    Engine : Flux Core Capacitor

    Question Questions regarding a trip to the Nurburgring.

    1. What are the legal requirments to drive through Germany ?
    (i.e. Road Tax ?, in car safety equipment etc.)

    2. How easy is it to find camping sites close to the circuit and approx. cost to camp ?

    3. What does it cost to do a lap of the circuit ?

    4. What safety equipment is needed to go on the circuit ?

    5. What else should i know about doing this trip from start to finish ?
    (bare in mind, i've frequently driven in France but never driven in Germany).

    Thanks in advance.
    FIL.

    If the car is legal in the UK its legal in Germany (in summer at least). You need spare bulbs, gb sticker and hi vis jacket.

    Driving in german is generaly good. Just remember if your not overtaking dont stay in the wrong lane. If someone comes up behind you with ther indicator on as if to drive into the central reservation they are on a high speed run, and move out of their way. The motorways are getting busier in German especialy as most are 2 lane, which means the driving isnt as good as it was, but still a lot better then here. Remember that there is a speed limit at every junction, and different speeds at night in some places. Also there are tailgating cameras.

    The rest, have a look at http://nurburgring.org.uk/ as that will answer any question related to the ring itself.

    Thanks chaps. This trip looks like it'll be happening.

    Day at Nurburgring and then driving over to Le Mans for the 24hr race (2012 of course !).

    Fil just a but of input... make sure you go on a day the track is open for the free laps (can't rememeber the translation) as its not open every day to road users and the timings differ

    Just a mistake I know some people have made to end up disapointed

    As for the indicator thing on the autobahn its illegal so don't worry to much about them, usually just a cocky kraut giving you grief in his Audi estate... Speed cameras are a worry but with the UK plates you will be fine ... they chase up the army plates grrrrr :P

    Nurburgring.org.uk guide
    This guide includes the most essential information from Nurburgring.org.uk and will be updated
    throughout the year. Feel free to send any corrections or suggestions to nurburgring.org.uk@gmail.com
    Essential advice
    If you own a car registered in the UK and haven’t specifically bought insurance for the Nurburgring,


    consider yourself
    uninsured when driving on the track. Even if you can’t find a disclaimer in your policy,
    your insurance company will find a way to wriggle out of covering you.
    Don’t time yourself unless you want to increase your chances of crashing.
    Obey the rules of the Ring. Stick to the right and slow down if you see anybody waving at you from the
    side of the track; there may be trouble ahead.
    If your car starts leaking fluid, pull over immediately and warn others without endangering yourself. Do
    not continue driving, just suck up the cost of the tow truck back to the car park. If somebody else crashes
    because of fluids leaked from your car, it could cost them their life.
    There are some great roads around the Nurburgring, but please remember that they are public.
    The surrounding area
    Adenau


    is the main town for food / drink / entertainment and is signposted from most places. It is on the
    west side of the Ring, near the Breidscheid entrance.

    Nurburg is a small town near the entrance of the
    Ring.

    As implied above, sometimes the 'Ring is closed to the public because it's been booked by either car manufacturers or tyre companys, so check ahead.

    I was advised to carry the cash for recovery should you need it! I think is was about 180euro.

    Oh... and don't forget to check your car insurance policy and ensure it doesn't have restrictions on the ring. Many have it in the small print as its a toll road not a race track...

    So if your not covered... the same rules apply to an accident as on a normal road including insurance cover, damage to vehicles, roads, street furniture... and you can get jail time if you can't pay up
