The highlights come in a double pack at the Nürburgring in October. From the Nürburgring Endurance Series, which heralds the hot final phase of the championship with two races, to historic motorsport at the ADAC/RGB season finale and ADAC Westfalen Trophy. In addition, leisure and holiday activities await the visitors. The Green Hell Driving Days even offer three whole days of driving fun at a stretch for tourist drivers and for the family adventure there is plenty to discover not only in the motorsport experience museum ring°werk.
A brief portrait of the highlights
Nürburgring Endurance Series | 8 and 22 October
At the Nürburgring Endurance Series, decisive points in the battle for the championship will be awarded on 8 and 22 October. Before races seven and eight, the driver team of Oskar Sandberg, Sindre Setsaas and Daniels Zils is leading the standings. The three drive a BMW 330i for the Adrenalin Motorsport Team Alzner Automotive.
A highlight in the starting field is on the horizon for the race on 22 October. The return of the Porsche 911 GT3 R from Manthey is expected here. The green-and-yellow crowd favourite will be back in action on the Nordschleife for the first time since the ADAC TotalEnergies 24h Nürburgring. 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 October
For 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 October
There 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.
