nürburgring around Easter: As is well known, the weekend is traditionally dominated by tourist drives. From Good Friday (March 29) up to and including Easter Monday (April 1), the Nordschleife and Grand Prix circuit open their doors to everyone every day. In addition, there is plenty to experience at the Nürburgring as a destination around Easter and the subsequent vacation period. An overview:Four days of tourist driving in a row: Easter is traditionally also a festival for Nürburgring enthusiasts. Both the Nordschleife and the Grand Prix circuit are open to everyone. Cars and motorcyclists can take to the legendary asphalt all day long - subject to road traffic regulations. Further information on the tourist rides can be found here. But there are also numerous HeartRace moments at the Nürburgring destination off the track at Easter and during the subsequent vacation period: experience family fun on the ring°kart track, marvel at historical exhibits in the ring°werk adventure museum, admire fascinating digital action in the Nürburgring eSports Bar or try on the new Nürburgring collection in the fan store. There is something to experience every day around the ring°boulevard on the Grand Prix Track.  And because all this makes you hungry and thirsty: numerous restaurants at the Nürburgring will make tired men, moms and mini-racing fans feel lively again. Opposite the ring°boulevard, guests are spoiled for choice: LUCIA - Pollo Italiano serves dolce vita and fresh chicken made to an Italian recipe, while the Bitburger Gasthaus next door offers home-style cooking and an outdoor terrace with a great view. The view from the Devil's Diner is at least as good: located on the access road to the Nordschleife on the outskirts of Nürburg, visitors have a perfect view of the action during the tourist races at Easter.

Nürburgring prepared for rush of visitors on Good Friday


All over Germany, car enthusiasts gather in various public places on Good Friday to share their passion. At the Nürburgring, a large crowd is expected again this year when thousands of visitors gather around the track. The Nürburgring operating company is deploying a team of over 150 stewards, security staff and traffic wardens to support the measures and visitor management of the public order office and the police. A central aspect of the close cooperation is the protection of the region and nature from excessive noise and waste. Although there is no event at the Nürburgring on Good Friday, thousands of people come. The fascination of the world-famous race track has also made it a popular destination for tuners on this day. For the Nürburgring, the public order office and the police, there is therefore one thing above all else on the agenda: to control and educate the many visitors accordingly and to punish any infringements. In order to relieve traffic and the local areas, the B412 will be closed in coordination with those responsible at Nürburgring 1927 GmbH & Co. KG, Landesbetrieb Mobilität, the Ahrweiler district administration and the Mayen police headquarters, the B412 will be opened to through traffic. However, depending on capacity utilization in the Brünnchen and Pflanzgarten areas, traffic may be temporarily closed and diverted. In addition, various traffic circles will be set up so that only straight through traffic is possible. Extensive parking facilities along the Nordschleife and Grand Prix TrackThe Nürburgring will provide extensive parking facilities around the circuit in order to reduce congestion as much as possible. Almost all parking spaces in the A zone near the Grand Prix circuit are open, as well as additional parking spaces in the B zone if required. On the Nordschleife, in addition to the best-known Brünnchen and Pflanzgarten parking lots, other areas in the Schwalbenschwanz and, if all parking areas in Adenau are full, other spaces in the Adenauer Forst will also be open. A large contingent of stewards and additional security personnel will also monitor the ban on barbecues and camping. Traffic violations will be consistently punishedOverall, a high volume of traffic is to be expected in the area of the main access roads to the Nürburgring, in the town of Adenau and in the surrounding villages. The police will be focusing on possible traffic violations, paying particular attention to road safety and vehicle compliance as well as driver behavior. The message from the law enforcement officers is clear: anyone who behaves "out of line" must expect consequences. These may include all-day bans, vehicle seizures or, in individual cases, confiscation of driving licenses. Illegal parking outside designated areas will ultimately lead to the vehicle being towed away for a fee. An overview of the open parking areas: Parking areas Grand Prix Track: A2, A6, A7, A8, A9, A10, B zone if required Parking areas Nordschleife: Brünnchen P96 Pflanzgarten (P97+P98) Schwalbenschwanz P100 Adenauer Forst (opens when all parking areas in Adenau are full)

The rules of the road traffic regulations apply, including the right-hand driving rule. Overtaking is therefore only permitted on the left. A stopwatch is also not allowed to run while driving.
