Nürburg. The new management at the Nürburgring officially starts their work on January 1st. Nevertheless, Ingo Böder and Christian Stephani have already made an important decision: The prices for tourist trips remain stable - despite inflation and despite increased costs. At the same time, the race track is publishing the dates for the 2022 tourist drives on the Grand-Prix track and the legendary Nordschleife. This also includes the highlight weekends such as the “Green Hell Driving Days” and the Easter weekend, which offer several days of driving fun at a time. For frequent drivers there is still the offer of the season card, which is available from January 11th.
"In these times, when so many things are getting more expensive, we want to give the fans of our racetrack a piece of consistency," says the future management of the Nürburgring operating company. The decision in favor of stable prices is therefore also a sign of solidarity in difficult times. In addition to occasional drivers from all over the world, a large community of fans has formed who regularly drive their own vehicles on the track. The rules for driving as part of the tourist drives are very simple: In principle, anyone who has a driver's license and a registered, roadworthy car or motorcycle can drive on the Grand-Prix track or the Nordschleife. The rules of the road traffic regulations apply. This means that, for example, the right-hand drive applies and overtaking is therefore only permitted on the left. A stopwatch is also not allowed to run while driving. These rules define the tourist trips as a ride for everyone and clearly separate them from racing events.
Tourist trips almost daily - first date on March 12th
The Nürburgring 1927 GmbH & Co. KG has now published the dates for everyone who wants to take the historic race track under their own wheels. The official start of the tourist driver season will be given on Saturday, March 12th. From March 21st, things really get going: the racetrack opens its barriers to private drivers almost every day. The Green Hell Driving Days and the Easter weekend promise to be real highlights again. From April 15 to 18, from June 16 to 19 and from October 1 to 3, the Nürburgring can be used for several days from morning to evening.
A round of the Nordschleife starts at 25 euros
In addition to the dates in 2022, our website offers the option of topping up credit for tourist trips. With a customer account, everyone can keep an eye on their personal data. Since the lap prices remain stable in the sixth year, a lap on the Nordschleife still costs 25 euros from Monday to Thursday and 30 euros from Friday to Sunday and on public holidays. On the Grand-Prix track, regardless of the day of the week, the 15-minute stint is also available for 30 euros. Anyone looking for unlimited driving pleasure is well advised with the season card. It is available for 2,200 euros and entitles you to drive on the Nordschleife and the Grand-Prix track. Until it starts again, the fans have to be patient a little longer. The asphalt on the wintry Nürburgring is currently being renewed. The work will be completed in time for the start of the season and then, as usual, offer all drivers the best conditions.
